The five year engagement represents Kenexa’s largest global RPO partnership, and also includes Kenexa’s award-winning onboarding, recruiting, assessment, and survey solutions and employment branding.

In making its decision, Lilly sought to consolidate many of its global recruitment processes with an experienced pharmaceutical expert such as Kenexa, in order to increase efficiencies in the end-to-end recruiting process. Lilly and Kenexa share a strong presence in several global growth markets which further established synergies between the companies.

Rudy Karsan, CEO of Kenexa, commented, “Improving outcomes, enriching lives is the mantra of Kenexa’s relationship with Lilly. Kenexa is proud to be an integral part of Lilly’s global recruiting program.”

“Our selection process was rigorous and Kenexa met our expectations by showcasing their global RPO services capabilities and providing access to their centers of excellence in Asia, Europe, and the Americas,” said Nancy Lange, senior director for Global Recruiting and Staffing for Lilly.  “The company demonstrated their strengths in integrating services, technology, and relevant content.”
