Korn Ferry recognized as a leader in global RPO by NelsonHall


Korn Ferry scores highly across the board in NelsonHall’s 2016 RPO NEAT report

LOS ANGELES – June 20th, 2016 – The Korn Ferry division of Korn Ferry (NYSE:KFY), the preeminent global people and organizational advisory firm, has been recognised as a global leader in Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) by leading outsourcing analysts NelsonHall.

In its RPO NEAT report, NelsonHall analyzes the performance of vendors offering RPO services. It assesses the capability of vendors across a range of criteria and business situations and identifies the best performing vendors overall.

In this year’s report, NelsonHall graded Korn Ferry highly throughout, rating it as a ‘Leader’ globally. The report measures vendors across three distinct market segments: Candidate Focus; Talent Management Focus; Global/Multi-Country Focus, as well as an additional Overall rating. Against all of these segments, including the Overall analysis, Korn Ferry scored highly.

“We measure organizations based on their ability to deliver immediate benefits and meet future client needs,” said Gary Bragar, HRO Research Director at NelsonHall. “With the investments that Korn Ferry has made in its global RPO offering in the last year, and high marks given by clients in NEAT interviews, we identified it as a Leader in every segment. Korn Ferry scored highly in areas including improved candidate experience, improved diversity of candidates/employees, the ability to offer broader talent services, and support for new country entry.”

“Businesses today work in a highly competitive ecosystem, and having the very best and skilled employees aids them in differentiating themselves against other players in their industry,” said Jeanne MacDonald, President of Global Talent Acquisition Solutions at Korn Ferry. “By providing our clients with insights, tools and methodologies we help them identify, recruit and retain talent to help them futureproof their organizations. Once again, Korn Ferry established all-time highs for the amount of RPO engagements we conducted during the fiscal year and we are thrilled that the work we do has been recognized by NelsonHall. We look forward to building on this success in the coming year.”
