LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 26, 2018--
Korn Ferry (NYSE: KFY), a global organizational consulting firm, today
announced the launch of Korn Ferry Perform on Salesforce AppExchange.
The application is part of a new suite of employee enablement and
professional development applications that Korn Ferry is developing to
put employees in control of their own career journeys.
The vision comes from a collaboration with Salesforce’s Office of
Innovation with the goal of treating employees more like customers while
empowering them to drive their careers. The app combines more than 70
years of Korn Ferry’s market leading research and people engagement
insights with the power of the Salesforce Platform to improve
productivity and drive better business results.

management, which may cause companies to have to refresh or disrupt
their current processes to ensure they have the talent necessary to
drive their business today and in the future,” said Byrne Mulrooney,
Chief Executive Officer, Korn Ferry RPO, Professional Search & Products.
Korn Ferry takes aim to address this challenge through an integrated
approach towards performance, learning, and development management. The
combined solution will allow for personalized development journeys that
are fit to an employee’s performance and development needs while aligned
to a company’s vision and career architecture. As well, the suite will
bring forth a development marketplace that allows an employee and
company to work in harmony for career mobility.
“Big data and science are disrupting everything, and employees are
demanding a more personalized experience in every aspect of their life.
Korn Ferry’s new talent enablement and development platform will help
employees put themselves in the driver’s seat of their career
development journey and ultimately drive better business results,” added
