Kenexa Launches Game Changing Social Solutions for Recruiting

Industry Leader Delivers Comprehensive Offerings That Help Companies Move From "Post and Pray" State to Proactive Social Recruiting

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwire - Jul 21, 2011) - Kenexa (NASDAQ: KNXA), a global provider of business solutions for human resources, today unveiled details of its newest suite of offerings: Social Solutions. Kenexa Social Solutions is the industry's first multi-faceted set of social recruiting tools paired with attraction strategies and consulting to help HR professionals and recruiters fully leverage all the benefits of the social world through one vendor. Kenexa Social Solutions draws on Kenexa's deep industry expertise in sourcing, recruiting, employment branding and social media to deliver positive outcomes for hiring employers as well as job candidates.

Eric Lochner, president of Global Talent Management at Kenexa, said, "Many companies want to harness the tangible benefits of social recruiting but -- whether due to resources, time and other commitments -- cannot readily tap into its full range of possibilities. As an industry leader, it was a natural progression that Kenexa take the initiative to develop the industry's first truly integrated comprehensive offering that brings together the power of the applicant tracking system with the power of social networks."

Uniquely positioned through its technology, content and services, Kenexa has a long-standing position as one of the talent acquisition and talent management industry's innovators. Kenexa Social Solutions goes past just addressing social media and into creating multi-dimensional attraction strategies and connection tools to address end-to-end recruitment. Beyond the obvious such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, Kenexa offers sourcing strategies, candidate relationship management and consulting services that help attract, connect and recruit with talent like never before.

Included in Kenexa Social Solutions is a candidate relationship management tool that focuses on social recruiting and building passive candidate relationships. Using its robust API, Kenexa offers social career centers to empower candidates to interact with their social networks as they apply for jobs. Social consulting and management is included to provide the clients baseline for true social strategies and candidate attraction. Kenexa will continue to deliver on the promise of a social candidate and recruiter experience through its broad set and ever-expanding list of social features within its award-winning global talent acquisition solution, Kenexa 2x BrassRing™, including posting and sharing jobs across the most prominent social networks.

Available now, Kenexa Social Solutions has already been field-tested by one of the world's largest retailers. Additional information on Kenexa's recruiting solutions may be accessed at http://kenexa.com/recruitment-technology.
