NASCO Makes Organizational Alignment a Reality with Halogen Software 
Leading IT healthcare insurance solutions provider uses Halogen to improve 
workforce planning and to support three-year strategic talent management 
roadmap 
OTTAWA, Jan. 6, 2014 /CNW/ - 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."
