HireVue and Kenexa Team to Offer Integrated Recruiting and Interview Management

Details Available During This Week's Kenexa World Conference

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Oct 10, 2011) - HireVue, providers of an amazing new way to interview -- on demand, today announced that they have partnered with Kenexa, a global provider of business solutions for human resources, to provide mutual customers with a pre-integrated interview and recruiting management solution.

Under the new partnership, HireVue's Digital Interview Platform™ and On Demand Digital Interviews™ will be pre-integrated with Kenexa 2x BrassRing™ to provide recruiters with single sign-on access to both platforms. Scheduled for release this November, the solutions will directly synchronize to streamline processes and reduce administration. For example, candidate information added to one platform will automatically populate to other portions of the combined solution. Recruiters will also be able to order HireVue's breakthrough On Demand Digital Interviews directly from Kenexa 2x BrassRing and, once completed, a link to the interview will be stored to the candidate's profile.

"Our customers are always seeking ways to gain a competitive edge when recruiting. HireVue's On Demand Digital Interviews save recruiters countless hours and dollars previously spent interviewing candidates that are not the right fit for an organization," noted Rudy Karsan, CEO of Kenexa. "We're thrilled to add value to our customers' investments by integrating with HireVue's Digital Interview Platform. Regardless of the interview method, recruiters will have strategic control over the entire interview process -- from scheduling screenings to making hiring decisions."

Mark Newman, CEO of HireVue, added, "Kenexa shares our mission to change the way companies find, identify and interact with candidates. Its industry-leading solution delivers a unified talent record across the employment lifecycle, linking recruitment, outsourcing, performance management and mobility on one technology platform. Now hiring companies can combine the power of HireVue and have the insight provided by Kenexa 2x BrassRing at their fingertips."

"Recruiting is as challenging today as it ever has been. What has changed is how much more we leverage technology to find the best-fit candidates," said Mike Grennier, senior director, Corporate Recruiting, Walmart. "I'm excited that HireVue and Kenexa's platforms will be talking to each other to help us source and evaluate candidates more effectively."

"The Conference of Grown-up Dreams" will take place Tuesday, October 11 and Wednesday, October 12 at Walt Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
