Kenexa (NASDAQ:KNXANews), a global provider of business solutions for human resources, today announced that KPMG in Australia, one of the world’s leading professional services firms, has chosen to use Kenexa’s award-winning HR solutions to transform its talent management approach. The solution will include its global recruiting technology, Kenexa 2x BrassRing®. The Kenexa 2x BrassRing technology will enable KPMG in Australia to manage talent by improving recruitment, pre-hire assessment, on-boarding and succession planning capability.

“KPMG was looking for a system that could manage our talent recruitment process end to end, from application to the onboarding stage. Early testing showed that the Kenexa technology was adept at consolidating our processes,” said Jessica Harrison, KPMG. “Later down the track, we’d like to take it one step further and integrate the Kenexa technology into our succession planning strategy.”

With Kenexa 2x BrassRing, KPMG’s Australian firm will be able to create a strategic recruitment process that integrates all sources of talent and optimizes its workforce performance.

“Talent is the key differentiator in the marketplace and we take it very seriously. Our relationship with Kenexa will assist our strategy of being the best firm to work with and foster our talents’ development throughout their time at KPMG,” stated Harrison.

The Kenexa 2x Onboard™ solution, which provides a seamless bridge between the candidate experience and the employee experience, eliminates paper, cycle time and data-entry errors associated with new employee onboarding. The integrated HR solutions have been shown to reduce overall hiring costs and improve organizational performance.

Duke Daehling, EVP of Strategic Accounts at Kenexa, commented, “Ensuring that a high quality person is in the right position and has the right information to be effective at their job is a true science. For more than 20 years, we have made it our business to develop effective HR technology that enables companies to increase their performance and gain the competitive advantage. We are the only company that offers a comprehensive suite of unified products and services that support the entire employee lifecycle from pre-hire to exit. We are thrilled to welcome KPMG Australia to the Kenexa family of clients and to demonstrate to them our dedication to multiplying our clients’ successes.”
