Leading Recognition Company Herff Jones Chooses Halogen Software for Talent Management

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct 23, 2012) - Leading recognition company, Herff Jones has selected Halogen Software to help reinforce the company''s core values via its performance and talent management strategy. 

A century old company, with over 4000 employees across the US, Herff Jones is a leading recognition and motivational product manufacturer. With a mandate to leverage its talent strategy and its focus on core values to drive competitive advantage, Herff Jones has migrated from a manual paper driven process, to Halogen''s award-winning talent management solution.

"Technology has radically changed our business, and our employee and business needs have also evolved, " said Denise McGinley, Corporate Employee Relations Manager, Herff Jones. "And we''re in the achievement business so we feel we should be the best in the industry in helping our employees excel and perform at a higher level. Halogen is giving us a great platform to start facilitating conversations about performance and equipping management with the tools they need to drive achievement."

After a rigorous review of multiple vendors Herff Jones selected Halogen eAppraisal™, Halogen e360 Multirater™, and HRIS Connect™ to begin their talent management journey. The choice was largely based on the solution''s ease of use and features like Halogen® Feedback Central™, rich competency management, goal alignment capabilities and multirater feedback that will support the company''s talent management objectives. 

The consistently high level of customer satisfaction and praise of Halogen from HR professionals and the industry was also a significant decision factor. Since the implementation earlier this year, both managers and employees are embracing the new approach to talent management enabled by Halogen, and coaching conversations are now part of the company''s culture. 

"The system is helping to reinforce our core values across the organization," explained McGinley. "Now everyone has a clear picture of how competencies tie back to the company''s core values and the role they have in the company''s success. Every step of the way Halogen lived up to their reputation of a brilliant customer experience, and they are very quickly becoming a valued partner in our success."
