Talent management leader Halogen Software continues to gain traction with strong uptake of the company's module for job description management. Halogen Job Description Builder™ is the first and only solution to link job descriptions to all other talent management functions and provide a formal workflow for their creation, sign off and centralization. Since the release of Halogen Job Description Builder the offering has quickly become one of the company's top selling modules across all industries.

Talent management best practices recognize that job descriptions form a critical foundation for effectively managing employee performance. Employees must know their job responsibilities and clearly understand what's expected of them. This tight linking ensures HR is able to clearly communicate a consistent set of requirements and expectations to employees, fostering not only high performance, but also unified organizational culture and values.

Healthcare organizations in particular have found great value in Halogen's newest module.

"With Halogen Job Description Builder, we can integrate position descriptions into our performance management process," explained Pam Brown, Director of Human Resources, Carle Foundation. "This functionality makes it easier to tie descriptions to our core competencies, many of which are set by The Joint Commission. As a result, we are creating outcome-based job descriptions that better reflect performance expectations for all of our employees."

Halogen Job Description Builder not only ensures every employee has a clear understanding of their current job responsibilities, it does what no other job profile tool can: it is the only solution to seamlessly link job descriptions and their associated competency information to other talent management processes, including job requisitions, performance appraisals, learning and development activities and succession planning.

"Job descriptions are a fundamental building block of our talent management processes, so it is critical that they are consistent and can be easily updated," said Andrea Resnik, HR Manager, Fairbanks Hospital. "Halogen Job Description Builder helps to alleviate the administrative burden of job descriptions and turns them into a strategic tool that enables our hospital to ensure goals and competencies are clearly articulated to employees. This offering is proof of Halogen's commitment to meeting actual customer needs and delivering outstanding value."
