Leading regional Australian bank uses Halogen talent management solutions to link performance with development for long-term competitive advantage
Ottawa, ON – February 18, 2014 – The Bank of Queensland (BOQ), a leading regional Australian bank, has selected Halogen’s talent management solutions to link learning and performance, and plan for succession. The Halogen solution supports the Bank’s strategic imperative to competitively differentiate itself based on talent and a commitment to customer service excellence.
Prior to using Halogen, BOQ had a number of disparate talent management processes, which prevented the Bank from having a holistic view of employees’ performance and development needs.
“We had a number of systems and platforms that weren’t connected or sharing information. We had segmented views of each employee when what we really needed was an organizational view,” says Ben Tilley, Head of Performance and Operations at BOQ. “Halogen’s truly integrated system is giving us that global view we’ve been looking for, which is allowing us to better track employee development, and align our workforce to our organizational goals.”
BOQ is using Halogen to support organizational alignment by ensuring individual employee goals are connected to company objectives. The result is greater clarity around performance expectations and improved transparency, which supports the organization’s culture of accountability.
Ongoing employee development is critical to the Bank’s ability to deliver on its value proposition. Halogen is helping the leadership team, the human resources team and front line managers at BOQ to identify employee development needs, support career progression and create a more direct link between performance and development. In addition, employees are being empowered to take charge of their own development.
According to Tilley, part of what was appealing about Halogen was its focus on building long-term relationships with customers, which aligns with the Bank’s customer-focused culture. The Halogen solution’s easy-to-use interface and flexibility were also key drivers in the selection process.
“The flexibility of Halogen’s offering allows us to easily combine and change processes, which will help us accomplish some significant things from a business point of view,” says Tilley.
BOQ has implemented the Halogen eAppraisal™ and Halogen eSuccession™ modules and plans to roll out the Halogen eLearning Manager™ module this year.
The Halogen TalentSpace™ 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 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.
