Korn Ferry Named a ‘Pacesetter’ in ALM Intelligence’s Employee Well-Being 2021/2022 Report

Los Angeles, March 2, 2022 – Korn Ferry (NYSE: KFY) announced today that it has been named a “Pacesetter” in ALM Intelligence’s 2021/2022 Employee Well-Being Research Report. Pacesetter is the report’s highest recognition.

The report states that, “Korn Ferry sees employee well-being as central to a successful workforce management and organization transformation strategy but grounds its approach in data, both from employees and markets. Korn Ferry takes a top-down, bottom-up and peer-to-peer approach. The firm works to create a culture that triangulates between employees, the organization and leadership, with the ultimate aim being optimizing the employee experience.”

In its report, ALM Intelligence examines the strategies and service offerings of 17 providers identified as Market Leaders by the ALM Pacesetter Advisory Council. The report assesses these firms for their ability to focus on employee well-being amid a challenging environment marked by the Great Resignation, remote working models and overall employee burnout. Korn Ferry was named as one of five “Pacesetters.” 

The report highlights Korn Ferry’s work with clients as well as the firm’s internal initiatives.

“We are honored to be named an ALM Pacesetter and be recognized for our transformation approach that is still deeply rooted in our decades of proprietary IP and fierce focus on employee well-being and being radically human, which leads to client success,” said Laura Manson-Smith, Korn Ferry Global Leader, Organizational Strategy Consulting.

The report evaluates the providers based on five Pacesetter criteria: business model, value proposition, service delivery, client enablement and brand eminence. 

During the past year, Korn Ferry has also earned several other industry accolades, including being named a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for sales training; an RPO Star Performer and leader in Everest Group’s ‘PEAK’ Matrix Assessment; and best executive recruiting firm by Forbes.
