DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
CREATING OPPORTUNITY THROUGH INCLUSION


To maximize performance, engaging the entire workforce—in all its diversity—is a foundational imperative. Research shows that organizations that unleash the potential of diverse talentinnovate faster and see better business results.It starts by attracting proven talent with diverse perspectives, experiences, and contributions—then building and nurturing an environment where everyone can do their best work. We operate with a capacity-building mindset, based on the premise that all employees have the ability to grow, learn, and develop. Reducing bias and barriers to development significantly expands any employee’s productivity and level of contribution. Clearly, diversity and inclusion should be embedded within all of an organization’s policies, practices, and training.

Korn Ferry works with organizations to build workplaces that attract, retain and release the full potential of diverse talent. We provide access to the widest possible talent pools by removing bias from role design, recruitment processes and reward practices and creating compelling employee value propositions that appeal to diverse groups. We work with leaders to create cultures of inclusion where diversity is intrinsically valued; where every individual is able to contribute fully; and where talented people can advance through the organization regardless of their gender or background. We work at a broad, strategic level creating the right environment for diverse workforces to succeed. And we work on specific D&I initiatives including differentiated programs for under-represented employee groups.

Organization Effectiveness

At the highest level of business, an efficient operating model is the cornerstone of successful strategy execution. It translates strategic intent into a blueprint for how the organization will deliver value. It includes design principles for how the organization will operate, how decisions will be made and what behaviors will drive performance. An effective operating model enables organizations to deliver growth and scalability, improve the customer experience, drive operational efficiency and develop a sustainable business.

At Korn Ferry we work with leaders to first clarify their strategy, then cascade the results into an operating model, organizational structure and processes. We leverage industry-leading tools and methodologies and work collaboratively with leadership to:

  • Align leaders around a shared and compelling purpose.
  • Clarify the strategy so it's fit-for-purpose and can be implemented.
  • Develop an operating model that manages competing priorities and ensures that everything the business does adds value to the bottom line.
  • Design a detailed organizational structure that aligns with the operating model and focuses people on doing the right things.
  • Develop effective governance processes that help the organization work.
