Success at work.

That’s what we’re all about.


As the preeminent global people and organizational advisory firm, we know how to spot people with potential. In fact, everything we do is about empowering the success of individuals so that we can shape the success of the different places where they put their skills to work. And it all starts with our own people.

We help our clients achieve superior performance by addressing the people and organizational requirements needed to succeed.

And we’re home to Futurestep, the global industry leader in high-impact talent acquisition solutions. Futurestep offers fully customized, flexible services to help organizations meet their specific recruitment needs.

Wherever you join us, you’ll find that this is an inspiring, stimulating environment that will bring out the best in you and enable you to build a truly fulfilling career.

We’ll make sure we ignite your talent too.

Who we look for

If you’d relish endless opportunities to innovate, you have what it takes to make an immediate impact, and you want to work with the best, there’s a good chance you’re exactly who we’re looking for. You’ll need to be comfortable with having plenty of freedom to chart your own course and being exposed to constant change – flexibility is key.

What we offer

We expect a lot from our people. But we also believe in giving a lot back. We’re passionate about creating an environment where talent thrives, where excellence is always recognized and rewarded, and where every contribution matters. You’ll be empowered to share your ideas, and to follow them through. And because we’re all about taking talent further, you can look forward to exceptional training and development opportunities.

Training and development

We want to provide you with the opportunities you need to develop your potential and realize your ambitions. That’s why we’ll make sure you enjoy continuous learning – from your colleagues, from on-the-job experience, and from more formal programs. Through the Korn Ferry Institute, you’ll also have access to a plethora of highly valuable resources, including the industry’s top intellectual property around talent development.

As a global business, our benefits packages can vary from country to country, but we always strive to provide our employees with a variety of high quality options. In the United States, full-time regular Korn Ferry employees have access to a wide range of benefits, including health, dental, vision, life, and 401(k). We provide performance-related cash bonuses too.

Culture and values

No matter what the assignment, we mindfully interact with candidates in peer-to-peer relationships that foster respect, transparency, and trust. Creativity; Collaboration; Performance; Inclusivity; Integrity; and Agility are a few of the things that make our culture so special. Everything we do is also underpinned by our four core values:
