Kenexa (NASDAQ: KNXA), a global provider of business solutions for human resources, today announced that best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell will provide a keynote presentation during its upcoming 2010 Kenexa World Conference, which will be held Tuesday, September 21 through Thursday, September 23, 2010, in Philadelphia, USA.
Based on his book “Outliers: The Story of Success,” Gladwell’s keynote presentation will explore the importance of both the individual and the environment in explaining extraordinary success. Gladwell has been a staff writer with The New Yorker magazine since 1996. He also is the author of three other books, all of which were New York Times best sellers.
The fifth annual Kenexa World Conference promises to transform HR through outliers, helping organisations move beyond potential to drive business performance. To reveal true human potential to improve business results, companies must identify and nurture high performers and create the right environment for them to thrive. Attendees of the conference will come to understand how the right individuals in the right environment lead to ultimate success.
“True HR transformation is possible when companies are able to recognise and nurture the talent within their organisation. Only then can an organisation move from potential to performance,” said Rudy Karsan, Kenexa’s chief executive officer. “At the Kenexa World Conference, we have gathered industry luminaries, such as Malcolm Gladwell, to provide insight into achieving excellent individual and organisational performance. Only at the conference will leaders at all levels of HR and from all industries find the perfect learning and networking environment.”
