Top American CPA firm uses Halogen to support stronger communication between managers and employees
OTTAWA, Aug. 22, 2016 /CNW/ - Halogen Software (TSX: HGN) announced today that leading certified public accounting and advisory firm Doeren Mayhew is using the Halogen Performance™ solution to support project-based reviews, giving employees the timely and continuous feedback they need to develop and succeed.
Founded in 1932, Doeren Mayhew's commitment to client service has made it an award-winning, top 100 CPA firm. The company uses project-based reviews to keep its people aligned while serving the needs of its clients.
"Our employees often work on different teams and report to different engagement managers to serve our clients," says Dan Hamann, Human Resource Director, Doeren Mayhew. "With Halogen we can use project-based reviews to collect insight from multiple engagements so our managers and team leads are informed on how their employees are performing."
This access to real-time feedback not only supports stronger communication between managers and employees, it also provides an opportunity to reflect on what went well, what can be improved and lessons learned.
"The conversations that take place with project-based reviews help our company to reinforce the importance of client service which of course impacts client retention and revenue growth," says Hamann. "These are key areas of focus for our organization."
Hamann adds that feedback and performance insights collected through project-based reviews are easily centralized within the Halogen system. As a result, managers have the information needed to coach employees during one-on-one conversations as well as during year-end employee reviews.
"The information is centralized and accessible to the manager and to the employee, which means reviews are a conversation centered on development activities that move the employee and our organization forward."
