Halogen Software today announced a partnership with the Association for Accounting Administration (AAA). This partnership provides the association's more than 900 members access to best practice HR resources and special purchase terms for Halogen's award-winning Talent Management Suite for professional services.
Retaining top performers and developing new leadership is a top priority for accounting firms. According to McKinsey & Company, firms that are developing their talent management practice are set to see 22 percent greater returns than those who are not. As a result, more and more firms are adopting a "talent mind-set," recognizing and investing in their human capital to develop new leadership and maintain a competitive edge.
AAA member firm Warren Averett O'Sullivan Creel is a long-time Halogen Software customer and has been able to drive significant return on investment from its talent management programs, including saving more than 400 billable hours annually, reducing turnover, and improving goal alignment.
"Our firm is a multiyear recipient of Florida Trend's Best Companies to Work For in Florida designation, and late last year, we were recognized as one of the 2011 Best Accounting Firms to Work For by Accounting Today," said Kathy Anthony, PHR and CEO of Warren Averett O'Sullivan Creel. "Halogen Software has played a major role in making talent management a top priority at our firm, and our ongoing commitment to enhance our team members' performance and development has created value for everyone involved."
With Halogen eAppraisal professional services, accounting firms and other professional services organizations can improve attraction and retention, identify skills gaps, and drive significant savings in billable hours spent on talent management related tasks. As needed, firms can license additional modules to automate compensation management, 360-degree feedback, succession planning, recruitment, job descriptions, and learning management.
