Peopleclick Authoria Builds Strategic Alliance With First Advantage

Company Further Enhances Multi-National Service Offerings With Leading Pre-Employment Assessment and Screening Capabilities for Customers in European and Asia-Pacific Regions

LONDON--(Marketwire - March 9, 2010) - Peopleclick Authoria, currently serving 60 percent of the Fortune 100 with best-of-breed suite solutions for Talent Acquisition and Talent Management, announced today a strategic alliance with First Advantage, one of the largest pre-hire screening solution providers in the world. Through this partnership, Peopleclick Authoria offers its global client base deep assessment and pre-employment screening capabilities.

"In today's economy, each employee plays an even more critical role in the overall success of an organisation. With fewer roles assigned to an increasing number of corporate demands and expectations, the quality of every hire is essential to productivity, innovation and performance," said Larry Cucchi, EMEA Managing Director for Peopleclick Authoria. "The market is currently over-run with qualified, talented individuals, and with this dynamic, our customers are increasingly challenged to sort through multiple layers of information in their efforts to find the best fit. Today, through our strong partnership with First Advantage, we are delivering one of the most competitive and robust assessment and background screening systems as part of our full suite of Talent Acquisition services to Peopleclick Authoria customers around the world."

Pre-employment and background check screenings are critically important productivity and compliance initiatives for many international organizations. Through this alliance, Peopleclick Authoria clients will have access to a cost-effective, international screening provider that understands each country's screening program and can ensure the success of their background screening program. First Advantage's world-class assessment tool addresses the needs of global organisations as they look to streamline the end-to-end hiring process and achieve meaningful results, including an improved quality-of-hire within today's shifting market dynamics.

"In the past 18 months, we have seen an ever-increasing demand for global assessment capabilities in the customer base we serve. We appreciate Peopleclick Authoria's deep commitment to delivering their customers leading Talent Acquisition offerings on a worldwide basis and are delighted to be providing our leading assessment tools to their large international customer base," said Mark Braund, Managing Director & Executive Vice President for First Advantage. "This is the beginning of a strong partnership. We look forward to offering customers of both companies in the European and Asia Pacific regions access to a range of leading products and services that will seamlessly extend the recruiting workflow."
