Taleo Launches New Release of Taleo OnBoard for SMB Market

DUBLIN, CA — June 28, 2011 — Taleo Corporation (NASDAQ: TLEO), the leading provider of on-demand talent management solutions, further solidified its leadership of the small to mid-sized market with the release of a new and expanded Taleo OnBoard™ which will enable companies to quickly and easily onboard employees without the use of costly service engagements. This scalable solution easily adapts to changing requirements and engages new hires on their first day of work to speed productivity.

“The ability to create customizable bundles by position ensures that there isn’t a single thing that falls through the cracks when a new hire starts, and helps to hold individuals accountable for their pieces of the process,” said Casi Jewett, MA, PHR, Employee & Labor Relations for Santa Rosa Community Health Centers. “The new release of Taleo OnBoard will help us to further ensure compliance and speed up the onboarding process, which is critical in the fast-paced medical world.”

Taleo OnBoard debuts industry-first features such as dependent tasks, configurable forms, and location-based activities. The adaptable solution helps executives, line managers, and HR teams build a consistent and repeatable onboarding process. OnBoard builds the right foundation for new hires by providing a smooth and automated conversion experience from candidate to employee — making people feel connected and improving retention — while streamlining existing processes and eliminating mountains of paperwork.

“Taleo OnBoard is the only solution for the small and mid-sized business market that comprehensively equips companies to make the best impression on a new hire’s first day of work, which is a critical first step to engaging and retaining top talent.” said Michael Boese, Senior Vice President, TBE and Talent Grid at Taleo. “These new capabilities strengthen our suite of talent management solutions, including Taleo Recruit, Taleo Perform, Taleo Learn, Taleo Comp and Taleo Insight, and further drives Taleo’s position as the leader in the market.”

Dependent tasks allow employers to designate the order of different onboarding tasks so that the system automatically assigns new tasks upon the completion of other tasks.

Other industry-leading features include:

– Configurable Forms: Administrators can add unlimited, customized company forms — collecting and tracking information that becomes part of the employee record — without lengthy and costly services engagement.
– Employee Life Cycle Management: Reduce administrative burden and improve the communication and collection of information relating to life cycle events such as a change in employment status or signing a new employee handbook.
