Korn/Ferry And SuccessFactors Establish Strategic Partnership To Develop Solutions For Global Organizations

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Korn/Ferry International (NYSE: KFY), a premier global provider of talent management solutions, and SuccessFactors, an SAP company, the leading provider of cloud-based business execution software, today announced a strategic partnership.  Together, Korn/Ferry and SuccessFactors plan to integrate Forte, Korn/Ferry's innovative career and leadership development application, with the SuccessFactors Business Execution (BizX) suite.  As part of the agreement, Korn/Ferry will join SuccessFactors' Partner Program as a Strategic SuccessSolution partner.

The partnership brings together Korn/Ferry's widely regarded and researched (for more than 20 years) intellectual property and talent management-focused content with SuccessFactors' BizX suite. With the integration of Forte with the BizX Suite, customers will have access to a unique, integrated offering that will deliver unmatched talent insights and analytics to global organizations, through the strategic partnership.

"We're partnering with SuccessFactors to leverage the breadth and depth of the BizX suite," said Gary Burnison, CEO of Korn/Ferry.  "Integrating Forte with SuccessFactors will provide a professional management application that integrates world-class content for executives at global organizations."

Korn/Ferry Forte, commercially available to customers in December 2012, is designed to help clients improve employee engagement and professional development by helping executive-level successors close professional development gaps for upward mobility and improved performance.  Forte automates, monitors, and advances the leadership development of global professionals and provides a complete career roadmap, available anytime, anywhere, from any device.  The application delivers Korn/Ferry's proven, science-based talent development tools, including solutions for performance management, career transition, learning, assessments, goal setting, and more.

"We are excited to be working with Korn/Ferry, a recognized global leader in talent management," said Mercedes Ellison, vice president, global alliances and channels, SuccessFactors. "This partnership will help us to further accelerate SuccessFactors' growth by offering customers a robust, mobile career development solution to assist executives in managing their career paths."

Through the partnership Korn/Ferry will also be implementing the Forte application, as well as the SuccessFactors BizX Suite for its own internal use, across its global operations.
