Futurestep, a Korn/Ferry Company (NYSE: KFY), today announced the opening of its newest research center in Shanghai, China. For Futurestep’s global and Asia Pacific RPO clients, the center will provide crucial services, including research, name generation, sourcing and screening, market mapping, competitive intelligence, and in-time outsourced recruitment administration.
The opening will provide an important resource for addressing the tremendous growth in demand in China and across Asia for Futurestep’s Strategic RPO services, as well as its complete portfolio of Talent Acquisition solutions. While Futurestep has talent acquisition research and support resources around the world, the opening of the Shanghai facility also represents a new branding approach for the company’s research centers.
“The global research center concept is a key part of our strategy for competing in the global RPO market,” said Futurestep CEO Robert McNabb. “By providing strategic sourcing support, it enables our RPO teams to expand their level of service to meet market demands. It is a cost-effective solution that provides a broader reach into passive and active candidate pools, resulting in improved quality and client satisfaction.”
The Shanghai Global Research Center represents Futurestep’s commitment to growing its presence as a truly global provider of Strategic RPO services. In addition to its current lineup of global locations and support resources on four continents, Futurestep plans to expand its reach with multiple new global research centers opening in key markets over the next two years.
