Achievers

Achievers is well suited as a rewards and recognition platform - which is what it was designed for. It's less appropriate for a company intranet to share files and documents with one another. Allowing users to do both on one platform would be a great solution for bridging the gap between corporate communication and rewards.

Halogen has been transformative for us in how we approach the manager and employee performance conversations, goal setting and feedback. The 1:1 module and performance processes have provided an incredible platform for tracking, reporting and standardizing the way our company approaches these performance areas while still allowing flexibility for the manager and employee. The system worked so well for us because we did not have a process in place and our implementation team was able to help us create our process for this using the system capabilities.

  • The coaching piece is great because we personalize it with our values and branding.
  • We have customized the feedback piece with our own visuals and branding. It makes it easy for our managers to give and track feedback.
  • We use if for onboarding pieces. I like that it sends automatic reminders.

Cons

  • Relevance of rewards catalog
  • Exchange rate of catalog items
  • Would be nice to see deeper integration with company intranets

  • Halogen is working on it as an enhancement but the ability to use a track changes feature in Job Description Builder.
  • Ability to run reports more easily between concurrent processes.

No one is perfect, but Halogen's support comes very close. They're extremely helpful and always pleasant and friendly.

Better than ADP, not quite at the level of Workday. However Workday does not accommodate smaller organizations nor provide as strong of an implementation team. ADP doesn't come close to either system.

Return on Investment

  • Positive: it has increased our company's ability to express gratitude for exceptional work
  • Positive: it has increased our company's overall morale
  • Negative: rewarding points for gratitude can be expensive depending on the size of the company
Michael Whatley profile photo
  • Halogen has allowed us to automate our review process. This means that instead of keeping paper copies and a manual tracking spreadsheet of who has turned in their review; Halogen has allowed the HR team to really hold employees, particularly managers, accountable to accurate completion of employee reviews.
