Jobvite and TalentWise Team Up to Help Texas Tornado Victims

Social Recruiting and Employee Screening Companies Pledge to Donate to the Red Cross Disaster Relief Efforts and Invite Other Companies to Follow Suit

BURLINGAME, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 5, 2012) - Jobvite, the leading recruitment platform for the social Web, and TalentWise, a leading Hiring Process Management (HPM) solutions provider, today pledged to make a joint donation to the Red Cross Disaster Relief Efforts in the wake of this week's series of tornadoes in Texas. Executives from both companies are currently in Dallas for a Jobvite social recruiting event and are calling on other companies and individuals to help the victims in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

"Regardless of what region of the country you're in, natural disasters such as these impact all of us and it's important to help the families in North Texas recover from the recent tornadoes," said Dan Finnigan, CEO, Jobvite. "We're proud to join with our partner, TalentWise, and donate to the Red Cross to help these families get back on their feet and return the communities in the Dallas-Fort Worth area back to normal as soon as possible."

Individuals and companies can make a donation to The Red Cross Disaster Relief Efforts via their web site. The Red Cross has opened three shelters in North Texas and also has a Safe & Wellness Index on their site to help anyone find someone who may have been displaced during the recent tornadoes. Anyone can also text "REDCROSS" to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Other agencies offering opportunities to donate or volunteer to help the recent tornado victims include -- The Salvation Army, The United Way of Texas, The Volunteer Center of North Texas, and Samaritan's Purse.

"It's truly disheartening to be here and see some of the damage from the tornadoes first hand and the impact on the families in this region," said Bill Glenn, Vice President, Marketing and Alliances, TalentWise. "We are proud to join with Jobvite in supporting the relief efforts in the North Texas community, as they rebuild from this devastating natural disaster, and ask other companies and individuals to do the same."
