Banner, the parent company of Banner Bank, has selected Halogen Software, a provider of employee performance and talent management applications, to streamline the employee performance appraisal process and integrate learning into its talent management process.
According to the Halogen, the new web-based system will enable Banner to automate the employee appraisal process driving consistency across the organization. Learning functions, such as compliance training, will be tied into the appraisal process, and information from appraisals will be used for succession planning purposes, thereby creating a complete talent management strategy across all its locations in the Northwest.
Banner is starting with a deployment of Halogen eAppraisal Financial Services and Multi-Rater for employee performance management and plans to build on the implementation with fully integrated Halogen eSuccession and eLMS modules.
Mimi Ellis, senior vice president of talent management of Banner, said: Our number one priority was to improve our learning management processes, and we quickly realized that for this to work, it was critical that we establish a tight link between employee performance, talent management and learning functions. We really did our homework and selected Halogen based on the fact that it would meet all of our current and future talent management needs.
