11th January, 2023 — Workhuman®, the company revolutionising how employees celebrate, connect with, and appreciate each other in the workplace, today announced it has been named a Strategic Leader in the 2022 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Talent & People Success, recognising Workhuman’s position as a frontrunner in the European recognition, engagement and HR space.
The 9-Grid™ for Talent & People Success can be used to understand the relative position of solutions and providers in the UK & European talent management systems market. Workhuman’s position as Strategic Leader reflects the company’s market and customer performance, the solution’s scope and sophistication, and its historic and current presence, including size of related business and number of enterprise customers.
Fosway Group is Europe’s #1 HR industry analyst, focused on next-generation HR, talent and learning. Based on Fosway Group’s extensive independent research and insights from Fosway’s Corporate Research Network of over 250 organisations, the 9-Grid™ is the only European-centric market analysis model that enables corporate buyers to evaluate procurement options based on five critical factors: performance, potential, market presence, total cost of ownership and future trajectories.
Fosway’s HR Realities 2022 research reveals that employee experience (EX) is a key driver of HR buying decisions, with 96% of HR professionals saying they have support for improving EX from their C-Suite.
Fosway also reports that despite the pressure to consolidate platforms, less than half of buyers have very standardised solutions for their HR processes, and buyers that are focused on more strategic impact on talent and culture are turning to specialist providers, rather than their core HR suites.
“The employee experience has never been more front and centre than it is today, and HR leaders are looking for tailored solutions that drive more human-centred workplaces,” said Emily Miller, VP of Sales EMEA at Workhuman. “As a specialist in recognition and engagement, we are thrilled to be recognised as a Strategic Leader in Talent & People Success, helping businesses to implement recognition programmes that engage employees and drive true business impact.”
“Our research shows that improving the employee experience is seen as key to HR’s future success,” said David Wilson, CEO, Fosway Group. “Workhuman’s position as Strategic Leader on the 9-Grid™ reflects the company’s success at helping enterprise scale organisations improve the employee experience by driving increased engagement.”
