Kenexa Expert to Present Webcast on Driving Success Through Performance Excellence, Employee Engagement

Dr. Jack Wiley to Present Kenexa's New High Performance-Engagement Model

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwire - September 3, 2009) - Kenexa (NASDAQ: KNXA), a global provider of business solutions for human resources, today announced that Dr. Jack W. Wiley, executive director of the Kenexa Research Institute, will be presenting a Webcast on Kenexa's new High Performance-Engagement Model (HPEM). "Driving Success Through Performance Excellence and Employee Engagement" will be broadcast on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 from 11:00 a.m. to noon ET.

Dr. Wiley is recognized internationally for groundbreaking research that links employee survey results to measures of customer satisfaction and business performance. Drawing from the WorkTrends™ database -- an online survey of workers that covers a wide range of employee topics from turnover intention to green initiatives to organizational activities, such as the incidence of layoffs or off shoring -- he will share where employees report strengths as well as opportunities for improvement, in both performance and engagement. He will also discuss how to use Kenexa's HPEM effectively and what leaders need to focus on within their organization to maximize workforce productivity.

"Kenexa's High Performance-Engagement Model works well in both lean economic times and during times of high economic growth. Engaged employees not only stay longer with an organization but are also motivated to be more productive, more conscientious, less error-prone and more inclined to take better care of customers, important attributes in any economic climate," commented Wiley, who has a Ph.D. in organizational psychology and over 25 years of experience working in a variety of industries including healthcare, financial services and retail.

Kenexa helps to put people in the right jobs and to create work environments that maximize their potential. The company utilizes technology and the science of human behavior to transform performance management into true business processes. Its employee engagement surveys provide employers with actionable data on the attitudes and perceptions of their employees, providing opportunities for making important organizational changes.
