KORN/FERRY INTRODUCES MANAGEMENT ASSESSMENT OFFERING IN THE MIDDLE EAST
Korn/Ferry International (NYSE:KFY), the premier provider of executive search, outsourced recruiting and leadership development solutions, today announced the launch of its Strategic Management Assessment offering in the Middle East. This move comes in response to growing demand from local clients for a process to better enable them to identify, develop and maximize leadership talent.
Korn/Ferry’s proprietary assessment process evaluates critical skills, behaviors, values and emotional competencies against statistically validated “best in class” profiles, which reflect the skills and behaviors of the most successful individuals from Korn/Ferry’s global database of thousands of managers and executives. This process enables a client to benchmark its leadership team against top performing executives in selected functions and management levels, and offers thorough analysis of how well that leadership team “fits” with the organization’s current and future business strategy and culture.
“We believe the primary reason executives are unsuccessful on the job is not a lack of skills, but a lack of behavioral or value fit,” said Metin Mitchell, Managing Director of Korn/Ferry International, Middle East. “Therefore, it is imperative that companies incorporate objective, well-informed, insightful assessment decisions into their business strategies.”
Korn/Ferry’s assessment offering combines a validated online assessment with in-depth interviews conducted by behavioral professionals and industry and functional specialists, and measures skills and business acumen, leadership and thinking style, emotional competencies and motivation relative to the success requirements of a particular role and culture. This analysis forms the basis for preparing detailed feedback reports and development plans to clients that can be readily translated into team-based or one-on-one coaching.
“As Middle East businesses continue to grow and evolve, so do their talent management challenges,” said Mitchell. “I am pleased that local clients can now turn to Korn/Ferry to fulfill this need, in addition to the other human capital solutions they already look to us to deliver.”
