HR Critical Realities Part 3: European HR in the Cloud 2016

January 2016

One of the key trends in European HR today is the growth of Cloud-based HR systems

The acceptance of HR technology moving to the Cloud might have come a long way, but there are still numerous challenges for both end user organisations and suppliers to contend with. Data privacy and security concerns, residual internal resistance, existing IT systems and infrastructure can all create issues that slow down or even prevent a successful move to the Cloud.

This third report in the series explores the research on how organisations are moving - or planning to move - their HR operations to the Cloud.

HR Critical Realities Part 1: The Challenges and Priorities 2016

January 2016

What are the realities, plans, trends and challenges of HR and HR technology in Europe

With two years of data thanks to Fosway’s ongoing partnership with HRN, the realities of HR in Europe are becoming clearer. Whether it’s the top levers for success, the top HR priorities, Cloud HR or the drivers for changing HR systems – our data is telling some interesting stories.

When commentators and analysts talk about HR, the regional subtleties are often ignored. It is often viewed as a global business. But the reality for most European and international customers is that HR often feels very different from a one size fits all approach. It can be much more complex. However, understanding that complexity through data hasn’t been easy. Research on the priorities, needs and differences for European companies has been very thin on the ground. The HR research that does exist, frequently has a very US centred perspective.

This first report in our series takes you through the critical realities and challenges and what’s driving change in European HR today.

Microsoft Buys LinkedIn

5 Minute Read Microsoft buys LinkedIn June 2016 Microsoft is buying LinkedIn for $26.2 billion; what are the consequences for HR? After growing into the world’s largest professional online network, LinkedIn is being acquired by Microsoft for $26.2 billion in cash. This is the largest ever acquisition in Microsoft’s history, and 20 times larger than its acquisition of Yammer. How important is this acquisition for LinkedIn, and for Microsoft?

HR Technology in Europe: The Critical Realities 2015

March 2015

What are the realities, plans, trends and challenges of HR and HR technology in Europe

HR technology tends to be viewed as a global market, but the reality for European customers often feels very different, and research on the priorities, needs and differences for European companies is very thin on the ground.

This unique research, conducted by Fosway Group in association with HRN, starts to address that gap. Based on research conducted in the second half of 2014, this analysis explores the critical challenges facing HR professionals today – including critical assessments of HR strategy and organisation, operating models, and of HR technology.
