National Staffing Company to Take Advantage of Kenexa's Intelligent, User-Friendly System

Precision Resources Selects Kenexa's Applicant Tracking Solution

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - Kenexa® (NASDAQ: KNXA), a global provider of talent acquisition and retention solutions, today announced that Precision Resources, a nationwide staffing service firm specializing in the engineering, construction and maintenance industries, has selected Kenexa for its applicant tracking needs. The staffing firm has chosen Kenexa to provide its enterprise recruiting software solution, which will enable a greater understanding of hiring practices across the entire organization.

"We have a long-standing relationship with Precision Resources' parent company, Zachry Holdings, Inc. Now that Precision is using the same reliable Kenexa system, the two organizations will be able to track hiring metrics across all business lines. With an integrated and standardized database of candidate information, the companies can make better decisions on how to keep attracting the very best talent in the industry," stated Rudy Karsan, CEO, Kenexa.

With Kenexa's software-as-a-service (SaaS) applicant tracking system, companies turn their Web sites into interactive career centers, while reducing cost and time per hire. The system seamlessly integrates with Kenexa's proven testing and assessment technologies to consistently identify the most talented candidates. Through this intelligent, user-friendly solution, Kenexa enhances traditional applicant tracking systems that include requisition creation, processing and posting, resume searching, sorting and filing, applicant workflow, interview scheduling and tracking, candidate communications and reporting. The best-of-breed web-based technology provides organizations everything they need to locate and track candidates as they move through the hiring process.

"We were looking for a solution that would offer not only the traditional candidate tracking functionality of a standard applicant tracking system, but that also would allow our recruiters to mine candidates, create hot lists and separate information into the specific categories that are the primary drivers to our database," noted Jeff Roach, director of field leadership/nuclear recruiting for Precision Resources. "With Kenexa's system, we can do all of that, plus segment our database by client, allowing our recruiters to use information unique to each of our clients while still enjoying global oversight of the entire process."
