Shared IP from Saba and Halogen delivers people-centric innovation in ongoing performance, modern learning and real-time engagement

Las Vegas, NV – October 10, 2017 – HR Technology Conference & Exposition — Saba, a leading provider of people-centric talent management solutions, today announced powerful new advances in the latest editions of Saba Cloud™ and Halogen TalentSpace™ platforms, being showcased at the HR Technology Conference & Exposition.

Real-time employee engagement comes to TalentSpace

Halogen Pulse is a simple and effective way for employees to share feedback on what HR and business leaders need to know, when they need it. HR can create new pulse survey questions as needed, suggest recommended actions for employees based on their responses, and get more meaningful data that that can be used to boost productivity and engagement.

Customers can leverage the unmatched continuous performance management capabilities of TalentSpace through real-time engagement and sentiment analysis with the delivery of Halogen Pulse™. The real-time engagement features first delivered in Saba Cloud platform are now available with the TalentSpace Suite giving customers the ability to use employee sentiment insights to quickly improve their performance and talent programs.

With Halogen Pulse, employees have an easy way to provide confidential feedback about their feelings, opinions and perceptions of the organization and key initiatives. The real-time survey data gives managers and leadership immediate visibility into employee sentiment, allowing them to quickly measure the impact of talent initiatives on employee performance and engagement, and connect them to tangible business value and impact.

"I'm excited about what Halogen Pulse brings to the market because it can help organizations capture valuable feedback about employee engagement on an ongoing basis," said Julie Gray, People Solutions Business Partner, Assiniboine Credit Union. "The ability to create custom pulse surveys and the flexibility to ask questions based on organizational priorities at any given point in time will help HR leaders act quickly based on real-time data about what matters most to employees."

Saba Cloud boosts ongoing performance with enhanced goals, check-ins and competency models

Saba has also applied the insight and design principles from Halogen's industry-leading continuous performance management solution to Saba Cloud. HR leaders, managers and employees now have an easier, more intuitive process for goal setting, weighting and management. Goal weighting and improved goal visibility across teams and projects also streamlines performance check-in within the platform.
