Talent Management Leader opens offices in Netherlands and Quebec City to support increased demand and product innovation
Ottawa, ON – December 15, 2014 — Halogen Software (TSX: HGN) has opened a new field office in the Netherlands, expanding its global field operations to address increased demand for its talent management solutions in Western Europe. The company has also opened a product development office in Quebec City, Canada. This team is responsible for supporting the rapid delivery of new feature enhancements in the company’s award-winning Halogen TalentSpace™ suite.
Western Europe a strong foothold for international growth
Employee engagement and retention risks are driving a demand for improved talent management practices and solutions in Western Europe. In fact, Europe’s employee engagement rate is the lowest of all continents surveyed in AON Hewitt’s 2014 Trends in Global Employee Engagement report.
“We’ve seen strong demand for our solutions in Western Europe,” said Phil Rugani, VP of Sales, Halogen Software. “We’ve expanded into the Netherlands to better serve this region and to ensure we’re providing our customers with the world-class customer experience Halogen is known for.”
Adding SaaS platform expertise in new Quebec City office
Halogen selected Quebec City as a satellite office for its product development team because of the strong base of software developers in the region with experience both in Software as a Service (SaaS) and talent management solutions.
“Our expanded platform team is comprised of tenured Ottawa-based software developers and new team members in our Quebec City office,” said Marc Brûlé, VP of Product Development, Halogen Software. “Together they’re focused on building an even stronger foundation for all our products.”
