LOS ANGELES, June 22, 2015 – Korn Ferry (NYSE:KFY), the preeminent authority on leadership and talent, today announced the global rollout of Korn Ferry’s Four Dimensional Executive Assessment, the firm’s most credible tool yet for capturing, synthesizing and visualizing unparalleled insight on talent, and delivering it to global organizations on any tablet or computer in real time.
The innovative tool is the first offspring of KF4D, launched last year and believed to be the worlds most sophisticated and accurate talent intelligence platform. KF4D’s statistically validated best-in-class profiles – for any professional role, in any industry –
are drawn from Korn Ferry’s pool of more than 2.5 million assessed executives.
“With Korn Ferry’s Four Dimensional Executive Assessment, we have consolidated a half century of assessing executives, the leading industrial psychologists and statisticians and advanced predictive analytics, to provide clients with an unparalleled view of talent,” said Mike Distefano, Chief Marketing Officer, Korn Ferry, President, Korn Ferry Institute. “Through this capability, organizations have the potential to know how well new hires will fit and perform, before they even start – dramatically reducing failed hires and increasing promotability and overall fit to company culture.”
Developed by a team of social scientists at the Korn Ferry Institute, the firm's corporate think tank, KF4D is broken down into four dimensions – traits, competencies, experiences, and drivers.
How KF4D Works
Global organizations take the assessment to determine their organizational culture and understand what they truly need from their current and future executives. Those results then influence best-in-class benchmarks drawn from Korn Ferry’s database of 2.5 million leaders to determine the executive profile that would thrive in the position.
After candidate assessments are completed, hiring managers receive a customized behavioral interview guide that provides deep insight focused on each candidate – identifying everything from leadership gaps and developmental opportunities to cultural fit and learning agility.
The firm’s currently deploying the Four Dimensional Executive Assessment into their Professional Recruitment, and RPO solutions and plans to offer the assessment as a SaaS solution later this year.
