Partnership With SAP- Korn Ferry has joined the SAP PartnerEdge program. As organizations seek to compete, thrive and even just survive in today’s disruptive environment, Korn Ferry will collaborate with SAP to improve how organizations develop, engage, motivate and inspire their workforces. It is another recent move by the world’s largest search firm to move further beyond its core business.
By combining Korn Ferry’s IP and advisory work with Human Experience Management (HXM) solutions from SAP, the program allows organizations to access employee sentiment insights and take action to drive engagement and increase productivity.
According to Korn Ferry research, organizations with the highest levels of employee engagement generally have two times annual net profit and 2.5 times greater revenue growth than their equivalents with the lowest levels of engagement.
Korn Ferry is already expanding its employee experience (EX) capabilities by strengthening its ties across SAP. In addition to joining SAP PartnerEdge, it is an existing member of the Qualtrics Partner Network (QPN). The alliance between Korn Ferry, Qualtrics and SAP will help organizations listen to employees, understand sentiment, and take informed actions on what employees need and value in ways that fundamentally drive business performance.
Using technology, such as Qualtrics EmployeeXM, and expertise to collect and interpret what employees are thinking, Korn Ferry said organizations can identify what aspects of the employee experience must change to accelerate individual and organizational performance.
“Human experience management enables companies to look beyond the ‘what’ of talent management—such as turnover and employee absences—and understand the reasons ‘why’ employees may lack engagement or experience poor productivity,” said Byrne Mulrooney, Korn Ferry CEO, professional search, RPO and products. “Through this alliance, we are able to combine leading solutions and technology from Qualtrics and SAP SuccessFactors with Korn Ferry’s intellectual property and end-to-end talent solutions that drive individual and organizational performance.”
