Kenexa Introduces New Recruitment Process Outsourcing Solution: ZOOMRecruit

Global RPO Leader Gives Companies Innovative Option for Rapid Recruiting of High-Quality Candidates

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwire - March 23, 2011) - Kenexa (NASDAQ: KNXA), a global provider of business solutions for human resources, today announced the release of ZOOMRecruit, a new rapid recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) option for companies that need to hire top talent quickly -- often in less than a year.

Developed in response to the accelerated hiring blitz that many companies are undergoing thanks to a recovering U.S. economy, ZOOMRecruit makes it easier for companies to source candidates quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. The solution provides two levels of RPO support -- project-based RPO and sourcing. The project-based RPO solution delivers all of the components of Kenexa's complete RPO solution, including sourcing and recruiting, employment branding and employee assessments, for a short, defined period. With the sourcing only solution, Kenexa sources and recruits top candidates and then submits them to the requesting company for next actions.

"As our economy begins to heat up, many companies need to hire talent quickly to backfill positions that had been reduced. Companies need these hires yesterday to keep up with growing demand. Kenexa has developed an innovative RPO solution that is in keeping with our promise to provide flexible, customized solutions for our clients," stated Phil Stewart, president, Recruitment Process Outsourcing, Kenexa. "ZOOMRecruit allows for a company to benefit from a full-blown RPO solution in a relatively short period of time -- a year or less -- and often targeted to a very specific staffing need. Ramping up a company's workforce has never been easier."

Powered by Kenexa 2x BrassRing®, the new product combines Kenexa's global RPO solution, which is renowned for delivering a higher quality of candidate, with BrassRing's world-class recruiting technology. ZOOMRecruit also has the flexibility to integrate with a company's existing applicant tracking system (ATS).

Stewart continued, "As one of the most respected RPO providers around the world, we have a long history of creating groundbreaking solutions that evolve to meet market demand. ZOOMRecruit will deliver the same cost reductions and high-quality candidates that our existing RPO solution provides."

ZOOMRecruit is available immediately for new and existing Kenexa customers. For more information, visit
