Our organization has used Halogen TalentSpace for 9 years as our goal management, feedback and performance management solution. We also use the learning module for managing training. The system configuration is simple and building processes and forms is fun. You can use the solution for more than just performance reviews - we use it for compliance sign-offs, coaching, individual development plans, compensation management, and more. The best part about Halogen is the world class customer service - they are simply the best out there!

Pros

Easy to configure, great tools for Outlook users makes feedback simple and easy, can integrate with other applications. It's as complete a solution as you can have for managing HR programs that isn't an HRIS system.

Cons

It's not an HRIS or payroll system so you need to integrate it with your other solutions.

Advice to Others

Utilize their customer success consulting services - they can really help you define your programs and build processes around them that make sense.

I like the fact that it's simple and straight forward (compared to other solutions that I worked with...).

I also like the fact that the vendor is very responsive and I never had to wait too long to get a straight answer to my questions.

I think the performance side could be improved specially when it comes to setting up goals and submitting them to the line manager. It should be more intuitive.

I enjoy working with this software because it is simple to use and any time I have a question, Halogen's Support Team responds quickly with the information that I request. Everyone I have worked with and spoken to have been friendly and very informative. I started in my position a year ago and was tasked with running a yearly appraisal process 2 months into my tenure. I was able to read the manual and develop the process very quickly and easily.

I don't like how the results are tied to a process, rather than a person. I've accidentally removed someone from a process and deleted their records because they're not tied to the individual.

If you have any questions, reach out to the support team. They're always there and always happy to help with any issues you have. Also, access the webinars and read through the manual. They both contain a lot of material that is helpful when using the software.

Halogen has an excellent staff all around including their terrific customer support team who is available 24/7!
Prior to using Halogen, I had no previous experience working with performance management systems but the implementation team was great and Halogen is so user-friendly that I was able to pick up on it quickly. It's a great system, especially the Performance module.
I also appreciate that you are assigned a continuous advancement consultant to assist with any post-implementation needs you have that are not appropriate to direct to their customer support team. Mine has been invaluable!

I love that they accept enhancement requests (and I've made plenty!), however it's a bit frustrating that there's no easy way to track the status of requests you've submitted so you've just left wondering if anything will ever come of them.

Test out the product beforehand and speak to current customers to get their perspective on it.

I would definitely recommend to those companies that are on a focal review date. It is nice to have all reviews stored in one place electronically and to be able to see where managers are in evaluating their staff.

Pros

I like the process of streamlining our performance evaluations, having them stored electronically, and being able to see where managers are in completing reviews for their staff.

Cons

I think that Halogen doesn't work great for companies who review on the anniversary date as opposed to focal.

One of the greatest features of Halogen/Saba is their people. The implementation team, the customer representatives, and the technical service support all make sure to answer every question to help in the best way possible in finding a solution to your problem.

Cons

Some of the administrator features are not as user friendly as the end user technology. I do find myself wishing for some additional customization features in how the forms and processes run. However, that being said, Halogen/Saba has always taken their client feedback into consideration and often will try to include the features you request in the last version roll-out. It looks promising that many of the things we would like to see could be part of a future version.

Our company has been trying to leverage Halogen over the last two years, and are finding many ways to find use the program. The customer service is really second to none. Anytime we have what seems like an easy or difficult questions a technician is always very responsive and helps to find a solution.

Pros

The ability for others to leave feedback is invaluable. Old performance management software only allowed supervision to leave notes about employee behavior, with this software all are able to do so. They can either give constructive feedback or recognition. It's impossible for a supervisor to be see everything, this way others are able to assist supervision in adequately evaluating their peers.

Cons

There are a lot of back door moves that need to be made to get certain evaluations up and going. I wish there were an easier way to assign quarterly and annual evaluations without having to individually do each one.

It has encouraged employees to do better do to the fact that others can recognize them for their efforts. I have heard employees comment on how good it felt to receive feedback. You can really see a change in their work habits.

Pros

The ability for anyone to leave feedback for any employee no matter if they are a supervisor or a line employee. Due to the fact that others can recognize you for great service, it gives supervision a better picture of what kind of employee they have. It really does open the door for better communication between supervision and staff.

Cons

Our agency ran into some issues where there are multiple supervisors per team, and all should have the ability to leave supervisor notes, feedback, etc. for each employee and initially were unable to do so. With the addition of secondary supervisors, we were able to solve that problem, but it did take some time and assistance from customer support.

Halogen has the best customer service I have ever had the pleasure of working with-Hands down. They are knowledgeable, quick and efficient and so pleasant. The site is intuitive and good looking. The employees love that we moved from a computer based program to a web based program as most of our staff work out of the office/in their patrol vehicles. Feedback central is the best thing ever. It has completely shifted our culture from performance evaluation to performance management.

Cons

Halogen is a bit bulky on the back end for law enforcement specific items. We have very specific procedures that required Halogen to develop some work arounds for us. Even still there are some things that we need that Halogen just cannot do yet. However, they are constantly updating so we are hoping they integrate some of our wish list into future updates.

