Cloud-based talent management leader earns recognition for investment in employee development, perks and benefits program and commitment to CSR
OTTAWA, March 12, 2015 /CNW/ - Halogen Software (TSX: HGN) has been recognized as one of Canada's Top 100 Small & Medium Employers for 2015 for fostering an exceptional workplace and applying forward-thinking human resource programs.
Now in its third year, Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers project evaluates employers on several criteria including physical and social workplace dynamics, benefits and vacation plans, performance management programs, employee development and training, and community involvement.
"Employee development and a culture of recognition are an integral part of Halogen's corporate culture because we know that our workforce is what builds our competitive advantage," said Dominique Jones, VP of Human Resources, Halogen Software. "We believe that our commitment to employees — in recognizing and appreciating the great work they do, and helping them grow and develop — has a positive impact on our customer focus and success."
The company's rapid workforce growth — a 26 percent increase in the past year — and its corporate and HR programs contributed to Halogen's recognition as an exceptional workplace. These programs include:
