Futurestep – A Global Provider of RPO and More

We meet with executives of Futurestep, a Korn Ferry International firm, at the recent HR Week show in New York City. We received a fairly complete briefing and developed a research note on the firm and its offerings.

Here is an excerpt from the Prognosis section of the report:

Futurestep is not a traditional HR Outsourcing (HRO) supplier either. Where most HRO providers offer significant back office processing capabilities, they often provide more minimal recruiting and talent acquisition capabilities and intellectual property.  That said, Futurestep is a more knowledge-based RPO and not in the same category as HRO providers. We are generally very positive on Futurestep because:

  • the company can leverage the Korn/Ferry brand, pipeline and intellectual property assets. All of these leverage points give the company an invaluable advantage over standalone RPO firms.
  • companies that need RPO often need more than just a technology solution provider.  Futurestep provides a services rich and data rich solution.
  • several of the differentiators mentioned earlier in this report are truly unique to Futurestep.”