Halogen is only good if you have a dedicated staff to manage and administer. It is very heavy on administration and requires a great deal of time. If your company does have a dedicated staff for appraisals, then you don¿t need Halogen. They promised many things during the sales consultation. After signing up, a box full of large manuals came through. That was the first indication of the challenge using the software. After initial training, there is a lack of support. After repeatedly raising concerns for an SME, they repeatedly asked the same questions. No answers or support were given. Currently, they are not even answering customer emails even though we are a current paying customer with services still under contract. If they had an office in Hong Kong, our company would sue them for misrepresenting their services.

Pros

The user interface is pleasantly designed.

Cons

Set-up takes weeks. Ongoing admin and new appraisals take lots of time. Needs a full time staff to administer.

Advice to Others

If you are a company of less than 50 employees (and perhaps 100), you would need one good employee to regularly use this software. Given that, the same employee would have the time to plan and initiate staff appraisals without the use of this software, thereby saving the company tens of thousands of dollars. This system was supposed to lessen administration. Instead it has been a huge burden that our company finally had to abandon even with over 6 months of contracted services still paid for.

Halogen was a replacement for a previous program which was no longer compatible with our software upgrades. It was a bit more expensive than some of the other options we looked at but it was far superior to its competition. It took quite some time to build, only because we wanted to build all of our evaluation processes before launching (This is not necessary). However, it was worth the time and made us all more comfortable with the software. It could be a smidge more customizable but they are constantly updating and changing. The customer service is absolutely out of this world. They are prompt and friendly! Great product with great service!

Pros

It is cloud based which is fantastic and the customer service is incredible. It is also user friendly and has a great look!

Cons

It is on the more expensive side and it could be a bit more customizable for our specific needs but not enough to dissuade me.

Advice to Others

The build time can be a bit much if you really want to get detailed.

We use the Performance Management module of Halogen, and it's been a hugely successful upgrade from our previous, paper-based system. I am the administrator and came in with no Halogen experience; within a week I was administering, with help from the support team. Which is key: Halogen has great support and they will work with you to get the system to do what you need it to do.

Pros

Not only easy to use but also easy to learn.
Very customizable.
Support comes in a variety of forms so you can choose which is best for your problem, learning style, or training audience.
Encourages yearlong engagement with performance management through editable goals and supervisor/employee relationships.

Cons

I wish the coding for forms was a little less confusing. Some of the buttons for that (and the processes themselves, only not quite as much for those) are counterintuitive and require more try-it-and-see than I'd like.

Advice to Others

Have a clear-cut integration and training plan specified to your company going in. It's got great support for any way you want to do it.

Halogen has made a huge difference for this organization. We have been here for 51 years and there has never been any evaluations done, ever. This something new to the majority of the people here. It is a wonderful learning experience for them. It is about time that they be evaluated and find out how they can make changes in some of the things they are doing in their current positions. Halogen is the best tool for this job.

Pros

Easy to use and understand.

Cons

We have people without computers, so that is an issue. They would like to be able to do it on paper.

Advice to Others

I would definitely recommend it. Everyone is so helpful while you are going through the training process and then the Halogen support team couldn't be better. They really know what they are doing and are always so helpful and they send you an email with what they helped you with and what was done.

Our law enforcement agency began using Halogen less than a year ago. Our old performance management system was archaic and very had very bulky maintenance for Human Resources. Halogen has brought us into the new age and has provided tremendous support to get us up and running. I spent about 6 months learning about Halogen and working with an implementation consultant to ensure that the software was customized to best suit our needs. In addition to our customizing the software, we were provided with testimonials from other clients and given tips and tricks from Halogen to best encourage user adoption from our employees. The Halogen culture of customers and support is extremely easy to access and helpful.

Pros

Feedback to document employees performance year long, not just was evaluation time. This has increased transparency with our employees and supervisors.

Customization of the forms and processes

Ease of connecting with other customers and support

Cons

Has proven to have some limitations for our law enforcement agency. Building out competencies and forms was very labor intensive because there was not a variety of pre-built law enforcement competencies (officer safety etc.). That said, some of the competencies in the Halogen Library were able to be used after being manipulated.

From the beginning, Halogen has been easy to work with. When our agency decided to purchase the Performance Module we were quickly set up with an Implementation Consultant that delivered on everything we threw at her. Being a law enforcement agency, there were occasional struggles with our to best build our performance management with the software. We were always given plenty of options to customize the our changes in the control center. This, in return, benefitted our agency and made Halogen meet our agency requirements while enhancing the way we managed performance with our staff.

Halogen Talent Management software is something I have been using for 5 years now. Halogen continues to refine the way performance reviews are completed by creating many opportunities for employee engagement. Whether it is goal setting, reviews, or just a "way to go" message, the Halogen dashboard makes it quick and easy to keep in touch with employees.

Pros

Halogen customer services can't be beat. Representatives take ownership of your problem and stays with it until the end. Not once have I felt bad for calling about something I forgot how to do. Always soliciting feedback (pun intended) from their users on new features or enhancements.

Cons

Need to increase the dialogue between users by adding user group webinars/meetings based on industry - ours being professional services has some unique reporting structures.
