WAYNE, Pa. (Oct. 2, 2012) – Kenexa (NYSE: KNXA), a global provider of business solutions for human resources, today announced the launch of 2x Assess, an assessment content solution that is highly configurable, provides enhanced reporting and offers extensive multilingual capabilities. Kenexa 2x Assess is the industry’s largest and most powerful global content solution and provides users with unparalleled tools and support to find the very best people and maximize their performance.

Kenexa 2x Assess provides a global content solution as an integrated part of the company’s 2x talent management suite and competency framework, which includes 2x BrassRing and 2x Perform. The 2x Assess platform allows organizations to quickly create customized assessments to drive business performance in areas that matter most to executives.

This solution brings together Kenexa’s unparalleled content library, consulting expertise and best-in-class technology to help organizations hire, develop, retain and promote top talent.

“In 2x Assess, we’ve created a tool that allows companies to use any one of Kenexa’s tested, ready-to-use assessments or select specific questions relevant to their particular job families to create a more productive workforce,” said Troy Kanter, chief operating officer at Kenexa. “2x Assess integrates with an existing recruiting system to help companies hire and retain the best talent.”

What makes 2x Assess so unique is that it provides access to Kenexa’s robust content library of assessments so human resources executives can measure the skills, competencies and personality qualities that matter most to their companies. This library allows companies to assess for specific skills-based traits and high-performing behaviors.

Kenexa administers more than 30 million assessments annually. The library consists of questions that measure tactical skills, experience, bio-data, situational judgment, cognitive ability and behavioral traits.

“We continue to invest our time and resources to enhance our market-leading content library to help companies solve business challenges,” Kanter said. “Through our quality assessments, companies can identify the very best in their people, the best person for each job and the best fit for their unique organization. When this happens, challenges are solved and business improves.”

Other key features of 2x Assess include:

  • Configurable reports that allow users to easily tailor assessments to measure what matters most to their organization.
  • Multilingual capabilities in which new languages can be added in as little as four to six weeks.
  • Custom user interface that gives organizations the ability to create a positive, engaging applicant experience while communicating their unique brand to candidates.
  • Consulting experience that includes the expertise of more than 100 I/O psychologists on staff.
  • A technology platform that is flexible, powerful and adaptable.

In addition to the personality inventory assessments, verbal, numerical and logical reasoning tests are also available through 2x Assess. By the end of the year, the platform will include video-based simulations, situational judgment tests and computer adaptive tests.
