About Korn Ferry Hay Group

Korn Ferry Hay Group is a consulting firm that specializes in all things related to the workforce and organizational design. From compensation data and rewards strategy to strategic workforce planning, employee engagement and work design consulting, the company is a global powerhouse in its field.

The firm's history dates back to 1943, with the founding of Edward N. Hay & Associates, Management Consultants-the forerunner to the Hay Group. In 1969, Korn Ferry was founded as an executive search and recruitment firm, with the two firms joining forces in 2015 following Korn Ferry's $452 million buyout of the Hay Group. That move created, at a stroke, one of the world's largest HR consulting organizations.
