August 9, 2011 – Kenexa Corporation, a global provider of business solutions for human resources, has acquired The Ashbourne Group, a supplier of HR and occupational psychology services to businesses in the U.K. and Ireland for almost 20 years. Terms and conditions of the deal were not disclosed. The Ashbourne Group is recognized for its intense focus on the U.K. public sector as the company has designed and delivered a wide range of behavioral assessment, learning and development products based on government competencies and performance standards. Andrew Jackson, head of Kenexa Government Solutions, said: “The pressure on the public sector to improve efficiencies in a cost effective manner is leading to a centralized procurement model. Global vendors such as Kenexa add greater value under this model as we have the bench strength and full range of technology, content and services needed to compete and execute effectively. We believe the combination of The Ashbourne Group’s offerings and public sector reputation with our innovation and proven solutions will offer new solutions for the public sector and help further solidify Kenexa as a preferred supplier to the U.K. government.”
