Fosway Group, formerly Elearnity, launches new HR analyst practice as it reveals new brand

Cirencester, UKLearning NewsFosway

Fosway Group is the new home of Europe’s leading independent research, analysis and insight for next generation HR and learning. Formerly Elearnity, Fosway Group retains its existing expert analyst team, whilst expanding with a new HR analyst practice. Its new forward HR research agenda includes key themes on HR transformation, human capital management, Cloud HCM, talent management and acquisition. Fosway is also marking the launch of the new practice and its new brand with the release of its updated 2015 9-Grid™ for integrated talent management.

The new HR practice formalises Fosway’s broader view of the trends and underlying business drivers for change and transformation within organisations today. An extended library of research will be added to the existing 18+ years’ of insight and resources. The rebrand reflects the company’s new remit across the full spectrum of next generation HR, talent and learning, and consolidates its position as the #1 HR analyst in Europe.

David Wilson, CEO of Fosway Group comments, ‘The launch of our new practice is recognition of the analyst work we have been doing in HCM and talent for a number of years. HR is undergoing a radical change, which is profoundly impacting its strategy, technology and processes. The lack of European-focused analysis and insight is a significant challenge for companies, and we intend to address this.’

He continues, ‘The new Fosway brand demonstrates our commitment to this broader remit and is a natural evolution of our existing research and analysis with Europe’s leading companies. And like the Roman road we draw our name from, our clients will find that we’re unusually direct. We don’t have a vested interest in their technology or consulting choices. They can depend on us to tell them what they need to know to succeed.’

Fosway marks the launch of the new brand and HR analyst practice, with the release of the updated 2015 9-Grid™ for integrated talent management. The new 9-Grid™ illustrates the progress of key providers in the European market in the last 12 months, including some new additions. The model helps buyers understand which solutions are best for their requirements, based on five dimensions of potential, performance, presence, total cost of ownership, and future trajectory. 9-Grid™ is the only market analysis of this kind focused on organisations in Europe.

The updated 9-Grid™ also follows the announcement of Fosway's further research collaboration with HRN Europe, the organisers of HR Tech Europe and HR Tech World Congress. Building on existing published research conducted by Fosway and HRN Europe in 2014, the research is conducted with senior HR professionals across Europe, and will further explore the critical realities of HR technology and trends in Europe.
