Published On: April 29, 2021

Chicago, Ill., April 29, 2021 – SilkRoad Technology, a global software and services platform that helps organisations attract, retain and align people to their business, announced its recognition as a Core Leader in the 2021 Fosway 9-GridTM for Talent Acquisition. SilkRoad’s position as a Core Leader is reflective of its track record for providing innovative enterprise solutions, customer advocacy and care to complex, global organisations.

SilkRoad Technology’s talent acquisition solutions enable organisations to attract candidates with branded experiences and compelling offers. Upon offer acceptance, new hires are onboarded, effectively aligning them to the organisation’s strategy, people and culture, speeding time to contribution. Beyond the new hire experience, organisations can deliver intentionally designed experiences for different inflection points within the employee journey, such as promotions, transfers, family leave, mergers & acquisitions and offboarding or rehire.

David Wilson, CEO of Fosway, said, “SilkRoad consolidates its position as a Core Leader on the 2021 9-GridTM for Talent Acquisition with a positive trajectory and increasing customer advocacy. As a specialist provider, it is innovating the onboarding aspects of the recruitment process and sustaining its growth across European enterprise organisations.”

“We are proud to be recognized by Fosway as a Core Leader. In the coming months, talent acquisition professionals will be challenged to manage significant influxes of activity in terms of hiring, welcoming employees back to the office and managing a hybrid workplace or potentially offboarding colleagues. That’s why we continue to drive innovation in this space. We strive to improve the extensibility of our solutions to meet the agility needs of our clients, now and in the future, helping them balance hybrid working models that require both digitization and engagement,” said Colin Larter, Senior Director, SilkRoad EMEA.
