Kenexa Helps HR Professionals With Tough Global Expansion Challenges

Launch of HR "GlobBlog" Gives Companies a New Complimentary Resource for Sound Global HR Advice

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2011) - Kenexa (NASDAQ: KNXA), a global provider of business solutions for human resources, today unveiled the HR GlobBlog [blog.kenexa.com/hrglobblog], a place for HR professionals to ask industry experts for advice about global talent expansion, including talent recruitment, retention and more. Announced during the 14th Annual HR Technology® Conference & Exposition, the new blog is a natural extension of Kenexa's consultative, relationship-driven approach to doing business.

Recent research by SHRM and The Economist found that 75 percent of businesses expect to compete in new foreign markets over the next 10 years. In addition, according to the SHRM Workplace Forecast survey report released in February, 59 percent of the 1,247 HR Professionals who responded predicted that expansion of U.S. companies into the global marketplace will have a major strategic impact on the workplace -- and on the HR profession itself.

"For more than 25 years, we have been in the business of enriching lives through our products, services and behavioral science. During that time, we've learned a thing or two about the growing pains of global expansion -- both as a growing company ourselves as well as a partner to our customers. We created HR GlobBlog to share that hard-earned knowledge with HR professionals so that they can pose their questions and receive real-life insights," stated Kenexa's Chief Marketing Officer, Tim Geisert.

Available at blog.kenexa.com/hrglobblog, the vendor-agnostic site is open to everyone -- not just Kenexa customers. HR professionals will find it particularly useful when looking for expert advice about the challenges they may face when attracting and retaining talent around the world. Kenexa's team of "GlobBloggers" will answer user questions related to the attraction, connection, recruitment and retention of global talent. After a simple registration process, visitors pose a question and receive a thoughtful response from a Kenexa GlobBlogger, who is a recognized expert on the ramifications of global expansion for HR professionals.

The origin of the name "GlobBlog" is from the word "global." GlobBlog is intended to enable a new community of professionals to benefit from the pervasive trends, learning and patterns observed by Kenexa as it serves its global customer base, ultimately helping visitors improve their own organization's performance and success.
