Halogen's talent management solutions support innovation, creativity and
competitive advantage for electronics leader

OTTAWA, Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Sony Canada has selected Halogen
Software's talent management solutions to help the company achieve its
long-term vision for employee development. Using Halogen's employee
performance, job description and learning management modules, Sony Canada has
linked performance and development to build a world class workforce across its
electronics and mobile divisions and its retail stores.

The connection between talent management and business success is clear to
Sony. "People drive innovation; and for our organization it's entrenched in
our strategy and seen as a source of sustainable competitive advantage," says
Bethany Kopstick, Human Resources Consultant, Sony Canada. "We selected
Halogen because we quickly saw how they could support our organizational goals
and the development of our people."

Kopstick adds that as older employees retire, Sony is placing priority on
developing its talent from within to boost engagement and job satisfaction.
Sony Canada's leadership believes the best way to achieve this goal is through
the continuous development of its workforce. Halogen was selected because of
the powerful integration between its performance and learning modules.

In support of its strategic vision for employee development, Sony Canada has
used Halogen to map five core competencies into the organization's job
descriptions and its employee performance management processes. Using the
tightly integrated Halogen eAppraisal™, Halogen Job Description Builder™, and
Halogen eLearning Manager™ modules gives Sony Canada a complete view of each
employee. This helps leaders assess job fit, competency development, measures
of success, and training needs. Managers can readily address areas for
improvement via integrated development planning tools and fingertip access to
assign learning activities.

"Our implementation was incredibly smooth — and every step of the way,
Halogen's support was amazing. We now have the tools and confidence we need to
advance our talent management journey, and it's all so simple to use," says

The solution has been very well received by executives, employees and
managers, according to Kopstick. "Everyone likes that it provides a holistic
view of an employee with easy-to-understand reporting and visuals. We can see
right away where we need to build the organization and where we need to
develop talent."

"In just a short amount of time, we've seen some major wins with talent
management, thanks to Halogen," Kopstick summed up. "We see them as a
long-term partner in our success."
