Integrated Group Switches to Kenexa Prove It!® to Assess Candidate Skills

Leading Australian Staffing Agency Partners With Kenexa to Meet the Differing Needs of Its Clients

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - October 27, 2008) - Kenexa® (NASDAQ: KNXA), a leading provider of recruitment and retention solutions, today announced that it has been selected by Integrated Group, one of Australia's largest staffing agencies, to be its sole skills assessment provider.

Headquartered in Perth, Australia, Integrated Group has offices throughout Australia and specialises in the recruitment of all personnel, from entry-level roles to executive placements across a variety of industries. The company manages the needs of clients and candidates who seek opportunities in commercial, construction, food processing, industrial, logistical, mining, and transportation industries and will use Kenexa Prove It!® skills assessments to assess candidates applying for both permanent and temporary positions.

Tom Parker, general manager, operations at Integrated Group, said, "The success of the Integrated Group is built on our long-standing, dynamic relationships with our clients. It is not something we take for granted. Similarly, we look for suppliers who understand this and look to maintain the same ethos with their clients. Kenexa Prove It! ably demonstrates this. Part of the Integrated Group's philosophy is recognising that all clients have different needs. Our previous skills testing system was not akin to this. The Kenexa Prove It! range of tests is extensive and allows us to meet the differing needs of our clients."

Kenexa Prove It! includes more than 900 validated assessments for clerical, software, call centre, behavioural, financial, healthcare, industrial and technical job classifications.

John Valenti, Kenexa's global practice leader for skills assessment, said, "I am excited that one of Australia's largest staffing organisations has switched to Kenexa Prove It!. Integrated Group has an envied reputation for their rigorous processes in identifying candidates that best suit the needs of their clients. It is a privilege for us to have been selected to serve as their chosen assessment partner."
