Sport Wales Unifies Performance Management and Employee Development with Halogen Software

National sports organisation uses Halogen talent management solutions to align employee performance, development and organisational objectives

London, UK - October 8, 2015 - Halogen Software (TSX: HGN) announced today that Sport Wales is using Halogen's talent management solutions to simplify and streamline its performance management process, quickly identify development needs, and align talent management programs to overall business outcomes.

As the national organisation responsible for increasing participation and improving performance in sport in Wales, the leadership team at Sport Wales sees an obvious link between delivering on its mission and the performance and growth of the organisation's people.

However, prior to implementing Halogen, Sport Wales' disparate talent management processes were viewed as unreliable and time intensive. Annual appraisals were done on paper, 360 feedback evaluations were completed in a separate system, and learning and training needs were extracted by manually reading through each appraisal in the employee's personnel file, which may or may not have been complete.

Since implementing Halogen solutions for performance and learning in 2014, Sport Wales now has a talent management system that unifies the employee performance management and 360 feedback processes with employee development programmes. The integrated online system is easy to navigate and HR and other executive leaders can automatically view important information about employee and organisational performance.

Jennifer Hill, Senior HR Officer, Sport Wales, comments on the transformation since deploying Halogen solutions: "At Sport Wales we place significant priority on the development of our staff. That's why it was so important to us to have an efficient system in place that delivered. With Halogen in place, we are now able to accurately assess employee performance from various sources, easily link learning and development activities to improve performance, then report on individual, department and organisation performance. We see tremendous value in the fact our employee objectives and their ongoing development plans are now directly aligned to our top level organisational priorities."
