Taleo Corporation (NASDAQ: TLEO), the global leader of SaaS-based Talent Management solutions, today announced the broadening of its presence in Germany by expanding its facilities and staff in Taleo’s Frankfurt offices and datacenter. The expansion efforts build on Taleo’s July acquisition of Jobpartners, a move that doubled the company’s European customer base and professional staff.

“As social media and mobile technologies move Talent Management processes from the filing cabinet to the cloud, SaaS-based Talent Management is becoming an integral part of successful business management,” said Michael Gregoire, Chairman and CEO of Taleo. “As today’s announcement shows, Taleo is committed to a sustained, long-term investment strategy to pursue the opportunities we have identified in Germany. In fact, our goal is to generate a significant amount of new bookings from Germany over the next three years.”

Investments in Local Team and Facilities
Even before the Jobpartners acquisition, Taleo maintained numerous international customers deployed in Germany. Now, by leveraging the combined presence and expertise of Taleo and Jobpartners, the company can offer its German clients broader product and service capabilities. For example, Taleo will expand its existing datacenter presence in Germany and intends to further grow its Frankfurt-based team. Taleo will expand existing German-speaking technical support, sales, client executive, and implementation consulting resources, and is already hiring new positions for marketing leadership, inside sales and solution consulting in Germany.

Established Provider for Talent Management Solutions
Taleo has a European customer base of more than 250 clients. With more than 5,000 customers worldwide, Taleo supports dozens of large enterprise-class clients in Germany, including Deloitte, Ernst & Young, Mars, Merck, Procter & Gamble, and Roche. Globally, Taleo serves customers in 187 countries and employs more than 1,500 people worldwide.

Taleo’s SaaS-based Talent Management solutions optimize recruiting, performance management, learning and compensation, and arm organizations with Talent Intelligence, which is the insight companies need to grow their business by capitalizing on their most critical asset — their people. By tapping the world’s largest and most scalable Talent Management Cloud, Taleo delivers up-to-date information and increased visibility into candidates and employees so managers can see the talent that is powering their organization and better understand how to recruit, retain, and mobilize that talent.
