Employees Finding Their Forte With Korn/Ferry International

LOS ANGELES, May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Korn/Ferry International (NYSE:KFY), a premier global provider of talent management solutions, has launched Forte – an innovative career development management tool intended to reinvigorate talent development in today's competitive business environment.

Created for maximum impact in a digital age, Forte was first showcased at HR Tech in October 2012. Today, both a browser and iPad version are available globally through Korn/Ferry and its subsidiary business, Futurestep. Forte gives organizations and employees simple and effective access to the best-in-class IP designed to support self-driven career development, anytime, anywhere.

Through an easy-to-use, attractive interface, Forte gives employees control over their personalized career development plan and maps out a clear path to the next level – focusing on the specific skills needed at each stage. Line manager input is facilitated at regular intervals to ensure alignment and buy-in from the business, harnessing the full potential of employee-driven development.

"It has never been more important for companies to demonstrate their commitment to employee development than it has today," explained Byrne Mulrooney, CEO of Futurestep. "Organizations that will succeed and achieve a competitive edge in their industries will put employee engagement at the heart of their business strategy. To do this they need to focus on the development of individuals and allow them to take control of their own careers. We have done this for Futurestep – deploying Forte across the business to ensure talent with the company is energized and driven to develop – and I think any business that wants its people to perform has to ensure the same thing."

RJ Heckman, President of Korn/Ferry Leadership and Talent Consulting, adds, "Korn/Ferry has assembled an impressive portfolio of IP, expertise and solutions. Forte brings the world-class IP acquired through our Lominger and PDI Ninth House businesses into a digital context, providing organizations with a powerful enterprise wide development tool."
