How to Execute the European Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) with Korn Ferry

If your work with Korn Ferry includes the processing of personal data governed by the GDPR, UK GDPR, or Swiss data protection law, a transfer mechanism is required to facilitate the processing of any such data outside of Europe. One option is to enter into the Standard Contractual Clauses adopted per the European Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/914 of 4 June 2021.

A copy of Korn Ferry’s pre-signed SCCs is available to download and counter-sign here.

Korn Ferry’s pre-signed SCCs describe the nature of the personal data processed during the provision of services and our organization’s data protection measures.

Our pre-signed SCCs include three sections which capture all of our services and utilize the SCC’s pre-written modules as follows:

  • Module 1: Professional & Executive Search services
  • Module 1: Korn Ferry Pay, Profile Manager, & Architect services
  • Module 2: Advisory, Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO), & Digital services

Please note, executing the SCCs simply permits a data transfer to occur, it does not require the transfer to occur.
