Overall Satisfaction with Saba TalentSpace (formerly Halogen)

We use Saba Talent Space and Job Description builder. It is managed by the Human Resources department and is used throughout the organization. We not only use the system as it was intended to handle things like a 90 day appraisal and the annual appraisal as well as assigning and signing off on job descriptions. We also use the system to reduce paper processes. Other process we use halogen for are performance improvement, tuition reimbursement, continuing education, exit interviews, fitness subsidy reimbursement and signing off on policies and procedures. Many of our processes are set up on automatic pilot for enrollment.
Using Halogen again helps us to convert paper processes into electronic ones improving accountability and compliance. All of this works to improve employee satisfaction and increased feedback and recognition.

Haven't used or evaluation any other systems.
The support center is great. They are willing to take the time to listen and evaluate your issues. They also have Saba Champions where you can seek information from colleagues who also use the system.
I have changed company reps numerous times and have lost track. I had my first one for a long time and we even became friends. Since then mine changes almost 2-3 times a year. Not sure if it is because of the merger or what. Not sure how everything will work now that Cornerstone has purchased Saba.

Would you buy Saba TalentSpace (formerly Halogen) again?

Yes

One thing I really appreciate about Saba is the support department. Whenever I want to create a process they will listen and help me by providing options on what the system's capabilities are.

Some of the language within the forms cannot be changed unless you change the language in the entire system. So the more creative you become the system can become more restrictive.
