Diversity & Inclusion

To maximise performance, engaging the entire workforce — in all its diversity — is a foundational imperative. Research shows organisations that unleash the potential of diverse talent innovate faster and see better business results. It starts by attracting proven talent with diverse perspectives, experiences and contributions, building and nurturing an environment where everyone can do their best work. We operate with a capacity-building mindset, based on the premise that all employees have the ability to grow, learn, and develop. Reducing bias and barriers to development significantly expands any employee’s productivity and level of contribution. Clearly, diversity and inclusion should be embedded within all of an organisation’s policies, practices and training.

Korn Ferry works with organisations to build workplaces that attract, retain and release the full potential of diverse talent. We provide access to the widest possible talent pools by removing bias from role design, recruitment processes and reward practices, creating compelling employee value propositions which appeal to diverse groups. We work with leaders to create cultures of inclusion where diversity is intrinsically valued; where every individual is able to contribute fully; and where talented people can advance through the organisation regardless of their gender or background. We work at a broad, strategic level creating the right environment for diverse workforces to succeed. And we work on specific D&I initiatives including differentiated programmes for under-represented employee groups.
