Why it Matters
 

As economic challenges and uncertainty rise across the globe — combined with larger shifts in the expectations of talent today — organizations are hard-pressed to hire quickly and strengthen retention. And these challenges are only expected to increase moving forward. 
 

A few key market trends have emerged as a result, which Fosway says includes:
 

  • AI-driven talent experiences and solutions, particularly for employees that support engagement, development, and mobility within a company
  • A modern talent management approach that embraces agility, inclusivity, and intelligence 
  • Integrations between HR technologies to support the larger ecosystem
  • Skills intelligence and gig- and project-based work to support employee development, while meeting needs of the business


To get ahead, employers are focusing on two primary areas of talent management: 1) improving employee experience through learning and development and career pathing within the organization, and 2) elevating skills and competencies intelligence across the entire workforce.
 

According to Fosway, 96% of HR professionals say they have support for improving employee experience from the C-suite. But only 25% of HR teams think their technology is fit for the modern workforce. As employers look to fill critical gaps across their HR tech ecosystem, Fosway’s latest 9-Grid™ serves to simplify the selection process.
 

The report, which positions Phenom in the Strategic Challenger zone, solidifies us as a vendor with a solution that will help companies meet demanding talent needs.
 

"The ability to identify skills and talent and connect them to current and future opportunities is becoming a game changer for organisations as they look to rapidly reskill employees," said David Wilson, CEO at Fosway Group. "Phenom continues to innovate in this space, turning data into actionable insights that help transform the employee experience."
