Kenexa® (NASDAQ: KNXA), a global provider of business solutions for human resources, and The Brooklyn Group, Australia’s leading relationship-driven recruitment provider, today announced an alliance that expands Kenexa’s presence in the Australian RPO market. Kenexa selected The Brooklyn Group for its expertise in transaction, project and enterprise recruiting services as well as its local leadership.

Phil Stewart, RPO President of Kenexa, said, “As the Australian economy outperforms its global counterparts, the competition for recruiting and retaining the best employees will increase. This market represents significant opportunities for both companies. Together, we’ll help global and local companies in Australia design and execute their recruitment strategies, leveraging their brands, recruiting technologies and performance.”

Brian Russell, Chief Executive Officer of The Brooklyn Group, commented, “Kenexa is a proven partner to many multi-national companies operating in the Australian market. The company’s breadth of products and services will enable local companies and businesses expanding in Australia to create working environments where employees can flourish.”

Kenexa Brooklyn will be headed by Brett Douglas, Director of The Brooklyn Group, who has significant outsourcing experience. Douglas previously formed Futurestep’s outsourcing organization in Australia.

The relationship with The Brooklyn Group is a logical extension of Kenexa’s growing footprint, especially in the strategic Australian market. Kenexa has already touched the lives of more than 110 million people worldwide, including more than 85 million candidates in applicant tracking systems, more than 10 million employees surveyed annually, more than 15 million assessments administered annually and more than 52,000 employees placed annually through its recruitment process outsourcing offering.

Stewart observed, “Kenexa possesses the unique combination of software, science and business process optimization. Our primary focus is helping our clients hire and retain more productive workforces and through our relationship with The Brooklyn Group we’re looking forward to intensifying our presence in the region.”
