TALX Launches New Learning Solutions Aimed At Reducing Unemployment Costs For Employers

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 3, 2005--TALX Corporation (Nasdaq:TALX), a leading provider of human resource and payroll related services, today announced the launch of new electronic-based learning solutions that deliver training to front line management as part of TALX UC eXpress unemployment cost management services.

These new learning solutions provide employers with on-demand, training capabilities for their first-level management. Designed to help employers further reduce their unemployment costs, these solutions include the convenience of desktop learning with the ability to track progress and effectiveness of the training. These comprehensive and systematic learning solutions enhance the skills needed at critical places within an organization to improve efficiencies and increase margins.

"Controlling unemployment costs is everyone's job," says Ed Chaffin, president of TALX UC eXpress. "Whether you're a manager working at the headquarters location or a front line supervisor, it is critical to understand the unemployment process. That understanding will significantly reduce costs for the organization as a whole. TALX now delivers high-value content on demand where it's needed the most - in the field."

TALX developed the new learning solutions based on input from employers themselves. Clients had requested training solutions that would increase compliance and improve their ability to manage unemployment claims. As an industry leader in controlling and reducing unemployment costs, TALX now becomes a single source to identify areas for improvement as well as disseminate cost-saving training and education to individual locations to reduce unemployment costs.
