Kenexa Chosen by MSCCN as Top Recruitment Technology Provider

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Feb 28, 2012) - Kenexa (NYSE: KNXA), a global provider of business solutions for human resources, was honored at the Pentagon by the Military Spouse Corporate Career Network (MSCCN) for its partnership to provide a recruitment technology platform that helps veterans, their spouses and family members identify and obtain new employment.

Since 2006, Kenexa has been supporting the MSCCN and the Direct Employers Association to provide military spouses access to more than 750,000 jobs per month from more than 600 Fortune 1000 corporations. MSCCN is a nonprofit organization focused on the provision of no-cost employment readiness, job training and placement assistance for military spouses, transitioning military, veterans, war wounded and caregivers of war wounded. MSCCN is the only nonprofit organization that works as an employment partner to the Armed Forces through Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) from the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard and military family centers on military installations throughout the world.

Kenexa donated its 2xBrassRing® applicant tracking system to MSCCN. This revolutionized military-affiliated employment by providing Kenexa's superior technology to MSCCN. The MSCCN is the first organization to create and maintain a military employment infrastructure that includes a high-touch and personal career management program offered to military-affiliated applicants, at no cost, through programs designed to meet the needs of military job seekers.

"We are honored to receive this recognition for what is, in our view, a most honorable and worthwhile cause and one that Kenexa feels privileged to be associated with," said Rudy Karsan, chief executive officer at Kenexa. "Giving back to the community is a significant aspect of Kenexa's values and it is very gratifying to be able to provide assistance to an organization that helps military spouses, returning veterans and their family members find meaningful employment. We are proud that Kenexa was chosen as the top corporate sponsor to MSCCN and will continue to help the U.S. National Guard and MSCCN meet its mission in 2012."

Kenexa recently signed an MOU with the National Guard to support its "Helping Our Heroes at Home" program. The goal is to improve the ability of serving members of the National Guard to find employment when they return from overseas deployments. The MOU was signed on behalf of Maj. Gen. Raymond W. Carpenter, commanding general of the National Guard Bureau, by Brig. Gen. William L. Stoppel, chief of staff of the Bureau, and Andrew Jackson, who represents Kenexa on MSCCN's board of directors.

Adm. James Winnefeld, vice chairman of the Department of Defense Joint Chiefs of Staff; Maj. Gen. Kelly McKeague, assistant to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for National Guard matters; Deb Kloeppel, president and founder of the MSCCN; and Stacy Bayton, executive director of MSCCN, were among those who attended the ceremony at the Pentagon.
