Leading IT healthcare insurance solutions provider uses Halogen to improve
workforce planning and to support three-year strategic talent management

OTTAWA, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - A leading provider of healthcare insurance
IT solutions, NASCO, has selected Halogen's performance management, succession
planning and learning management solutions to support its three-year talent
management vision. Using Halogen's talent management solutions, NASCO aims to
gain efficiency, improve workforce planning and create a highly optimized
workforce by 2015.

NASCO's new talent management process with Halogen's solution makes
organizational alignment a priority. Individual employees are now creating
goals that tie directly into larger corporate goals, and associates are
engaged in managing their own performance and development.

"Thanks to Halogen's talent management solutions, we've been able to make
organizational alignment a reality. By ensuring associate goals are linked to
organizational imperatives, we're in a much better place to achieve our vision
as an organization," says Barbara Bell-Dees, Vice President, Human Resources &
People Services at NASCO.

Using Halogen's solutions NASCO is able to centralize its talent management
functions and data in one location. This ability coupled with the system's
ease of use, are among several reasons NASCO selected Halogen as its talent
management partner.

According to Bell-Dees, NASCO also chose Halogen because of the talent
management vendor's reputation for delivering world class customer service:
"It was comforting to know that we were choosing a company who is number one
in customer service. As an organization, we are committed to delivering world
class customer service and we selected Halogen because they share our values."

A cross-functional team selected and helped implement the Halogen eAppraisal™
Financial Services and Halogen eSuccession™ modules to ensure buy-in at all
levels of the organization and drive associate accountability in the process.
The team plans to roll out the Halogen eLearning Manager™ module to the
organization as the next phase of the implementation.

"We've been seeing a lot of 'ah ha' moments with our staff coming to us and
saying how easy and intuitive the system is to use," says Kim Ziprik, Manager,
Organizational Development at NASCO. "Halogen has been more than a vendor to
us; they've been a real business partner in our talent management journey. We
always feel heard and well served."

The Halogen Talent Management Suite™ is built from the ground up to drive
higher employee performance across all talent programs - whether that is
recruiting, performance management, learning and development, succession
planning or compensation.

All the modules in the suite integrate fully and seamlessly, providing a
consistent and intuitive experience for all users, while supporting
organizations in developing their human capital as a strategic, sustained
competitive advantage.
