Renowned university selects Halogen eAppraisal™ Education to support its student-focused culture and drive employee satisfaction and retention

Herzing University has selectedHalogen Software’s award winning talent management solutions to help align its employee competencies, goal management and development planning processes in support of the university’s student-focused culture. Herzing University is well known for its exceptional student support. With Halogen, the university is creating a strong talent management infrastructure that reinforces this commitment to student success.

"Prior to Halogen, employees didn’t participate in a goal-setting process and we saw that as a missed opportunity in terms of fostering a sense of accountability and drive to improve performance," said Carol Emmel, Manager of Human Resources at Herzing University. "With Halogen, we’ve developed a performance management infrastructure that enables all employees to set goals and this clearly aligns better with our culture."

Herzing selected Halogen eAppraisal™ Education and  Halogen e360 Multirater™ based on the  solution’s usability, strong competency and goal management capabilities, and integrated development planning.

"Halogen is very user-friendly and intuitive, and we like that it is designed to meet our unique needs in the higher education industry," said Emmel. "Linking core competencies to the appropriate appraisal form is straightforward, and all employees - not just HR - can now easily track progress on goals and development plans."

Halogen also is enabling Herzing University to be more strategic in how it invests in employee development, while also ensuring that it is a collaborative process. By aligning training requirements with key competencies for improved performance, Emmel anticipates that Halogen will help drive employee satisfaction and retention.

"Without a doubt, Halogen has exceeded our expectations in terms of how easy it is to implement, and the support we’ve received," Emmel stated.

Halogen eAppraisal Education is the first and only performance management solution designed for the education market. The solution makes it easy for educational institutions of all types to track progress on goals, ensure continuous development and foster better collaboration and coaching - supporting a quality educational experience for all their students.
