Peopleclick Authoria Chairman and CEO to Be Featured on The Bill Kutik Radio Show®

Charles Jones to Discuss HR as the Core Strategy of the Business

RALEIGH, NC and WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - May 10, 2011) - Peopleclick Authoria, currently serving nearly 60 percent of the Fortune 100 with best-of-breed suite solutions for Talent Management, Vendor Management and Workforce Compliance and Diversity, today announced that its Chairman and CEO, Charles Jones, will be a featured guest on The Bill Kutik Radio Show tomorrow at noon Eastern time.

Before joining the human resource management marketplace with the purchases and leadership of Authoria, Peopleclick and Aquire software, announced earlier this year, Jones was a prominent chief executive in a series of large multi-national enterprises. In his last CEO position, Jones was named by the National Post as one of Canada's top 10 CEOs, during which time Geac's stock became the top global stock according to the Wall Street Journal. Ultimately, Jones redefined the Geac business to create enhanced customer value and sold the enterprise in 2006 for $1 billion -- an almost 10 times return for shareholders.

Convinced that people make up the scope and limits of a company's strategy horizon, Jones will discuss his assertion that human resources IS the strategy of the business. He will offer his view on what "system of record" may come to mean as it is increasingly driven and determined by the individual as social media shifts traditional paradigms. He will also examine workplace transitions from cultures of privacy to cultures of consciousness with a new world of workforce analytics and workforce business intelligence and, finally, he will discuss how HR needs to be doing compliance differently.

The Bill Kutik Radio Show is a bi-weekly online talk show hosted by Bill Kutik, a leading independent analyst in the HR technology marketplace. Produced by Knowledge Infusion, the show features unedited and unrehearsed conversations with some of the industry's key thought leaders, including executives from leading technology providers. Jones is the guest on the Wednesday, May 11, 2011 show, which airs at 12:00 noon ET.

"As head of private equity firm Bedford Funding, Charles Jones bought Authoria and then Peopleclick and put them together. But his personal history goes way back in enterprise software (and also public relations). Hear his unique insights after nearly three years in the world of HR by tuning in," said Bill Kutik, Technology Columnist, Human Resource Executive and HRE Online.

In April, Peopleclick Authoria continued its commitment to build out its best-of-breed strategy for talent management with the acquisition of Aquire Solutions. By adding one of the fastest-growing and innovative workforce planning and analytics solutions available in the market, Peopleclick Authoria continues to accelerate business outcomes and success through strategic workforce optimization.
