Big Name on Campus: Halogen Software for Talent Management in Higher Education

Growing number of colleges and universities using the Halogen Talent Management Suite™ to effectively evaluate and develop staff and faculty

Ottawa, ON– April 16, 2013 – A growing number of higher education institutions, of all sizes and curricula, have selected Halogen Software as their evaluation, succession planning and learning management platform of choice. More than 80 institutions across North America currently rely on the Halogen Talent Management Suite™ for Education to simplify their performance evaluation process, improve staff development, and reduce administration overhead.

University of British Columbia, Wayne State University, Wharton County Junior College, St. Mary’s of California, and Cincinnati State have all recently selected Halogen’s talent management solutions for higher education. They join a prominent group of institutions using Halogen to evaluate and develop staff, including University of Ottawa, Herzing University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology – Facilities Group, Purdue University – Food Services Division, and University of Miami.

With Halogen, higher education institutions can more effectively evaluate and provide development plans for a large variety of staff and faculty, align goals and objectives to strategic plans, and develop talent pools for succession planning to stay competitive. As a result institutions are able to transform what was once a burdensome administrative process into a strategic activity that drives performance and development accountability, and makes the performance management process more meaningful.

“For the full range of staff and some faculty, Halogen has given us one simplified and integrated talent management system,” said Manon Dugal, Director of Human Resources Advisory Services at the University of Ottawa. “We’re now able to use a wealth of features to collect and analyze data and gain better insight into our employees. This enables us to align our employee performance goals and development activities to support our strategic plan.”

Moreover, Halogen enables these institutions to effectively evaluate and provide development plans for a wide range of employees. “Students and faculty are usually top of mind in higher education communities, but Halogen recognizes that a wide variety of personnel are essential in delivering successful educational experiences,” said Donna Ronayne, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Halogen Software.

The Halogen Talent Management Suite for Education provides education specific competencies, coaching and development tips, goal management and process flexibility to meet the unique performance management needs of staff in higher education. In addition, the solution can be used to capture employee knowledge and skills that reach beyond current job descriptions—enabling institutions to tap into to a wealth of talent that was previously difficult to identify, track and integrate with short- and long-term strategies. With Halogen, higher education institutions are better positioned to quickly identify any requirements or gaps across the organization, develop talent pools for succession planning, and stay competitive.
