Nov 20, 2007 (08:11 AM EST)


DUBLIN, Calif., and SYDNEY, Australia, Nov. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Taleo Corporation , the leading provider of on demand talent management solutions, today announced the successful implementation of Taleo Recruiting(TM) with telecommunications company Hutchison Telecoms Australia.

Hutchison Telecoms, which operates 3, Australia's first 3G provider, required a talent management system that would enable it to build and manage its talent pool, as well as measure and improve its talent acquisition processes. Hutchison selected Taleo to provide them with a talent management solution to improve the speed and efficiency of its recruitment process and gain greater control and visibility in sourcing top quality candidates in the highly competitive Australian market.

To complement its move to Taleo, Hutchison Telecoms Australia also launched a revamped careers website for 3 mobile at http://www.three.com.au .

3 provides 3G services to over 1.4 million customers in Australia and over 15.9 million worldwide. Hutchison Whampoa is the majority shareholder of Hutchison Telecoms Australia.

"It's vital that we can attract and retain great people at 3, and as effectively as we possibly can," said Steve Reid, head of HR and organization capability at Hutchison Telecoms Australia, 3 Mobile. "We selected Taleo because of its ability to integrate with our existing HR systems and processes, and interconnect with external parties. It also provides an intuitive and seamless user experience."

"3 Mobile is an internationally known brand, and we are working to leverage our consumer branding more strongly into our employment brand," Reid added. "We have a great story to tell as a business and a culture to match. As a dynamic organization that employs creative, talented and enthusiastic people, we will attract talent through advertising, word of mouth and a high number of employee referrals. We then aim to create an exceptional candidate experience supported by our interactive careers portal and new, online and streamlined recruitment process. Our organization is also committed to retaining our talent by encouraging internal mobility and ensuring the visibility of new opportunities to our employees."

Taleo senior vice president, international, Neil Hudspith comments, "I am delighted that the implementation at Hutchison Telecoms Australia has gone so well, and it is a pleasure to welcome them into our growing base of customers in Asia Pacific."
