Korn Ferry Launches AI-Offering to Attract, Retain and Upskill Technology Professionals

New Solution Leverages Microsoft Teams for a Streamlined Experience

Los Angeles, Sept. 20, 2022 – Korn Ferry (NYSE: KFY) today announced it is expanding its digital offering by launching “Korn Ferry Career for tech professionals powered by Intelligence Cloud.” The AI-driven solution offers Chief Technology Officers and Chief Information Officers innovative approaches to developing, upskilling and ultimately retaining key tech talent across all levels of organizations.

The new offering allows technology leaders to benchmark their team, identify skill gaps, carve a path forward for tech talent, and deliver a progressive employee experience where their team and company move forward together.

Leveraging Korn Ferry Career, an application built within Microsoft Teams, Korn Ferry’s talent experience and development solution uses precise data and predictive insights to enhance the employee experience. Launching first for technology professionals, it standardizes tech roles mapped to Korn Ferry Success Profiles, opens new career paths for tech talent and enables leaders to drive individuals’ growth in alignment with their company’s goals, instantly seeing skill gaps in their current job architecture and much more.

“An employee’s intent to stay is largely driven by opportunities for meaningful skills development and opportunities to pursue traditional and non-traditional career opportunities,” said Byrne Mulrooney, CEO of Korn Ferry RPO and Digital. “Korn Ferry Career for tech helps leaders benchmark their organizations, identify talent within and help employees identify and hone needed skills with a fully unified experience delivered in the Microsoft Teams workflow.”

Korn Ferry’s new offering addresses a major challenge for CIOs, CHROs, and IT leaders as they find tech talent, evolve their skills, retain existing employees in IT and develop future IT careers.

“Finding, developing and retaining tech talent are critical needs in just about every company across all industries,” Mulrooney added.

Korn Ferry’s solution enables organizational modeling with job architecture, leveraging Korn Ferry Success Profiles to enable workforce mobility, robust talent assessment capabilities for soft and hard skills, and a set of prescriptive insights for employee skill and career development.

“Finding good talent is getting increasingly more difficult with the current demand being far greater than the supply. As a result, retaining existing talent is critical to meet business objectives and stay competitive. Providing a clear career path with supportive materials is a surefire way to show your team that you are invested in them for the long haul.” said Gretchen Horn, CTO at Brookfield Properties Retail Group.

“As CTO of the first Development on Demand company, the ability for our team to get feedback on their skills and to accelerate development of new skills allows us to take advantage of technology advances and deliver better solutions to our clients. Korn Ferry’s Career for tech solution is scalable and will drive the ongoing development of my team” said Johnny Halife, CTO at Southworks.

Korn Ferry continues to leverage its strategic partnership with Microsoft to deliver meaningful employee experiences.

“We are excited for the launch of Korn Ferry’s new solution built in Microsoft Teams to engage technology professionals in their career journey,” said Casey McGee, vice president of ISV Sales for Microsoft. “Korn Ferry’s new offering allows Microsoft clients to extend their use of Microsoft Teams and enhance the employee experience, while delivering valuable insights to leaders and employees.”
