- Korn Ferry Also Named a Top Professional Search Firm -

For the fourth consecutive year, Korn Ferry (NYSE:KFY), has been recognized in Forbes Magazine as America’s best executive recruiting firm. Korn Ferry has captured this honor every year since Forbes and analytics firm Statista began compiling the annual rankings. The firm also is named in the rankings as a top professional search firm.

As covered in Forbes, Statista surveyed 25,000 recruiters and 5,000 job candidates and human resources managers who had worked with recruitment agencies over the last three years. Respondents were asked to nominate up to 10 recruiting firms in the executive and professional search categories. Firms could not nominate themselves and last year’s findings were considered. More than 17,000 nominations were collected, and firms with the most recommendations ranked highest.

“We’re honored to be named America’s best executive recruiter and a top professional search recruiter by Forbes,” said Gary Burnison, CEO, Korn Ferry. “As an organizational consulting firm, Korn Ferry is committed to enabling people and organizations to exceed their potential – and to exceed potential, people need an abundance of opportunity, development and sponsorship. That only happens when organizations are conscious, curious and serious about making their workforce more inclusive.”

In its article, Forbes noted that the labor market has changed dramatically in the last few months, and top firms have adapted. “Despite it all, there are still roles that need to be filled, and thanks to investments in technology, some of the biggest players in recruiting have been able to take their workforces completely remote and conduct business as usual,” the article stated. “That’s meant embracing videoconferencing and multiple rounds of virtual interviews.”
