Next Generation HR

Welcome to Fosway Group’s new HR analyst practice. 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. The lack of European-focused analysis and insight is a significant challenge for companies, and we intend to address that.

Fosway Group’s Next Generation HR analyst practice provides independent research and advice on key trends, underlying business drivers and outcomes. We take an integrated view of HR covering disciplines including talent management, succession planning, recruitment, performance, and compensation and benefits. We provide the insights you need to transform your HR strategies, processes and technologies.

Our research is dedicated to the analysis and understanding of what is happening within HR, how that impacts organisations today and establishing a next generation approach for the future. The Fosway research agenda focuses on business critical topics and key challenges, including HR transformation, Human Capital Management, Cloud HCM, integrated talent management, and global payroll.


Fosway’s research collaboration with HR Tech World is now in its fifth year. Building on our existing published research, the 2016-17 results are now live for the first time. Conducted with over 500 senior HR professionals across Europe, it uncovers their key business drivers and challenges plus takes a deeper look at HR technology and first hand customer experiences.

The 2017-18 research is now open and you can take part here.

The current results launched at HR Tech World 2016 in Paris. Our analysts distilled the findings into a series of reports exploring the transformation happening in HR – from demographics through to technology and big changes in the people agenda itself. The three reports encompass:

  • HR Realities in Europe: Challenges and Priorities
  • HR Systems: Today and Tomorrow
  • Inside the Customer Experience of HR Technology

You can download the reports and the summary infographic now.
