LOS ANGELES, September 26, 2018 — Korn Ferry (NYSE: KFY), a global organizational consulting firm, today announced the launch of Korn Ferry Perform on Salesforce AppExchange. The application is part of a new suite of employee enablement and professional development applications that Korn Ferry is developing to put employees in control of their own career journeys.
The vision comes from a collaboration with Salesforce’s Office of Innovation with the goal of treating employees more like customers while empowering them to drive their careers. The app combines more than 70 years of Korn Ferry’s market leading research and people engagement insights with the power of the Salesforce Platform to improve productivity and drive better business results.
“Today’s highly digital world is having enormous implications on talent management, which may cause companies to have to refresh or disrupt their current processes to ensure they have the talent necessary to drive their business today and in the future,” said Byrne Mulrooney, Chief Executive Officer, Korn Ferry RPO, Professional Search & Products.
Korn Ferry takes aim to address this challenge through an integrated approach towards performance, learning, and development management. The combined solution will allow for personalized development journeys that are fit to an employee’s performance and development needs while aligned to a company’s vision and career architecture. As well, the suite will bring forth a development marketplace that allows an employee and company to work in harmony for career mobility.
“Big data and science are disrupting everything, and employees are demanding a more personalized experience in every aspect of their life. Korn Ferry’s new talent enablement and development platform will help employees put themselves in the driver’s seat of their career development journey and ultimately drive better business results,” added Mulrooney.
“We are happy to welcome Korn Ferry onto AppExchange, as they provide customers with an exciting new way to manage the employee performance and development experience,” said Mike Wolff, SVP, ISV Sales, Salesforce. 'The exponential growth of AppExchange underscores the enormous opportunity the entire Salesforce ecosystem has in creating cutting-edge solutions and driving customer success.'
