Halogen Software and Performing Ideas HR Form Strategic Partnership

Talent management leader and expert Swedish HR consultancy collaborate to help companies in the Nordic market derive strategic value from their human capital initiatives

Amsterdam, NL – March 30, 2015 — Halogen Software (TSX: HGN) and Swedish-based human capital consultancy, Performing Ideas HR, announced today a new partnership to help Nordic customers gain strategic value from their human capital initiatives. This partnership combines the value of Halogen’s award-winning TalentSpace™ suite with the strategic talent management consulting services provided by Performing Ideas HR to give Nordic customers best-practice technologies and consulting for developing top talent.

According to Deloitte’s 2015 Global Human Capital Trends report “there is a yawning gap between what business leaders want and the capabilities of HR to deliver.” The report provides a global overview of this gap and shows Nordic countries as one region that needs to improve. [1]

“With Halogen we can offer our clients industry-leading software that complements our talent management consulting services,” says Magnus Drogell, Chief Operating Officer, Performing Ideas HR. “We think it’s a great combination to help our clients connect their talent strategies to the strategic imperatives of their business.”

Nick Kemp, Regional Director, EMEA for Halogen, expands on how this partnership will support Nordic customers in developing their human capital as a strategic, sustained competitive advantage:

“For organizations to derive long-term value from their human capital investments and to ensure sustained business success, they need a strong talent management strategy paired with the right technology. We partnered with Performing Ideas HR because their consulting services are a great complement to our solutions, making them a strong partner as we expand into the Nordic market and look to offer additional support to our existing customers in this region.”
