-Rankings Released by Forbes Magazine and Analytics Firm Statista-
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 27, 2019--
Ferry (NYSE:KFY) was recognized today in Forbes Magazine in their
annual ranking of America’s best recruiting firms. Korn Ferry is named
as America’s best executive search firm and a top professional search
firm. Forbes worked with analytics firm Statista to compile the rankings.
covered in Forbes, analytics firm Statista surveyed 25,000
recruiters and 5,000 job candidates and human resources managers who had
worked with recruitment agencies over the last three years. Respondents
were asked to nominate up to 10 recruiting firms in the executive and
professional search categories. Firms could not nominate themselves and
last year’s findings were considered. More than 17,000 nominations were
collected, and firms with the most recommendations ranked highest.
“We’re honored to be named America’s best executive recruiter and a top
professional search recruiter by Forbes,” said Gary Burnison, CEO, Korn
Ferry. “Our purpose is to enable people and organizations to exceed
their potential. At the same time, we also are redefining an industry.
We are building a firm that has the scale and offerings that synchronize
our clients’ strategy with their organization and people to help them
drive superior performance.”
Providing further insight on the rankings, the Forbes article states:
“To determine whether or not a candidate might be a fit, Korn Ferry
turns to intellectual property, specifically a proprietary database of
50 million executive assessments conducted by the firm over the years.
It may sound counterintuitive, looking to technology to learn about who
someone is as a person. But in doing so, Korn Ferry gleans a unique
perspective on candidates, an unbiased one.”
