Halogen Software today announced a new talent management solution that makes it easier for hospitality companies to support a culture of high performance, ongoing development and commitment to high-quality service – all while saving significant time and money. Halogen's Talent Management Suite for Hospitality is designed to meet the specialized performance management needs of organizations ranging from hotels and casinos to food services and amusement parks.

To deliver quality service, the hospitality industry must attract and retain competent, enthusiastic, and accountable staff, and place a focus on high performance. However, organizations in this sector have historically experienced high rates of turnover because staff receive little training and development, leading to employee dissatisfaction and attrition. Halogen's latest talent management suite helps address these problems by providing organizations in the hospitality sector with a proven and powerful tool to help retain staff and improve employee satisfaction by focusing on performance, development and goal alignment. 

"Since implementing Halogen eAppraisal at our organization over two years ago we have been able to include all of our staff across the resort and casino as part of our strategic approach to talent management," said Tony Chartrand, Vice President of Human Resources, Pechanga Resort & Casino. "Subsequently, we've seen real business results with lower turnover and better alignment. Every single employee has a clear picture of what is expected of them, which helps to ensure we're delivering customers with the best service in the industry."

Halogen's Talent Management Suite for Hospitality delivers organizations with a complete approach to meet all of their talent management needs from onboarding to appraisals, and pay for performance to succession planning. The suite includes a comprehensive library of industry specific competencies and appraisal forms, hundreds of built-in coaching and development tips and comment helpers, as well as 10 pre-packaged industry specific e-learning courses from SkillSoft. Additionally, the tight integration between Halogen eLearning Manager and Halogen eAppraisal Hospitality enables organizations to place a focus on ongoing employee training and development as part of an overall talent management strategy. Halogen's Talent Management Suite for the Hospitality is now available.

"In the hospitality industry, the quality of your staff and the services they provide directly impacts the bottom line. Employee performance is what drives competitive advantage in this industry," said Donna Ronayne, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Halogen Software. "We developed this suite for the hospitality industry to help these organizations attract, develop and retain competent, enthusiastic and accountable employees, and keep them engaged and motivated – all while saving significant time and money."
