About Korn Ferry

Korn Ferry is a global organizational consulting firm. The firm helps clients synchronize strategy and talent to drive superior performance.

According to the firm’s most recent annual report: “We work with organizations to design their structures, roles, and responsibilities. We help them hire the right people to bring their strategy to life. And we advise them on how to reward, develop, and motivate their people.” The firm does this through its five solution sets: organizational strategy, assessment and succession, talent acquisition, leadership development, and rewards and benefits.

The firm’s history dates back to 1943, with the founding of Edward N. Hay & Associates, Management Consultants -- the forerunner to the Hay Group. In 1969, Korn Ferry was founded as an executive search firm, with the two firms joining forces in 2015 following Korn Ferry's $452 million buyout of the Hay Group.
