Chicago, IL, July 27, 2011 — Vangent, Inc., a leading provider of preemployment risk assessments, announced today its Risk and Talent Management unit is officially integrated with Taleo Business Edition’s on-demand recruitment solution. Taleo Business Edition is the market leader for providing small and medium-sized enterprises (up to 5,000 employees) with a turnkey and complete automated hiring system. In its partnership, Vangent will offer its industry-leading Human Capital Risk Management assessment solutions, including the Reid Report® Risk Assessment for pre-employment screening, as well as a variety of other validated tools for employee selection and development. Vangent’s risk management solutions are a first-of-their kind offering for Taleo Business Edition customers, filling a niche in risk screening for Taleo Business Edition users.

“For many years, Taleo and Vangent have been leaders in the talent acquisition and employee assessment industry. Taleo has helped transform automated hiring solutions, and Vangent has provided some of the industry’s strongest assessment content, helping organizations to minimize losses and maximize performance, including our focus on risk management,” said Andre Allen, Vice President of Vangent’s Risk & Talent Management unit. “Practitioners and providers in this space who have sought to combine top content and top technology will immediately recognize the significance of this partnership”.

Vangent has long supported Human Resources, Operations, Risk Management, Loss Prevention and a range of other departments across industries. The company’s tools, including The Reid Report® and the new Reid Report® Risk Assessment, have helped countless organizations to reduce losses due to employee theft, turnover, absenteeism, illicit drug use and disciplinary violations. The company’s risk focus also highlights ethics, information security, safety and other arenas to address cyber-security, insider threats, compliance issues and a range of other risk exposures. Vangent has supported the industry for more than 60 years and the organization includes original co-founders of The Association of Test Publishers. The integrated offering provides a seamless addition to Taleo Business Edition’s capabilities and simplifying choices for customers who will no longer need to decide whether to prioritize “content” or “technology”, a longstanding challenge in the hiring space.

Taleo Business Edition offers complete solutions for our clients, and Vangent’s risk tools are a timely addition to Taleo Business Edition Recruit, as the industry recognizes the growing need for assessment of risk exposures from job applicants, employees and leaders”.
