Fosway Group Recognizes SmartRecruiters as a Core Leader in Talent Acquisition

Rapid global enterprise growth and sustained customer outcomes solidify SmartRecruiters’ reputation for being a global leader in hiring innovation.

SAN FRANCISCO – October 1st, 2019: SmartRecruiters, the Hiring Success company, announced today that it has been recognized as a Core Leader in the 2019 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Talent Acquisition. 

The Fosway 9-Grid™ is a five-dimensional, European market analysis model that draws on 20-plus years of independent research. It allows organizations to compare Next Generation HR and Talent solutions based on their Performance, Potential, Market Presence, Total Cost of Ownership and Future Trajectories across the market.

Commented David Wilson, CEO of Fosway, “Growing rapidly in the US and in Europe, SmartRecruiters has built out a modern TA suite and is firmly targeting enterprise customers. Its recognition as a Core Leader highlights both the breadth of its solution and partner ecosystem, as well as its strong customer momentum and advocacy.”

SmartRecruiters was the only solution assessed in the 9-Grid™ for Talent Acquisition to earn Fosway’s rating of Core Leader. The following factors influenced the ranking: consistently  high levels of customer satisfaction, a platform with a robust set of core features, and a proven track record of winning global enterprise deals. SmartRecruiters has achieved a 9.4/10 CSAT score, +29 in-product NPS, and 100% year-over-year business growth.

“We are honored and pleased to be included in the Fosway 9-Grid™ for Talent Acquisition,” said Jerome Ternynck, Founder & CEO of SmartRecruiters. “We’ve worked diligently to deliver hiring success to our customers since going to market in 2015 and appreciate the vote of confidence. Moreover, the fact that a reputable organization like Fosway is dedicating a specific report to talent acquisition speaks volumes to the growing importance of this function. Hiring top talent is and will continue to be the key driver of a winning business.” 

SmartRecruiters launched its enterprise recruiting platform four years ago, making it a relative newcomer to the Talent Acquisition space that has innovated at a rapid pace. In that short time, the company has built a roster of impressive clients in North America and EMEA, including Bosch, Deloitte, JYSK, Publicis, and Visa—a testament to the precision and scalability of its product. 

Used by 4,000+ brands globally to attract, select, and hire top talent, SmartRecruiters offers a leading enterprise-grade talent acquisition platform with comprehensive recruitment marketing & candidate engagement capabilities, meeting the needs of recruiting and HR operation professionals from source to hire.
