The insights you need to develop skills, deliver results and build a strong organisation.

HR is changing.

Our research agenda focuses on the hot topics and longer term challenges, including HR transformation, HCM (Human Capital Management), Cloud HCM, recruitment, performance and talent management.

With 20 years of insight into learning technologies and innovation, Fosway continues to explore learning trends and the realities they represent for organisations today. Our analysts are currently researching key areas that will impact L&D practitioners and learning strategies, including gamification, next generation LMS and digital content strategies. This forward research agenda is in addition to ongoing research around our unique 9-Grid™ analysis of learning providers.

This new and exciting part of Fosway formalises our broader view of the trends and underlying business drivers for change and transformation within organisations today.
