Salary.com Named a Total Customer Satisfaction Leader for Talent Management Software

Leads in Product, Implementation and Overall Customer Satisfaction in Bersin & Associates' Study

NEEDHAM, MA--(Marketwire - December 21, 2009) - Salary.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: SLRY), a leading provider of on-demand talent management, payroll and compensation solutions, today announced it was named a total satisfaction leader in Bersin & Associates' recent study, "Talent Management Systems Customer Satisfaction 2010."

Salary.com was the only company named a leader in total implementation satisfaction for midmarket customers. In addition, Salary.com was identified among the leaders in the following categories:

--  Total satisfaction leader
--  Total product satisfaction measures
--  Total business partnership
--  Willingness to be a reference to other companies
    

The Bersin & Associates report is the first of an annual series on customer satisfaction with talent management software. The research focuses on product, vendor and implementation factors that drive success with talent management systems. A comprehensive survey was distributed to thousands of companies, and Bersin & Associates conducted interviews with more than 50 buyers and owners of talent management systems. Approximately 500 individual organizations responded during the second and third calendar quarters of 2009 and provided information on more than 900 implementations.

Bersin & Associates measured total product satisfaction by soliciting user responses regarding functionality, performance, usability and configurability. Total implementation satisfaction was determined based on responses regarding consulting support and data integration.

"These results cap an impressive year for Salary.com," said Josh Bersin, president, Bersin & Associates.
