Halogen Wins Top HR and Training Award

Halogen Elearning Manager™ Recognized by Human Resource Executive® Magazine for Innovative Approach to Performance-Based Learning

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 21, 2009) - Halogen Software today announced it has received a Top Training Product award from Human Resource Executive Magazine for its Halogen eLearning Manager(TM) solution. The company is well known for delivering award winning solutions. Not only has their flagship solution Halogen eAppraisal(TM) been honored with top awards - Halogen eSuccession(TM), Halogen eCompensation(TM), and now Halogen eLearning Manager - have earned this prestigious distinction from Human Resource Executive Magazine. Halogen is focused on delivering innovative products that are "right to market" by addressing real-life requirements of organizations and HR professionals, as well as industry best practices.

Halogen eLearning Manager is the industry's first performance-based learning management system, which fully integrates learning with performance appraisals and other key talent management functions, giving users a truly seamless, closed loop experience and boosting their return on their talent management investment. Traditionally, performance management and learning management systems have been separate applications. As a result, learning management systems have not delivered on their promise to improve employee performance or drive the effective use of training resources, resulting in the broad user dissatisfaction reported by numerous research groups. Halogen's solution however, fully integrates learning and performance management in a tangible, practical way that's never been done before.

"Each year the quality and quantity of the entries for this award continue to grow," said David Shadovitz, editor in chief of Human Resource Executive(R). "Halogen eLearning Manager stands out because it delivers something truly unique, and is built on industry best practices. With this product, HR and learning have a tangible, practical way to integrate learning and performance management, and to drive ROI from training investments."

Halogen eLearning Manager is the first product to truly deliver on current best practices of fully integrating performance (normally managed by HR) and learning (normally managed by OD or Learning Managers) into a single, simple to use system that supports consistent, performance-driven development across the entire organization. Unlike stand alone LMS systems, Halogen's solution uses single workflow engine where all talent management related tasks are in a single user interface. Halogen's fully integrated performance based learning approach also provides shared competency libraries for both learning and performance management, and a single tool to help HR and learning leaders align, appraise, assess and develop their workforce. HR and learning managers have the power to easily manage and configure the system themselves to meet both talent and learning management requirements, without vendor or IT support.

"This award is a great recognition of our commitment to deliver simple to use products that address real customer needs and industry best practices, while delivering outstanding value to our customers," said Paul Loucks, President and CEO of Halogen Software. "Halogen has consistently been recognized by Human Resource Executive Magazine for each of its new modules in recent years. We are thrilled that Halogen eLearning Manager has been recognized for taking an innovative approach to solving a very real problem faced by HR and learning teams."

The prestigious Human Resource Executive Top Training Products award will be presented on the first day of the HR Technology Conference and Expo taking place in Chicago later this month. Each year the editorial staff of Human Resource Executive identifies those HR and training products that provide real value to the HR community. Specifically, judges look for innovative solutions that help HR and learning professionals successfully contribute to their organization's business goals.
