IBM completes acquisition of Kenexa!!
Today IBM announced (http://www.ibm.com/press/us/en/pressrelease/39501.wss) the closing of its acquisition of Kenexa. Kenexa is a leading provider of recruiting & talent mgt, and brings IBM a unique combo cloud technology & consulting services that integrates both people and processes. Kenexa will help IBM clients engage a smarter, more effective workforce!
Did you know that 57% of CEOs in an IBM study said that becoming a social business is a top priority? 73%+ are investing to capture and draw data-based insights. 70% of them cited “human capital” as the single biggest contributor to sustained economic value, and I think the combined strengths of IBM and Kenexa will help IBM clients increase workforce efficiencies.
I’d like to give a big shout out & welcome to the Kenexa team, who just joined IBM — we’re going to do great things together. At Connect2013 (Connect 2013) you know we’ll be talking all about using social technology, analytics, talent management, and human insights to attract and retain the right talent and enable employee skills.
