One assessment that efficiently informs your most important talent management decisions

This is Korn Ferry Assess, helping you predict whether your organization’s workforce is capable of delivering on its future strategy. Talent assessments illustrate an individual’s current capability and future potential. It measures the skill sets and mindsets of your entire workforce, from CEO to junior recruits, using just one assessment questionnaire.

Our assessments use Success Profiles to help you determine “what good looks like” in terms of the skills, behaviors and mindsets individuals need to have for any given role. This in turn helps you understand your Potential Gap–which, in talent terms, is the difference between the talent you have, and the talent you need to deliver your future strategy.

By understanding this gap, you’ll be able to create the optimal blueprint for developing talent at the individual, leadership and organizational level. You’ll also discover how to best upskill, reskill and recruit talent at scale to build a workforce for tomorrow and today.
