Kenexa CEO Rudy Karsan to Discuss His New Book "WE" on This Week's Bill Kutik Radio Show®

Karsan Shares His Insights on How Employers and Employees Together Drive Engagement

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwire - February 28, 2011) - Kenexa (NASDAQ: KNXA), a global provider of business solutions for human resources, announced today that Rudy Karsan, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Kenexa, will be the featured guest on this week's The Bill Kutik Radio Show.

The Bill Kutik Radio Show is a bi-weekly online talk show hosted by Bill Kutik, a leading independent analyst in the HR technology marketplace. Produced by Knowledge Infusion, the show features unedited and unrehearsed conversations with some of the industry's key thought leaders, including executives from leading technology providers.

On Wednesday's show, Karsan will share insights from "We: How to Increase Performance and Profits through Full Engagement," his new best-seller. In 'We,' Karsan and co-author Kevin Kruse, CEO of Krū Research, explore the changing nature of jobs, how employers can overcome recession-led employee disengagement and why employees are now more responsible than ever for their own job satisfaction. The human resources and business experts cite intensive research findings from more than 10 million annual global work surveys and company case studies, and identify three essential elements that keep employees engaged and productive -- pay, purpose and passion. 

"It's amazing that CEO Rudy Karsan runs a public company and still reads two books a week. Now he's finally co-authored one, complete with a website full of videos, tests, and supplemental written material. Book 2.0," said technology columnist, Kutik. "His topic could not be more timely in our current jobless recovery: How employees and employers can get fully engaged -- again."

Kenexa studies human behavior and team dynamics in the workplace, and using software solutions, content and services, helps organizations improve business outcomes through human resources. Under Karsan's leadership, Kenexa has received multiple awards of recognition including Forbes Fastest Growing Technology Companies, Deloitte Technology Fast 500 and Software Magazine's Annual Software 500. 

Karsan's appearance will air at 12:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 2, 2011 and can be accessed directly at
