Overall Satisfaction with Halogen TalentSpace

Halogen Talent Space is used by the entire company as the main source of performance appraisals and feedback between management and employees. Using the software uniformly allows for greater tracking and reporting ability on the progress of each step in the appraisal process. We are currently trying to implement additional functionality of Halogen Talent Space, including the job description builder and the competency library.
  • The tracking aspect of determining what status a performance appraisal is in for each employee is very useful.
  • The ability for anyone in the organization to provide feedback to another co-worker using the Feedback Central Halogen link in Outlook is truly great.
  • It is also nice, from the administrator side, to be able to set up a New Years evaluation process for every employee and know that the process will be tracked and started based on the time frame that we have established upfront.
  • The navigation from the administrator side is not the most intuitive feature. Some of the programming is very different from other similar software suites that have been used in the past, there is a great learning curve.
  • I wish there were greater connectivity capabilities between Halogen Talent Space and our HRIS system. It would make data integration much less work, and easier to do throughout the year when we add staff to our headcount.
  • Although there was a larger cost upfront with the implementation of Halogen Talent Space, the additional flexibility and capabilities that were gained in the process have made a large difference given the return on investment.
  • Performance Manager
Performance Manager was our previous system.
When there are large enough companies to where manually tracking performance evaluations is no longer possible, Halogen Talent Space offers a pretty remarkable solution. Also, I think the system does a great job of aligning the appraisal process for all of our managers, even though some of them are in very different and varied roles.

Evaluating Halogen and Competitors

Yes - Halogen replaced our previous performance appraisal system that was used in connection with Performance Manager. We needed a more automated system to would eliminate manual processes.
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
The Halogen Saba system had the capabilities for us to automate more than just our performance reviews, it also would allow us to track competencies, credentials, disciplinary reviews, and other employee relations documents.
I would make sure we are asking for more to incorporate into the system and it's libraries that what we will actually use. Our processes are a little more complex that what is needed, because we took off maybe more than we could chew within the first year. We should have just moved into these additional features more naturally as we got accustomed to the system.
