Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, 2013/07/29 - Exclusive agreement makes world’s most popular personality assessment simple to leverage across all talent programs - HalogenSoftware.com. TSX: HGN
Halogen Software, a leading provider of cloud based talent management solutions, and CPP, Inc., the Myers-Briggs® company, today announced an exclusive reseller partnership to integrate CPP’s MBTI®Complete into the Halogen Talent Management Suite™. For the first time, organizations will be able to access their employees’ personality insights through a talent management suite and use this data to improve coaching, communication and collaboration across the organization and within various talent processes.
Studies show that aligning skills, behaviors and personality styles with business strategy is critical to improving organizational performance.1 Often however, personality assessments are filed away, or provide value to only a limited set of people within the organization because the insight is not broadly shared. Integrating MBTI assessment results into the Halogen Talent Management Suite overcomes this challenge, allowing the personality-based insights to be easily retained and shared among users. Using the insights from these assessments across the organization’s talent programs can help foster improved understanding, communication and productivity.
“MBTI is a well adopted model to assess personality, used widely to help employees understand how to work well together,” said Josh Bersin, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and Founder, Bersin by Deloitte. “By embedding the Myers Briggs assessment and type descriptions into talent management software, companies can easily and efficiently help their employees understand how to work better together, build better teams, and create more effective leaders.”
Because all the modules in the Halogen Talent Management Suite (halogensoftware.com) are built from the ground up to work together seamlessly, the integration of MBTI assessment insights into the talent lifecycle is particularly powerful and intuitive for the user. Here are some examples of how the integration touch points can support high performance, and enrich collaboration and communication all within one talent management user experience.
• Better performance and self-awareness: Enhance collaboration and teamwork across the organization by helping employees understand their own tendencies and preferences and how to best work with other personality types.
• Improved coaching skills: Help managers become more effective at communicating performance feedback by taking into consideration their employees’ personality types.
• Enhanced leadership development: Help managers build their leadership competencies, ensuring employees are more motivated, productive, and satisfied.
• Broader succession planning: Develop talent pools by leveraging employee strengths and complementing development gaps to meet future leadership demands.
• Improved learning programs: Use assessment data to recommend courses based on an employee’s identified development opportunities.
