Saba Delivers Anywhere, Anytime Coaching and Feedback with New Halogen Mobile App

  (June 19, 2017)

Notifications provide users with helpful tips and suggestions on how to give and receive effective feedback

REDWOOD SHORES, CA, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Saba, a global leader in cloud-based intelligent talent management solutions, today launched the Halogen« mobile app, its latest innovation in employee coaching and collaboration. The Halogen mobile app brings ongoing performance practices to managers and employees anywhere, at any time, facilitating in-the-moment feedback, recognition, coaching tips, development ideas and the ability to add one-on-one meeting agenda topics from a smartphone.

The Halogen mobile app offers a new people-centric experience that enables individuals to take ownership of their performance. Employees can quickly find colleagues and then share feedback and coaching anytime, anywhere. The Halogen app captures content from email, pictures, chat, articles - and more! - and notifies employees when feedback has been received. Employees can also read tips and suggestions to help build feedback-sending habits. (CNW Group/Saba Software Inc.)

"Instead of thinking about ditching the annual performance review, organizations need to shift the way evaluations are done to meet the needs of their employees," said Michael Rochelle, Chief Strategy Officer and Principal Analyst at Brandon Hall Group. "Employees want to have conversations about their performance and development on a regular basis delivered as a 'just in time, just for me, just the way I want it' experience. Technology like Saba-Halogen can help businesses provide more frequent feedback and coaching conversations to employees, and gain more value from the performance evaluation process along the way."

The app is an extension of the Halogen TalentSpace suite, which is now a part of Saba's expanded talent management solution set. The app lets users instantly capture content from email, pictures, chat, and articles to share as part of their performance conversations with anyone in the organization. More so, the app improves both manager and employee capability in delivering and receiving feedback with recommended approaches, reminders and self-reflection tips.

"Progressive organizations want to create environments where ongoing feedback and development is part of the culture. Capturing that feedback is obviously important, but improving the way it's delivered and received is crucial to engagement," said David Mennie, Vice President, Product Marketing and Strategy at Saba. "We're addressing that last mile of performance and engagement by putting both 'the what' and 'the how' of feedback and recognition into the hands of users wherever they are, whenever they want to share it, in a familiar consumer format."

Feedback, recognition and development tips collected through the mobile app are instantly synchronized with employee records in the TalentSpace suite and can be included as part of ongoing check-ins, development conversations, and talent assessments. The solution provides HR and business leaders the ability to use this type of ongoing employee performance data to get a complete picture of organizational performance.

Media and analysts attending the SHRM Annual Conference & Exposition from June 18-21 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans can visit booth #1521 to view a demonstration of Halogen mobile and experience the latest solutions from Saba-Halogen for driving employee performance, learning, and engagement.
