Korn/Ferry, SuccessFactors Partner to Integrate Leadership Development App

Los Angeles — Oct. 9

Korn/Ferry and SuccessFactors plan to integrate Forte, Korn/Ferry’s 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 research and 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 an offering that will aim to deliver talent insights and analytics to global organizations.

Korn/Ferry Forte, which will be commercially available to customers in December, 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 aims to provide a career roadmap, available anytime, anywhere, from any device.

The application also aims to deliver Korn/Ferry’s science-based talent development tools, including services for performance management, career transition, learning, assessments, goal setting and more.

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.
