The world today runs on technology. But, with the digitalisation storm bringing a swirling cauldron of changes in the way businesses function, leaders often tend to forget what matters most when it comes to sustained growth. “People” essentially form the core of any company, helping them to harness the benefits of sophisticated technologies and optimise performance. But how to choose the right “people” that can add value to existing business performance? Korn Ferry has the answer. The company works hand-in-hand with organisations and helps them make critical decisions that trigger growth.
A global organisational consulting firm, Korn Ferry works with clients to design optimal organisation structures, roles, and responsibilities and helps them hire talents that best meet their business objectives. It even advises companies on how to keep their task force motivated by arranging for rewards while navigating through the complex labyrinth of their careers.
With the knowledge that expands the talent function from end-to-end, Korn Ferry helps businesses develop comprehensive, effective strategies that improve organisational structures, create attractive rewards and packages, and allows leaders to build thoughtful assessment and succession programs that close potential gaps to fuel sustainable growth. In essence, Korn Ferry puts people at the centre of everything it does. Its organisational consulting services target the most critical challenges like attracting, developing, motivating, and retaining talent to create the suitable structures that often cause hindrance in the business functioning. The company thereby banks on its unique set of skills and ingrained expertise to enable companies to realise their true potential and accordingly bring superior performance-oriented results.
The company drills down deep into organisational workflows to identify the gaps and equips leaders to bridge them successfully. Korn Ferry’s proactive approach educates professionals on the distance between where they exist in present times and where they can reach in the future. This way, Korn Ferry successfully measures, evaluates, and benchmarks both the skillset and mindset of employees and helps enterprises to understand them better. It allows business leaders to harness benefits from employee strengths and equally work on their weaknesses to derive maximum advantages.
Korn Ferry works towards making functional excellence the central idea behind clients’ success. The company understands the importance of having the right leaders in place that inspire teams and drive the performance that will play a critical part in turning your strategy into reality. It thereby infuses its functional know-how and solutions to allow functional leaders to put the right people with apt skill sets in areas where they belong. This leads to building stronger leadership roles that are efficient and strong enough to keep the workforce engaged and deliver transformational outcomes to pursue sustainable growth. With over 8,600 colleagues who serve clients in more than 50 countries, the company moves the needle in five core areas–organisational strategy, assessment and succession, talent acquisition, leadership development, and rewards and benefits. Besides, be it corporate affairs, human resources, financial officers, legal terms, marketing, risk management, and others, Korn Ferry’s detailed knowledge positions it to assist clients from any domain. “As an organisational consulting firm, we’re helping companies look at talent and strategy together, ensuring that they have the right people in the right places and are providing them with the right rewards,” says Gary Burnison, CEO, Korn Ferry. “We bring strategies to life by designing the organisational structure, helping companies hire, motivate, and hold on to the best people–at a time when the world is going through tremendous change,” concludes Burnison.
