Balancing Art and Science
Next comes the Science – Korn/Ferry’s approach to evaluating top talent by seamlessly integrating scientific research with our vast practical experience. Providing a more complete view of the candidate than is otherwise possible, our proprietary tools are proven to generate better results in identifying the right person for the position. Our methodology includes:
• Using a competency-based framework that provides a clear and common language to help clients identify desired skills and behaviors
• Administering our behavioral mapping tool – Search Assessment℠ – to prospective candidates, providing clients with insights into how they will lead, how they will approach and solve complex problems, what their emotional profile is likely to be and what motivates them to succeed. Organizations that utilize Search Assessment℠ to choose executives are eight times more likely to get a candidate that they would not only keep, but soon promote.
