Performance Appraisals Managers Will Love: Halogen Software and HCI Deliver ‘Rocking’ Webcast

Human Capital Thought Leader Cathy Martin and HR Leader Maria Calabrese Share Practical Ways to Improve “The Dreaded Performance Review”

Ottawa, ON - July 19, 2011 - Talent Management leader Halogen Software, and the Human Capital Institute invite HR practitioners, business managers and media to join their upcoming webcast focused on creating “Performance Appraisals Managers Will Love.” Presented by Human Capital thought leader Cathy Missildine-Martin, co-founder of Intellectual Capital Consulting, and Maria Calabrese, HR leader at Halogen customer Fazio, Mannuzza, Roche, Tankel, LaPilusa, LLC, the educational session is meant to provide practical insight and ideas on how to add meaning to a process that forms the linchpin of talent management, but that has long been considered problematic by HR, managers and employees alike.

Recent research from the Hackett Group shows that successful talent management requires a team effort among HR, business managers and senior company management. Companies considered talent management maturity leaders – that outperform their peers in terms of corporate performance – demonstrate strong HR business collaboration and hold managers accountable for the success of their talent management programs.

While research has linked effective performance management to improved corporate performance, many organizations continue to struggle with the process. Cathy Martin elaborates: “Manager engagement in the appraisal process is critical to the success of ongoing performance management, yet often it’s seen as an uncomfortable chore, with little value, instead of an important tool for development and improvement. We’re pleased to collaborate with Halogen Software and HCI to share ideas on how can HR professionals create an appraisal process for that works for managers and HR.”

This webcast will:

  • Help HR practitioners put the appraisal process in a different context for managers
  • Share practical steps and positive outcomes for performance appraisal process
  • Provide information on how to equip managers for success in the performance management process
  • Demonstrate how Halogen clients like Fazio, Mannuzza, Roche, Tankel, LaPilusa, LLC, have transformed the appraisal process from a necessary administrative task, to a meaningful way for managers to drive high performance
