I think it's a good platform for tracking and monitoring goals, feedback, and development. We don't use the 1:1 meeting feature, however, I can see how that would be valuable for many organizations. I do like that it is very customizable, however, that also presents problems in that sometimes forms and/or processes can be a bit challenging to create easily and quickly.

Pros

  • 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

  • My organization does not use all of the functions/modules that Halogen offers, but I find that those modules still appear on the Halogen main page. I think a great area for improvement is to hide these functions so as not to confuse employees.

So far, my experience with Halogen has been a very positive one. I would rate it higher, except due to a few limits to the system we had a few departments opt not to use Halogen for reviews this year. Their evaluation forms were quantitative, and could not be replicated in Halogen. I am hoping that we can come up with a creative solution for next year, but since we implemented and went live with Halogen in a condensed timeframe, it was not possible to meet everyone's needs. Ultimately, we are still quite happy with the product since a vast majority of our corporate workforce was able to use it.

I'm a user, and we get very little complaints about "how hard" it is to use.

Get to know your CAM - Customer Account Manager! They are a lifesaver! (Thanks Jorie Basque!)

Alternatives Considered

Halogen stacks up against Paycom because it is a global solution. Paycom is only used for the U.S. because it is a payroll system that cannot be extended globally.

Return on Investment

  • It has had a positive impact by allowing our employees to view their goals and manage their performance throughout the year.
  • The negative is that there are some modules we pay for that we have never used.
