Cornerstone’s signature event connects learning, HR and talent management professionals from around the world with top industry thought leaders and Cornerstone team members to discuss workforce trends and share people management strategies and technology best practices.

This year’s Convergence agenda boasts 60 interactive educational sessions, the majority of which will be led by learning, HR and talent management professionals representing top-tier Cornerstone clients across a wide variety of industries. Clients include American Bankers Association, Advantage Sales and Marketing, BMC Software, EchoStar Corporation, MasterCard Worldwide, McCarthy Building Companies, MetroPCS, The Neiman Marcus Group, Pitney Bowes, State of Nebraska, Tractor Supply Company, True Value Company, Turner Broadcasting System and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, among others.

The theme of this year’s Convergence conference is “Building the Empowered Enterprise.” Mainstream adoption of online, social, mobile and cloud technologies are changing how consumers live, communicate and work. This shift is requiring organizations to adapt to new ways of functioning and thinking, especially as it relates to workforce management. Adam Miller, Cornerstone’s founder and CEO, will explore how these trends are impacting clients and influencing Cornerstone’s product innovation during his opening keynote presentation, which will be streamed live to Cornerstone’s Web site.

“The concept of the Empowered Enterprise is rooted in the convergence of technology and people,” said Miller. “Technology strategies are now being driven by what employees need and want in order to get their jobs done, while incorporating the devices and applications they use every day. This creates significant opportunities for organizations to transform the ways in which they engage, enable and empower their workforce through learning, performance and talent management initiatives.”

Conference sessions are organized into seven tracks tailored for professionals at every level – including business leaders, managers, administrators and IT professionals – as well as tracks for new and prospective Cornerstone clients. Topics span the talent management spectrum, from recruiting, learning and development, enterprise social networking, and performance management, to succession planning, employee career management, extended enterprise enablement and more.

For the first quarter of 2012, Kenexa reported total GAAP revenue of $77.8 million. Non-GAAP revenue, which eliminates the GAAP adjustment to deferred revenue resulting from certain acquisitions, was $80.1 million for the first quarter of 2012, an increase of 27% compared to $63.0 million for the first quarter of 2011. Within total non-GAAP revenue, subscription revenue was $57.6 million for the first quarter of 2012, an increase of 17% compared with $49.2 million in the first quarter of 2011. Professional services and other revenue was $22.5 million for the first quarter of 2012, an increase of 63% compared to$13.8 million for the first quarter of 2011.

“We started 2012 on a strong note with both revenue and non-GAAP profitability exceeding our guidance. In addition to signing a multi-million dollar agreement with the UK’s Ministry of Defense, we added three new Fortune 50 customers during the first quarter. These wins further reinforce that Kenexa has the best-in-class, SaaS recruiting platform for large, global organizations, and they follow Kenexa winning the three largest talent management deal opportunities during 2011 that we are aware of,” said Rudy Karsan, Chief Executive Officer of Kenexa.

Karsan added, “We are optimistic about our outlook for the balance of 2012 and believe that Kenexa is well positioned to realize continued market share gains. We increasingly see HR organizations seeking a holistic solution to address their challenges, and Kenexa’s highly differentiated product offerings and unparalleled content and domain expertise are resonating in the market.”

Non-GAAP income from operations, which excludes share-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangibles, the purchase accounting impact of deferred revenue, and acquisition related fees, was $6.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. This represented an 8.5% non-GAAP operating margin and an increase of 36% compared to non-GAAP income from operations of $5.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011.

Non-GAAP net income available to common shareholders, which excludes the items listed above and includes a tax adjustment on the non-GAAP items, was $5.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $3.7 million for the three months endedMarch 31, 2011. Non-GAAP net income available to common shareholders was $0.19 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2012, above the Company’s guidance of $0.15 to $0.17and based on 28.1 million weighted average shares outstanding. Non-GAAP net income available to common shareholders was $0.15 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2011, based on 24.1 million weighted average shares outstanding.

Kenexa’s loss from operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012, determined in accordance with GAAP, was $3.0 million, compared to a loss from operations of $2.8 million for the same period of 2011. GAAP net loss allocable to common shareholders was approximately $2.5 million, or ($0.09) per basic and diluted shares for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to net loss of $3.2 million, or ($0.14) per basic and diluted share, in the same period of 2011.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in the financial statement tables included at the end of this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

Kenexa had cash, cash equivalents and investments of $83.0 million at March 31, 2012, compared to $129.0 million at the end of the prior quarter. The decrease in cash was primarily the result of the $41.1 million paid for the acquisition of OutStart. The Company generated $1.7 million in cash from operations for the first quarter and used $7.1 million associated with capital expenditures and capitalized investments. Deferred revenue was$96.6 million at March 31, 2012, an increase of 18% from March 31, 2011.

Other First Quarter and Recent Highlights

Kenexa, in collaboration with Capita plc, signed a contract to work in partnership to deliver the Recruitment Partnering Project (RPP) for the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense. Kenexa is providing the recruitment technology and assessment solutions to Capita in delivery of this project, which is responsible for the entire process of attracting and recruiting soldiers and officers to the Regular and Territorial British Army.

