Next Generation HR

Welcome to Fosway Group’s HR analyst practice. We have been analysing the HR tech and talent markets for a number of years. The lack of European-focused analysis and insight has been a significant challenge for companies, and here, we address that.

Fosway Group’s Next Generation HR analyst practice provides independent research and advice on key trends, underlying business drivers and outcomes. From the transformation of Cloud HR to a complete rethink of traditional talent management to the new differentiators of talent and people success. The results of our interim research into the impact of COVID-19 on HR is now available. Meanwhile, our annual HR Realities Research is now available, download here.

The 2023 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Cloud HR is now live all online and free to download. Last year’s 9-Grid™ for Cloud HR story was of turmoil and crisis management. That has been replaced this year by a focus on delivering exceptional people experience, delivered through an ecosystem of Cloud HCM Suites and Cloud HR Specialists. The 2022 9-Grid™ for Talent & People Success is also live, heralding a complete rethink of talent management as traditional processes struggle in a post-pandemic world. Used by HR buyers across Europe, each 9-Grid™ shows the relative supplier market options for European organisations. Why start your procurement process from scratch when we already have the research and insight to help you make better supplier decisions much faster?


9-Grid™ has been in evolution since 2008 and is driven by demand for analysis and insight designed for European-based companies. Too often, organisations have had to rely on a US-centric view and the reality of business in Europe is completely different, where multiple languages, currencies and cultures are fundamental to organisations’ DNA. Our analysis reflects this reality and the exciting part is that the 9-Grids™ themselves are only the tip of the iceberg in terms of the data and insight we provide to organisations evaluating or buying HR technology today.
