LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Korn Ferry (NYSE:KFY) today announced that it has been named as a Leader in Everest Group’s Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) PEAK Matrix® 2021. This is the fourth consecutive year that Korn Ferry has been named as a Leader in RPO. Everest Group also recognized Korn Ferry as a “Star Performer” for demonstrating the most improvement year over year.

For the RPO Services PEAK Matrix, Everest Group analyzes the RPO landscape and the performance of 28 service providers, looking at these providers’ vision for RPO, their capacity to deliver on that vision, the impact that they have had on the wider market, including the scope of services offered and level of innovation and investments.

The report divides RPO providers into three main categories: Leaders, Major Contenders and Aspirants.

The report cites several advancements in Korn Ferry’s RPO offering that led to its positioning as a Leader and Star Performer, including registering double-digit growth in hires managed globally and investments in Centers of Excellence to improve internal capabilities in DE&I advisory and healthcare. In addition, the firm has strengthened its presence in the pharmaceutical and life sciences industry.

The report also points to the launching of Korn Ferry Intelligence Cloud platform for internal talent mobility and skills transformation.
