LOS ANGELES, August 23, 2011 -

Futurestep, a Korn/Ferry Company (NYSE: KFY) specializing in high impact talent solutions, today announced that it was named by HRO Today Magazine as one of the leading RPO providers in its 2011 industry Baker’s Dozen listing and clinching the coveted top placing in the ‘Breadth of Service’ category.

The annual list, published by HRO Today Magazine, is developed based on a survey of RPO buyers and experts from across the industry. Provider rankings are based on quality of service, breadth of service and size of deals. This year, Futurestep was named in the top ten of several categories, including, the ‘Enterprise RPO providers’ list, reflecting growth in demand and customer satisfaction for its RPO solutions, and the ‘Global Market Leaders with Multiple Country Programmes’ category; highlighting Futurestep’s global capabilities and impressive global client base.

“Futurestep’s evolution and ascent continues as they have once again improved their ranking on the HRO Today RPO Bakers Dozen Enterprise Providers list,” said Elliot Clark, CEO of HRO Today Magazine. “Futurestep has a clearly defined strategy and execution, excellent leadership and great customer service. Their extensive global infrastructure allows them to compete for cross continental programs and they are well positioned to compete for any upcoming RPO engagement that is in the market.”

“We’re very pleased to top the breadth of services listing and hear from buyers that they recognize the full scope of our services,” said Futurestep Chief Executive Officer Byrne Mulrooney. “RPO is just the beginning, the services that can be rolled out to help a business are expanding more and more. That’s why we’re so pleased with topping the ‘Breadth of Services’ list; it shows we and the Korn/Ferry group have a portfolio of high impact recruitment services that our customers genuinely value.”

“The Baker’s Dozen listing is significant because it is based on the thoughts of the people who matter, the buyers,” he added. “We’ve continued to expand and develop our offering over the last twelve months, so to see us further improve in the rankings this year is extremely satisfying.”

“With every year that RPO matures, more companies are re-examining the way they hire, manage their workforce and prepare for tomorrow’s needs. Futurestep offers a flexible, cost-effective approach to compete for and manage that talent, allowing businesses to secure the most impactful talent, at the right time and cost.”