More than 70 “preferred partner” customers were added during the first quarter (defined as customers that spend more than $50,000 annually), an increase from the over 50 preferred partner customer additions in the year ago period.

The average annualized revenue from the company’s top 80 customers, or P-cubed metric, was greater than $1.8 million in the first quarter of 2012, an increase from the over $1.4 million level in the first quarter of 2011.

Kenexa announced a partnership with Daesign, a specialist provider of games-based simulated environments and Autonomous Virtual Actors to develop talent attraction, assessment, development and engagement solutions for the marketplace.

Kenexa was chosen as a Top Recruitment Technology Provider, being honored at the Pentagon by the Military Spouse Corporate Career Network (MSCCN) for its partnership to provide a recruitment technology platform that helps veterans, their spouses and family members identify and obtain new employment.

Business Outlook

Based on information as of today, May 1, 2012, the Company is issuing financial guidance as follows:

Second Quarter 2012*: The Company expects GAAP revenue to be $84 million to $86 million. Excluding the GAAP adjustment to deferred revenue resulting from certain acquisitions, the Company expects non-GAAP revenue to be $86 million to $88 million, and non-GAAP operating income to be $8.3 million to $8.7 million. Assuming an effective tax rate for reporting purposes of approximately 20% and approximately 28.3 million shares outstanding, Kenexa expects its non-GAAP net income per diluted share to be $0.22 to $0.23.

Full Year 2012*: The Company expects GAAP revenue to be $348 million to $358 million. Excluding the GAAP adjustment to deferred revenue, the Company expects non-GAAP revenue to be $355 million to $365 million, and non-GAAP operating income to be $37 million to $41 million. Assuming an effective tax rate for reporting purposes of approximately 20% and approximately 28.6 million shares outstanding, Kenexa expects its non-GAAP net income per diluted share to be $0.98 to $1.09.

The above 2012 guidance represents an increase from our prior guidance of non-GAAP revenue of $352 million to $362 million, non-GAAP operating income of $36 million to $40 million, and non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.95 to $1.07.

* Kenexa’s non-GAAP guidance excludes stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangibles, acquisition-related fees, the purchase accounting reduction for Salary.com’s and OutStart’s revenue, and accretion associated with a variable interest entity.

Salvation Army Moving to SumTotal Cloud for Payroll, Benefits, & Human Resources Management…from SumTotal Systems

Non-profit Seeks Improved Efficiency and Reliability Leveraging SumTotal’s Human Capital Management Expertise

 

HRchitect featured SumTotal Systems in our release of The Suite Life of Integrated Talent Management and also includes them in our list of top Talent Management Systems and top Learning Management Systems vendors that businesses should consider.

SumTotal® Systems, Inc., the global leader in Strategic Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, recently announced that The Salvation Army in Canada has selected SumTotal’s integrated cloud solution to meet its payroll, benefits and human resources management needs. The organization also chose SumTotal’s Managed Services to provide comprehensive IT support for its payroll and HR system.

The Salvation Army is an international Christian organization that began its work in Canada in 1882 and has grown to become the largest non-governmental direct provider of social services in the country. The Toronto-based headquarters provides administrative support, including payroll processing, to many of the hundreds of ministry units located in communities across Canada and Bermuda.

By moving to a cloud-based platform with the support of SumTotal’s HCM and IT experts, The Salvation Army will be able to provide streamlined payroll, benefits and HR services to a larger number of its ministry units while increasing reliability.

“Improving the system effectiveness was our first priority, but we also wanted to ensure we did it in a cost-effective manner,” said Maisie Wong, assistant financial secretary for The Salvation Army in Canada and Bermuda. “With SumTotal’s Managed Services, we will have access to their expertise for faster and more knowledgeable support.”

Wong said they are also looking forward to improving efficiency by eliminating many semi-manual processes the organization currently uses to distribute pay stubs and reports to its geographically dispersed employees.

“SumTotal’s web-based self-service option will allow our employees to securely access their information online instead of us manually creating and emailing pdf files for paystubs,” Wong said. “Also, the enhanced reporting tools will provide managers access to information they need from any location.”

The Salvation Army’s Canadian headquarters currently processes payroll for about half of its 11,000 employees. Wong said they began incrementally moving payroll, benefits and HR functions to the main office several years ago. Now with the added reliability and functionality of SumTotal’s Managed Services and private-cloud solution, they hope to speed up that centralization.

“We understand the unique challenges not-for-profit organizations face with keeping overhead costs as low as possible while still providing payroll and HR services reliably and in compliance with local and federal regulations,” said SumTotal’s CEO John Borgerding. “SumTotal is proud to offer cost-effective human capital management solutions that help organizations like The Salvation Army improve efficiencies and free up limited internal resources so they can focus on their primary mission of helping people in need.”

