Korn Ferry Named a ‘Pacesetter” in ALM Intelligence’s Workforce Management Services 2020/2021 Report


Korn Ferry (NYSE: KFY) announced today that it has been named a “Pacesetter” in ALM Intelligence’s 2020/21 Workforce Management Services Research Report.

In its report, ALM Intelligence examines the strategies and service offerings of 19 providers identified as Market Leaders by the ALM Pacesetter Advisory Council. The report assesses these firms for their ability to deliver client impact in today’s challenging business environment, naming Korn Ferry as one of four “Pacesetters.”

The report states that, “Korn Ferry has evolved into a market-leading organizational strategy consultancy with a unique value proposition grounded in an understanding of the causal relationship between human behavior and organizational performance. This has taken new meaning amidst the COVID-19 crisis, driving increased demand for Korn Ferry’s ‘radically human transformation’ approach to workforce management.”

“There’s no doubt that the past year has been one of the most challenging times for business leaders as they transition to remote work, attempt to provide calm to a disrupted workforce and make seismic shifts in business strategies and processes,” said Laura Manson-Smith, Korn Ferry Global Leader, Organizational Strategy Consulting. “We’re honored to be named an ALM Pacesetter and be recognized for our radically human transformation approach that is still deeply rooted in our decades of proprietary IP and fierce focus on client delivery and success.”

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

When describing Korn Ferry, the Pacesetter report states, “The firm has shaped a portfolio of strategic acquisitions and innovations into a carefully curated ecosystem of consulting, digital and managed services that enable the potential of people and organizations. Over the past year, the firm has applied its innovation energies to build out the Korn Ferry Intelligence Cloudtm, an integrated digital platform of proprietary, internal and external market data.”

The report continues, “With its diverse resources, Korn Ferry leads the market in its ability to help clients craft strategies geared toward responding to immediate drivers and attaining long-term competitive advantage.”

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; the top overall engagement services provider in HRO Today’s ‘Baker’s Dozen’ Customer Satisfaction Ratings; a leader in NelsonHall’s ‘NEAT’ Vendor Evaluation for RPO; an RPO leader in Everest Group’s ‘PEAK’ Matrix Assessment; and best executive recruiting firm by Forbes.
