Halogen Announces Employee Performance and Talent Management Suite for Professional Services

ORLANDO, FL, May 7 -- World at Work, Total Rewards Conference - Halogen Software Inc., the leading provider of Web-based employee performance and talent management software, today announced the release of the Halogen Employee Performance and Talent Management Suite for Professional Services. The suite is based on Halogen's extensive experience working with professional services organizations including engineering, accounting, legal and technical services firms. This new offering for professional services includes Halogen eAppraisal for Professional Services, as well as eCompensation, eSuccession and e360.

Professional services firms generate revenue through the services provided by their employees. As a result, these organizations compete and thrive based on the strength and knowledge of their people and the billable hours they produce. These firms compete for scarce talent and have to focus more on developing and retaining existing talent than ever before. Employees and prospective employees have more choices today and just as in any industry they want to be engaged with their day-to-day work and their organization.

Certified Public Accountants and Consulting firm, Clark Nuber PS, relies on Halogen Software to manage its unique employee performance and talent management requirements. "Our teams change frequently and our employees expect detailed feedback," said Lizzie Rahm, HR Generalist, Clark Nuber PS. "Halogen eAppraisal forms are simple, and we're able to cover off all the areas relevant to our business so we can capture feedback constantly for the project based evaluations, in addition to providing an annual review. The process makes our teams more efficient."

Halogen's Employee and Talent Management Suite for Professional Services enables firms to automate project evaluations as they conclude and enables project leaders to provide feedback that can be leveraged for immediate development. Using the specialized suite, firms are also able to review and compare the performance of interns or summer associates in one process, assess all employees using a powerful library of competencies and comment help specifically tailored to professional services and consolidate all facets of a complete performance appraisal process in one common interface. Finally, the suite provides detailed ratings and feedback that not only measure an employee's current performance, but act as a guide indicating the capabilities required for advancement.

Multi-Rater Feedback for Professional Services

Professional service firms often operate using project teams that do not have typical reporting relationships. Employees spend most of their working hours in temporary relationships with co-workers and project managers. During the performance review process, managers require feedback and performance results from others who have worked closely with a particular employee to create fair and useful appraisals. Halogen's Professional Services Suite includes eAppraisal Professional Services and Multi-Rater. Multi-Rater enables organizations to easily manage multi-rater feedback for busy line managers, mentors and partners and the results can be used to automatically create performance evaluations. Multi-Rater also automates the downward feedback process so that input from partners and principals is collected consistently and efficiently.

"Our use of multi-rater feedback has resulted in employees re-evaluating how they interact with their peers," said Renee Boyce, HR Manager, J.H. Findorff & Son Inc. "The intent of feedback is to offer constructive feedback. It's the surprised employees who have the most to gain from the process. By adjusting their behavior they can improve their teamwork and their careers. Now employees take the feedback as a challenge. We find that since the feedback is from more than just their manager, employees are more accepting of the comments. It also helps us develop more well-rounded employees."
