Korn Ferry is a global organizational consulting firm that acquires talents for companies and trains those people to help develop their talents. But Korn Ferry is much more than just that. The company also helps design roles and responsibilities for clients, and advise them how to pay, develop, motivate and inspire their employees. "We are really the one consultant out there that does what we do," said Brian Bloom, VP of Global Benefits. That's not the only thing that separates them from the competition.
About 63% of the company's population is female, which is almost unheard of in the consultancy industry. In addition, the company was recognized for the second year in a row for scoring a perfect score of 100 on the 2020 Corporate Equality Index by the Human Rights Campaign. By showing they care about creating a diverse culture, Korn Ferry is on its way to becoming premiere career destination.
The values at Korn Ferry are a big part of every day. Since it was founded in 1969, the company has grown a lot. With more than 100 offices all over the world, the one thing that has remained consistent over the years is the values. The four values that tie together are:
These values really boil down to everyone's opinions matter at Korn Ferry. Every employee has the platform to be their true self. And with the breadth of training that is offered, you're given plenty of opportunities to improve your true self. "That's what korn ferry is all about," said Bloom.
The Korn Ferry team still carries on that entrepreneurial spirit from the days of being a startup to this day. "This allows colleagues to reach their full potential without being trapped in a box," said Bloom. "Our colleagues are always bringing their best to work and helping us live our values out everyday."
The employees at Korn Ferry are always seeking ways to challenge themselves. So when they provide an innovative talent solution to a clients' challenge, the impact they make is astronomical. That solution is really felt throughout the entire client's business. "Every individual really makes an impact through the work that they work," said Bloom.
Korn Ferry employees are people who are excited about opportunities to innovate. They want to have an impact on not only business but the world. With lots of freedom to find solutions their own way, Korn Ferry team members thrive on being flexible. They're ambitious and always finding ways to grow. And those employees are backed by leadership that believes in support. From creating a comfortable office space to providing benefits that reflect all of the hard work employees put in, the company is all about creating opportunities that allow employees to succeed. With this kind of support, the leadership at Korn Ferry believes every employee can be molded into a successful leader.
While being recognized for its commitment to inclusion again was huge for the company, it's more proud of the work that everyone chipped in to get there. "We really strive to empower others to bring their whole selves to work," said Bloom. "We want them to be able to speak openly and freely about how they feel. We provide a safe workplace so they can learn and drive performance." You know it's a safe space when employees feel comfortable enough to come out through a professional journey at work.
Even though the company is spread out all over the world, everyone still feels a sense of community. Through email, Microsoft Teams and being active on social media, employees actively keep up with one another. In the company's effort to keep everyone socially connected to their colleagues, the company hosts charity walks and runs throughout the year. "This brings everyone together to help build that Korn Ferry community," said Bloom.
Catering to 5 generations can be difficult when it comes to providing benefits that everyone will enjoy. But somehow Korn Ferry manages to do it, and do it well. They even recently relabeled the benefits to Korn Ferry Cares. "We can't be a premiere employer if our employees aren't safe, healthy and productive," said Bloom. "So we've come up with a creative benefits package that's designed to keep people healthy, present and safe."
The progressive package includes everything from online training to parental benefits. The One Voice online training is a unique perk that trains employees on everything Korn Ferry does. In addition, employees enjoy access to iAcademy for help learning about business solutions. The company was also recently recognized as one of the 100 Best Companies for Working Mothers by Working Mother. This was in part to the benefits that are offered mothers. Korn Ferry moms receive generous PTO after the birth of their child. And when they do decide to come back to work, they can ease into it with a flexible schedule. There are also nursing stations set up in every office to support moms once they come back to work. Everything about Korn Ferry screams premiere career destination.
