Ottowa, ON (PRWEB) February 3, 2009
Students in the Human Resource Development Masters program at the Rochester Institute of Technology are using Halogen Software this quarter as part of the graduate program’s innovative Leveraging Technology course. The software is being used to provide students with hands-on experience with talent management technology, and to put key concepts into context. The course covers a wide variety of technology relevant to HR professionals, with a specific focus on talent management systems and collaboration/social software.
The hands-on application of talent management systems enables the students to see how the automation of key functions such as appraisals, compensation adjustments and succession planning relieves the administrative burden typically faced by HR professionals and provides them with actionable intelligence around employee performance, development and talent. The practical application of the theories learned in the program through Halogen’s talent management systems brings concepts to life and better equips HR professionals with the best practices and technology know-how to be successful in their field.
“Today’s and tomorrow’s HR leaders need a firm grasp of technologies that support and transform the HR function,” said Steve Boese, Adjunct Instructor, Rochester Institute of Technology. “The Halogen suite has been incredibly easy to setup in our classroom environment and is proving invaluable.

“As a professional already working in the HR field, this hands-on experience with a tool that supports HR practices has been very valuable,” said Teri Odom, HR Manager at Reflexite, and graduate student in Human Resource Development Masters program. “Putting theory to practice using the software in a real-world scenario provides a more well-rounded approach to HR and a strong understanding of how technology is a key enabler for our profession.”
