HORSHAM, Pa. (October 7, 2015) – Human Resource Executive® magazine, the premier publication focused on strategic issues in HR, today announced the ten winners of its annual Top HR Products of 2015 Awards. The winning organizations will be recognized at a special luncheon to be held on Monday, October 19, 2015 during the 18th Annual HR Technology Conference & Expo® at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

For the past 27 years, the editors of Human Resource Executive have recognized the newest HR product innovations that are transforming how key HR tasks and processes are done. Following the extensive evaluation of each solution, winning products were selected based on their level of innovation, value added to the HR function, intuitiveness for the user and ability to deliver on what they promise. After considering many strong submissions, the editorial team selected the following 10 solutions as the Top HR Products of 2015:

Korn Ferry’s Four Dimensional Executive Assessment
Korn Ferry, Los Angeles
Korn Ferry’s 4D Executive Assessment is a tool for assessing executive job candidates and determining their fit for particular positions and organizations.

It bases its predictions on approximately 8.5 million executive and professional candidate profiles, as well as the results of 2.5 million assessments.
