February 25, 2016 – Ottawa, ON and San Mateo, CA – Two leaders in talent management — Halogen Software (TSX:HGN) and Jobvite — today announced that Halogen will integrate and resell the Jobvite Platform with the Halogen TalentSpace™ suite.
As part of the strategic partnership, Halogen’s customers will benefit from a tight integration between the solutions that creates a streamlined and efficient employee lifecycle process, including Jobvite’s comprehensive, analytics-driven recruiting platform, which accelerates talent acquisition by:
- Removing friction for candidates and hiring teams to accelerate and optimize every step of the recruiting process;
- Leveraging CV databases, online professional profiles, and hundreds of other sources to build—and continuously refine—a robust pipeline of qualified prospects;
- Tapping into all employees’ networks to reach more targeted groups of candidates and enabling everyone at the company to source talent.
“Our mission is to help our customers win with talent. To do so, they need to be able to attract and recruit their unfair share of top talent quickly, as well as engage and retain their top performers,” says Les Rechan, President and CEO, Halogen Software. “Our partnership with Jobvite supports this mission. Jobvite leads the industry with a comprehensive social and analytics-driven recruiting platform, making them an ideal partner to help us deliver more value than ever to our large customer base.”
“We believe that attracting and retaining top talent is the most important factor that fuels company growth, making it the ultimate competitive advantage. Recruiting high-quality candidates and seamlessly onboarding new employees is mission-critical, but truly successful companies take it one step further by supporting the growth and development of their people and creating a high-performance culture that keeps them there,” says Dan Finnigan, Chief Executive Officer for Jobvite. “That’s where Halogen comes in. They are transforming performance and talent management practices, and we’re already impressed with the momentum and amount of interest we’re seeing from Halogen prospects and customers in a combined solution.”
Because the Jobvite platform will be integrated with the Halogen suite, customers can take advantage of additional, powerful capabilities in Halogen TalentSpace to ensure the right candidate is placed in the right role with the right resources for personal success and business impact.
“Some of the most pressing issues that mid-sized companies like ours face are attracting, developing, and retaining top talent,” said Tracy White, accounting firm Clark Nuber’s Director of Human Resources. “Clark Nuber’s people are our biggest investment, and our biggest competitive differentiator. We use Jobvite to recruit the best talent, and we use Halogen to assess, develop and retain the best and nurture a high-performance culture – both are critical to how we achieve our business outcomes.”
