Unique performance-based approach to learning supports EMQ FamiliesFirst's mission to help kids in crisis

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 12, 2011) -EMQ FamiliesFirst has leveraged Halogen Software's unique integrated approach to performance and learning management to boost employee engagement in the organization's training and development programs, and improve service delivery to children and families in crisis.

Performance management and training are top priorities for EMQ FamiliesFirst, to support both regulatory and employee development requirements. Halogen eAppraisal™ and Halogen eLearning Manager™ "allow employees to be more engaged in the process, and see how the alignment of their individual performance and development to organizational goals positively impacts their clients," said Sheryl Dagang, Manager of Learning and Development, EMQ FamiliesFirst.

Aside from being able to link learning with performance, EMQ FamiliesFirst required a talent management solution that was easy to administer and simple for staff to use, in order to drive adoption and support greater employee focus on development.

"Our training team needs to deliver value-added learning opportunities for employees to help them meet the challenges they face working with children and families in the field," explained Dagang. "We selected Halogen Software's talent management solution based on its integration of learning and performance. With the time we've saved and the value of online, performance-based learning, we are much more agile in meeting the learning needs of our staff so they can better serve children in crisis."

The solution has not only improved service delivery to EMQ FamiliesFirst clients, but has provided significant ROI for the organization. The HR and training departments have been able to achieve major cost savings by eliminating manual processes, and replacing in-class training with online training, where appropriate. In addition, learning partners in the organization are now able to focus on training impact versus tedious administration. The end result is an organization that is better able to respond to those in need.

Halogen Software's approach to learning management has garnered many product awards. Halogen eLearning Manager is currently helping over 200 organizations like EMQ FamiliesFirst improve staff performance and development by linking learning and performance.
