With 7,000 employees and 88 office rooms, Korn Ferry International is the
world’s leading consultancy for Executive Search and Talent Management.
Through the takeover of the globally-active business consultancy Hay
Group, the number of employees in Germany has now almost doubled. Good
reason to bring the two areas of business together in one location. The
property “Gentle” in Frankfurt am Main was chosen as the new headquarters
for Germany. In addition to the search for a suitable office space, it was
then also primarily a question of fulfilling the future requirements of
the professional world. Across an area of 5,500 m², Korn Ferry has created
a carefully considered concept for the space which aims to provide its
employees with a harmonious working environment. The design goal of the
architect was to reconcile both minimalistic design and optimal acoustics.
The highly effective soundproofing properties of the floor coverings from
OBJECT CARPET – with BlackThermo®Filz Akustik Plus backing – make a
considerable contribution to promoting the well-being of the employees.
