Korn Ferry Named a Leader in all Categories of NelsonHall’s ‘NEAT’ Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) Report

Firm Recognized for its Ability to Deliver on Clients’ Current and Future Needs

Los Angeles, July 9, 2019 — Korn Ferry (NYSE:KFY) today announced that it has been named a “Leader” in all categories of NelsonHall’s Vendor Evaluation and Assessment (NEAT) Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) report. The global business process outsourcing and IT services analyst firm recognized Korn Ferry as a Leader in its six categories:

  • Overall
  • Candidate Experience
  • Geographic Footprint and Scalability
  • Sourcing Candidates
  • Service Delivery
  • Technology Innovation

NelsonHall's NEAT is a tool buyers can use to evaluate vendors at the onset of the vendor selection process. The scoring is based on a combination of analyst assessment and feedback from interviewing vendor clients. Positioning as a "Leader" is based on vendors that exhibit both a high ability relative to their peers to deliver immediate benefit and a high capacity relative to their peers to meet their clients’ future requirements. Sourcing managers are able to input their own weightings, enabling them to use NEAT as an interactive tool, tailoring it to meet their own specific sourcing requirements and criteria.

“Korn Ferry has shown itself to be a consistent global leader in RPO, with a proven track record and a deep commitment to innovation, insight, and responsive client partnership," said Nikki Edwards, principal HR analyst with NelsonHall.

“We pride ourselves on working with our clients to help them solve their unique business challenges through a strategic approach to hiring,” said Jeanne MacDonald, global co-operating executive and president of global talent solutions for Korn Ferry’s RPO and Professional Search business. “We are honored to be named a leader in all areas of NelsonHall’s NEAT RPO report and will continue to strive to bring the best RPO solutions to our clients across the globe.”
