Cross-European research opens to deliver unique HR technology insights

Cirencester, UKLearning NewsFosway

The 2016 HR Realities research launches this week, continuing the success of the only cross-European insights into HR technology and its impact on the future of work. Led by Europe’s #1 HR and learning analyst, Fosway Group, in partnership with HRN, the world’s largest corporate HR network, the research is in its third year and is open to HR professionals across the continent.

The data generated by the HR Realities research, takes a uniquely European perspective. It is designed to take into account the cultural nuances and regional subtleties that inform HR practices across a geography that inherently means working with multiple locations, legislations, currencies and languages.

With hundreds of enterprise organisations participating, the research has highlighted HR technology priorities for the year ahead. The current reports focus on key challenges including Cloud HR, a fragmented systems landscape and analytics.

David Wilson, CEO of Fosway Group, comments, ‘Now in its third year, this research continues to provide a unique data set around the realities of HR technology in Europe. As solutions evolve, HR professionals need to be able to fully evaluate the optimum tools and technologies that will support their next generation HR strategies. This research provides invaluable insights for the HR community both in Europe, and beyond.’

Peter Russell of HRN continues, ‘As the HRN network continues to grow, it is vital to us to support HR professionals contending with the complexities of selecting, implementing and managing an array of technology-led solutions. These technologies should augment what they are doing, not become a challenge in and of themselves. The aim of our ongoing research with Fosway Group is to discover the trends and insights that will help HR technology succeed in practice.’

The 2016 research is now open with all respondents immediately eligible for discounted attendance at HR Tech World Congress in Paris on 25 and 26 October 2016. In addition, all respondents will receive early, priority access to the research reports when they are published at the end of the year, in readiness for 2017.
