Accelerate leadership development and future-proof your business

Skill shortages and weak leadership pipelines are serious issues for many of today’s employers.

The departure or retirement of tenured employees and the accompanying loss of their knowledge and expertise is putting business continuity at risk. Millennials, who make up more than half the workforce, expect leadership paths and work flexibility. Boards of directors are also putting increased pressure on executives to put strategic succession plans in place.

With all these factors at play, it’s never been more important for companies to identify and develop top performers and high-potential employees for career progression.

With Halogen, you can build deep bench strength and strong leadership skills across all critical areas of your business by creating competency-based talent pools that nurture top talent and ensure you retain a highly skilled and engaged workforce.

  • Ensure you have talent ready to step into unexpected vacancies or newly established roles
  • Establish talent pools for all business-critical positions and teams, not just executive roles
  • Engage high-potential employees in the process, offering insight into career paths and development opportunities
  • Align succession planning needs to corporate goals and the organization’s strategic vision
  • Give leaders of today and tomorrow the skills and support needed be effective in their roles

Succession Succession

Link your succession program with your core competencies

Identify, assess, and develop high-potentials and leaders critical to long-term success based on a clearly established competency framework. Create talent pools that are designed to build bench strength for key roles and emerging leaders, and provide career planning opportunities that attract and engage talent at all levels.

Goal 1

Build great leaders with renowned leadership development programs

Once you’ve defined the key competencies that determine leadership success, build focused leader development programs mapped to proven learning that help your managers become more proficient leaders.

Give managers the tools that make coaching and development of high-potential talent an ongoing priority, to build a legacy of great leadership.

Goal 1

Easily identify high-potential employees

Collect key data for succession planning as part of your performance management process and identify high-potential employees and those at risk of leaving. Plot employee performance and potential, identify and assign the best candidates to talent pools and analyze competency gaps with talent assessment processes.

Goal 1

Retain, engage and develop your high-potentials

Demonstrate clear and accelerated career paths to keep high-potential employees motivated and on track. Create individual development plans and learning paths to help these employees achieve proficiency in all the required competencies within their talent pool.

Hold individuals accountable for their own development plans by conducting regular talent assessments to evaluate all employees in a talent pool against your competency model.

Goal 1

Fill mission-critical roles quickly — and effectively

When a leadership role or other critical position becomes available, either through an unexpected departure or to support business growth, easily identify potential successors from within your existing talent pools. Then select the best candidate and promote from within.

Goal 1

Gain valuable succession workforce insights

Quickly assess the health of your succession program through unique and powerful reporting capabilities.

Using succession analytics, gain insight into critical indicators such as high-potential employees and employee retention risks across all departments, potential successors for key positions within talent pools and where strong or weak talent pipelines exist in the organization.

Goal 1


Align succession planning to your talent strategy

Link the goals of your succession program to your organization’s strategic business objectives. Then use a complete talent management solution including performance management, learning and development, compensation and recruitment and onboarding to ensure that all leaders are vested in the ongoing identification, assessment and development of future leaders and critical positions.
