Rediscover the role human resources can play in managing government and nonprofit employee relations.

Every employee goal can be directly linked to the organizational goal or target it supports.

Organizational goal management. Align your workforce with ease.

Halogen Performance™ makes it easy to link government and nonprofit employee goals with organizational and/or departmental objectives, driving alignment and accountability. Employees get a larger context for their work and can keep notes on their progress. And leaders can monitor alignment and goal status with an easy to use HR dashboard and report.

The Talent Pool Report lets you easily identify the best candidates for a key position.

Succession planning. Groom future leaders.

Having skilled staff at the ready to fill vacancies and key positions is critical, as is grooming future leaders. Halogen Succession™ helps human resources implement succession planning for nonprofits or government by identifying all your high potential staff, and gradually developing them for career progression. Now you can create pools of talent in all key areas, and recruit from within, whenever you need to.

An automated agenda and conversation starters help guide discussions between managers and employees.

One-on-one meetings. Build accountability, engagement and retention.

Improve employee relations by building accountability, engagement and retention with regular one-on-one meetings between managers and employees. Halogen 1:1 Exchange™ automatically generates an agenda so managers and employees can review progress on goals, development plans, feedback received, and anything else important to performance management in government and nonprofit organizations. It keeps a record of discussions, and even provides conversation starters.

Easily track and manage employee development activities and their status.

Employee development. Invest in your skilled workforce.

Increase engagement and retention by supporting employee development and career mobility. Halogen Performance™ and Halogen Learning™ team up to help you identify learning needs, then address them with effective development activities that even identify the competencies and skills they are designed to strengthen. Because Halogen software modules all work seamlessly together, investing in your workforce will not only improve retention of government and nonprofit employees, it will also improve the performance of your succession planning strategy.

View the ratings from 360-degree assessments in a split screen, right from within a performance appraisal.

360-degree feedback. Gather feedback from peers, clients and more.

Easily gather feedback from multiple people so managers and employees have a broader picture of performance and development needs. Halogen 360 Multirater™ eliminates the human resource paperwork and hassle associated with 360 degree reviews, and gives you fingertip access to ratings, whenever you need them. And the Halogen Performance Feedback Central™ makes it simple for anyone in a government or a nonprofit organization to share feedback any time.
