Briefings for the Boardroom
Bonus Planning for the Long Term
After rarely adjusting incentive structures, boards in the age of COVID are being forced to rethink far more long term. It’s not an easy shift.
Our assessments give you a clear picture of the talent and the potential in your organization right now.
You need to spot your rising stars, identifying the skills you have and the skills you need. Our assessments give you a clear picture of the talent and potential in your organization right now. In fact, we’re known for uncovering future leaders, often before your people or their managers spot the potential themselves. Here’s how we uncover your talent.
Our Korn Ferry Intelligence Cloud draws on our data, your data and over fifty years of professional and leadership assessment expertise to give you a complete picture of the talent your business needs. Our Success Profiles tell you what each person should bring to fit your culture, get behind your strategy and get ahead. We use this as the benchmark for your assessment but you can also use it to inform development, succession, deployment, and selection.
We’ve got decades of leadership analysis and benchmarking behind us, so we know a future leader when we see one and we can also tell you who is ready for the next step today. We measure for four things:
Our leadership assessments come in many forms—from high volume, high tech self-assessments via Korn Ferry Assess, right through to customized, personal evaluations led by our consultants.
To give you the full picture, we look at the whole person. That means understanding competencies, traits, drivers, and experiences—four elements proven to be good predictors of engagement, productivity, and leadership effectiveness.
For each assessment, we draw on multiple methodologies including: behavioral and market interviews, team and peer 360 feedback, online self-assessments, Situational Judgment Tests (SJTs) and simulations. After every assessment, or combination of assessments, we report back on what we find, no matter how many people we’re assessing.
Our professional assessments give the insights you need to build future sales stars, project managers, world-class customer service teams, and more. Once we agree on what success profiles look like for you in a specific area of the business or team, we measure your people against them using Korn Ferry Assess. Our tech-based tools work whether you’re benchmarking two people or 2,000. By looking at skillsets and mindsets we help you recognize strengths and weaknesses in your teams, so it’s easier to plan everyone’s next steps. That might mean preparing people for promotion, personalizing their training program or moving them into completely new roles to make the most of their skills.
Everyone who takes our assessments gets a personal feedback report. And managers get a report on their whole team—making it even easier to spot gaps to close.
Korn Ferry Assess also identifies each individual’s learning style. This enables us to develop personalized learning journeys at scale that drive sustained behavior change. And teams can access all our tools on one platform, wherever they are in the world.
