Cirencester, UKLearning NewsFosway

Interim data collected in April 2020 suggests 100% of HR functions have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, Zukunft Personel has partnered with Fosway Group, Europe’s #1 HR Industry Analyst to understand the immediate challenges, as well as looking ahead to HR investment, headcount and priorities over the coming 12 months. CEO David Wilson, will exclusively reveal the results of the 2020-21 HR Realities research for the first time at ZP 365 Virtual HR week next month.


The annual HR Realities research is now in its seventh year and is open to HR professionals across Europe. With an average of over 500 participants annually from large enterprise organisations across Europe, this research informs HR professionals and the wider HR tech market year on year.

David Wilson’s keynote session on 15th October is titled ‘Being successful in a post-pandemic world’ and will explore:

  • What’s changing in HR tech as a result of the crisis
  • The tools and technology being used by leading HR organisations across Europe
  • HR investment trends – the what, where and why
  • Post-pandemic priorities and key HR skills for the future

David Wilson, CEO of Fosway, commented, ‘The HR Realities research supports European HR leaders and professionals in making informed decisions around their HR strategy and investment by providing a real, independent and relevant picture of HR today – and what it needs to have in place to support the organisations and the workforce of tomorrow. We are delighted to partner with Zukunft Personal this year as the input of the HR community is invaluable, especially as organisations move forward in what’s been an unprecedented year. Fosway’s focus has always been on providing up-to-the-minute data and pragmatic advice – and there has probably never been more need of that than now.’

Christiane Nagler, Group Director of Zukunft Personal, said, ‘This is an important time for HR as it has been pivotal to organisations navigating the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis. We are pleased to be able to work with Fosway Group to capture up-to-the minute insights around HR’s experiences and share them back with our audience at our virtual event next month. We look forward to David’s keynote providing valuable input into our attendees strategy and decision making for the year ahead.’

The 2020-21 research is still open - don't miss your chance to take part.
