Halogen Software, a global leader in talent management solutions today announced it will be teaming up with leading experts in Australia to address people management challenges facing by HR professionals in business and government.  The series, which kicks off next week, will focus on the issues of talent attraction, retention, and development.

The Australian Human Resources Institute has identified talent management and engagement as the number one priority for Australian businesses over the next decade.  Employee engagement continues to be an area of particular concern with the ORC 2012 Global Perspectives Survey ranking Australia 10th out of 19 countries when it comes to engagement. Australia ranked behind emerging markets such as India and lower than Canada and the U.S.

The first webinar in this series will examine the findings of the 2012 Global Perspectives Survey and provide actionable strategies for organisations in Austraila, New Zealand and Asia Pacific that want to improve employee engagement.
