OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 19, 2013) - SentriLock, LLC, a growing manufacturing company that is the official lockbox provider of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), has selected the Halogen eAppraisal™ Manufacturing, Halogen eRecruitment™, and Halogen Job Description Builder™ modules to help it build, engage and retain a high-performance workforce.
As a company that provides exceptional customer service and manufactures lockboxes that are innovative, reliable, and easy to use, SentriLock wanted a talent management solution with the same qualities. The young, Ohio-based business is growing rapidly. However, its former system for performance management - using Excel spreadsheets and inconsistent job descriptions - was inaccurate, hard to update and time-consuming.
"Our previous process left our managers spending too much time on administrative tasks rather than on activities that support employee engagement and performance," said Josue Silva, HR Specialist, SentriLock, LLC. "They needed more time to provide employees with valid, constructive, and relevant feedback."
SentriLock's goal was to find a talent management solution that would help it foster a more feedback-rich culture. After testing multiple products, the SentriLock HR team found that the Halogen eAppraisal Manufacturing module-designed for the unique needs of manufacturing companies-provided the best solution. SentriLock valued Halogen's easy-to-use, intuitive interface and the powerful and consistent integration between all the products in the suite. The SentriLock team was especially impressed with the Halogen Feedback Central™ feature, which provides employees with real time performance feedback that flows directly into an official performance review.
To support the new employee review process, SentriLock chose the Halogen Job Description Builder module to manage and link job descriptions to employee performance. "This means an accountant is no longer reviewed on the same criteria as an IT employee," said Silva. "Halogen has allowed SentriLock to accomplish what would have been nearly impossible to do before - to provide employees with powerful, job-specific performance reviews."
With an eye on continued growth, SentriLock is also relying on the Halogen eRecruitment module to ensure recruiting activities are aligned to its strategic goals and talent processes. "Recruiting had traditionally been siloed from our other talent programs, making it difficult to align talent acquisition to our company's strategic objectives," said Silva. "Our new recruiting solution is another example of how Halogen is helping our company focus less on administrative work and more on finding great talent."
The Halogen eRecruitment module helps SentriLock maintain a "dashboard" for all recruiting efforts, including its revamped career website, and well-defined process steps between the HR team and hiring managers.
"Our executive and management teams love using Halogen. We're making smarter decisions about who to hire, who to promote and how to improve the performance of our people. Our HR team has recognized its powerful potential and we feel that as new Halogen users, we are barely scratching the surface of the potential of this product," said Silva.
