Korn Ferry Recognized as a Leader in RPO in Latest Everest Group PEAK Matrix


Los Angeles, April 24, 2019 — Korn Ferry (NYSE:KFY) today announced that it has been named as a Leader in Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) in Everest Group’s report, Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) – Service Provider Landscape with Services PEAK Matrix™ Assessment 2019. This is the second year in the row that Korn Ferry has been named as a Leader in RPO.

For the PEAK Matrix, premier research company Everest Group analyzes the RPO landscape and the performance of 26 service providers, looking at these providers’ vision for RPO, their capacity to deliver on that vision, and the impact that they have had on the wider market. It also takes into account approximately 3,000 third-party RPO deals as well as inputs from RPO buyers. It divides RPO providers into three main categories: Leaders, Major Contenders and Aspirants.

The report underlines Korn Ferry’s innovation in technology, its consulting expertise, and its global flexibility as key factors in its leadership position.

“Korn Ferry RPO’s key differentiator is its ability to customize its offerings while servicing clients across multiple regions,” said Everest Group Vice President Arkadev “Arko” Basak. “Its best-in-class consulting expertise and significant investments in innovative technologies enable it to act as a strategic partner in its clients’ quest for superior recruitment outcomes and better candidate fit.”

Korn Ferry’s flexibility is rooted in an offering that can help businesses to address their talent needs in a strategic way, explained Jeanne MacDonald, global co-operating executive and president of global talent solutions for Korn Ferry’s RPO and Professional Search business.

“Businesses are encountering a dynamic environment, where technology is shaking up what it means to be successful,” said MacDonald. “It’s never been more important to have access to the right talent – not just people who have the technical skills to push forward important changes in businesses now, but also those who can adapt over the long-term and evolve their capabilities. RPO can enable businesses to get this mix right and thrive in the present and future.”
