Halogen Software Customer Conference Heads West in 2013

Halogen’s largest conference to date features thought leadership from Chester Elton and industry analysts and more than 50 sessions focused on helping attendees build a world-class workforce

Ottawa, ON – May 24, 2013 – At the 8th annual Halogen Software Customer Conference, Halogen Software customers will gain insight into driving talent management strategy and execution. Taking place at the Green Valley Ranch Resort and Spa in Henderson, Nevada, from September 22 to 24, the conference features more than 50 valuable learning and education sessions, making it the largest Halogen customer conference to date.

Firing up the opening keynote is best-selling business author and acclaimed speaker Chester Elton, whose work has been described as a “must read for modern managers” by Larry King. Based on his breakthrough research, Elton will present a simple 7-step roadmap all leaders can follow to create a high-achieving culture within their own teams.

“Recognizing and appreciating your employees is an essential part of keeping and engaging your best people,” says Elton. “The numbers are irrefutable. Managers that give recognition, that build better teams get to their business goals faster.” For more information on what Elton will discuss, see his video.

The Conference will continue to heat up with other insightful keynote addresses, a significantly expanded agenda, workshops and training:

  • Claire Schooley, Senior Analyst at Forrester Research, will explore the strategy and technology associated with talent management, including performance, succession planning, formal and informal learning, and recruiting in Tuesday’s opening keynote.
  • Josh Bersin, Principal and Founder of Bersin by Deloitte, will share how leaders can deliver exceptional business performance via their talent management programs in the conference’s closing keynote.

    • Tips and Tools sessions to help customers gain expertise in and get even more from Halogen’s powerful features and capabilities
    • Lessons in Advancement sessions, led by Halogen consultants and trainers, to help customers use metrics and process analysis in Halogen and explore how customers can help each of their stakeholders (i.e., executives, managers and employees) be more effective at talent management
    • Special Healthcare Track highlighting some of the unique talent management issues and processes facing healthcare organizations today
  • Several sessions at the conference are being pre-approved for HRCI Recertification Credit, including Sharlyn Lauby’s post-conference workshop: Employee Engagement Boot Camp.