As the only cloud-based HCM provider of a full suite of talent management solutions, SilkRoad expects rapid growth in 2012. SilkRoad was founded on the idea that companies can build a self-motivating culture by empowering employees with the tools needed to drive their own careers and work relationships. In 2011, as the Human Capital Management market continued to accelerate, SilkRoad expanded its global footprint with additional offices in London, France and Japan; deployed HRMS solution, SilkRoad HeartBeat, to a record number of new customers; announced a revolutionary new social matrix solution, SilkRoad Point; and welcomed almost 400 new customers.

“The talent management marketplace is the next battleground for competitiveness,” said Flip Filipowski, executive chairman and CEO of SilkRoad technology. “The recent acquisitions of cloud-based talent management providers by the SAPs and Oracles of the world prove this, and we are proud at SilkRoad to be continuing down a path of innovation. By enhancing and building upon our award-winning product suite with platforms like Point, we will continue to grow our footprint in Illinois, nationally and globally.”

The ITA received a record-setting number of nominations this year, with the ITA’s panel of judges selecting the top entries in each of nine award categories. Public voting is online now through April 25. Winners are determined by a blended score based equally on public voting and the judges’ panel in all categories except the CityLIGHTS award, which is selected by the ITA Board of Directors, and will be announced at the CityLIGHTS Awards Gala on Thursday, May 10, 2012.

“It was no easy feat for the judges to determine the finalists for each award,” said ITA CEO Fred Hoch. “The past 12 months have been a time of unprecedented growth, accomplishments and innovation in Illinois, and this energy is reflected in the quantity and quality of CityLIGHTS awards nominees.”

Cornerstone OnDemand Again Named a Leader in IDC Integrated Talent Management MarketScape Report…from Cornerstone

April 28, 2012

 

The 2012 report recognizes Cornerstone for its premier client service, strong functional capabilities and true multitenant SaaS architecture

 

HRchitect featured Cornerstone OnDemand in our first release of The Suite Life of Integrated Talent Management and also includes them in our list of top Talent Management Systems and top Learning Management Systems vendors that businesses should consider. Charles Coy participated in the HRchitect WebMingle on January 16, 2009 and again on December 8, 2011. HRchitect attended and sponsored Cornerstone’s user conference in 2009 and 2010.

If you are looking for a new Talent Management System, or any HR system, don’t rely solely on “recommendations” or published reports. Do yourself a huge favor and talk to HRchitect first. After 15 years, HRchitect has unparalleled knowledge of the HR and Talent Management vendor community and can save you time and money in selection and implementation. Simply put, do not invest in any kind of HR technology without consulting with the experts first. HRchitect is always available to help!

 

Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ:CSOD), a global leader in cloud-based talent management software solutions, today announced that it has again been named a “Leader” in IDC’s latest Integrated Talent Management MarketScape report. The evaluation is based on a comprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses vendors relative to the criteria and one another and highlights the factors expected to be the most influential to success in the market, both short and long term.

“With strong functional capabilities, true multitenant SaaS for scalability and solid customer references, Cornerstone OnDemand is once again a leader in this analysis,” Lisa Rowan, program director of HR, learning and talent strategies at IDC, states in the 2012 report. “Strengths include very high scores in customer service, depth of capability of individual modules, cost appropriateness and timeliness of releases.”

IDC defines talent management as those functions that serve to attract, develop, reward and retain the workforce, with functionality for recruiting and staffing, learning and development, performance management, compensation management, and career and succession planning. According to the report, an escalating level of importance for all of these talent management functions is driving greater demand for integrated suites from a single vendor.

“Our clients benefit from seamless integration of features and functionality, as well as a unified interface, because our solution is pure SaaS and built on a single code base,” said Charles Coy, senior director of analyst and community relations for Cornerstone OnDemand. “While other vendors remain distracted with ERP acquisitions and consolidation of products and services, Cornerstone is focused on advancing and evolving its solutions to align with the ways organizations of all sizes use technology to engage, enable and empower their people. A recent example of our innovation is the addition of the Cornerstone Recruiting Cloud to our organically developed software suite.”

Personalized, relevant learning content can be selected and delivered directly from the cloud within the familiar, web-based user experience of Lumesse ETWeb.

“Lumesse Learning Gateway takes the pain out of managing learning,” said Lumesse CEO Matthew Parker. “This release helps both learners and learning managers to find and manage the training they need. Learners can identify and start training that is directly relevant to their career goals and their company objectives through a familiar talent management environment. Training managers can control the process, workflow and reporting of learning with less effort and greater oversight. Organizations get better trained, more motivated people with lower costs and less administrative overhead.”

Users can quickly find best-match learning activities that support career development and objectives, start e-learning from within the talent management system, and easily identify recommended and mandatory training – supporting increased completion ratios. Direct access to development history and development plans from a Talent Profile give a clear overview of training taken and required, while integrated reporting measures and analyzes progress and completion against planned and mandatory learning, as well as cost breakdowns. Configurable workflows allow managers easy approval of learning activities.

Lumesse Learning Gateway 5.7 is available immediately.
