Leading European analyst firm recognises iCIMS for its rich capabilities and ability to meet the needs of complex enterprise-scale customers

iCIMS, the talent cloud company, has been named a Strategic Leader, the highest form of recognition, in the 2022 Fosway 9-Grid for Talent Acquisition. Fosway recognised iCIMS for providing a rich suite of capabilities across a broad scope of features and having the sophistication to meet the needs of complex, enterprise-scale customers.

More than 80% of HR professionals based in the U.K. say their organisations’ talent acquisition efforts aren’t adapting to candidate needs and preferences quickly enough, forecasting continued challenges with hiring and retaining the right talent, according to research in the iCIMS 2022 Workforce Report. Employers have been forced to rethink how they attract, engage, hire and advance talent.

The Fosway 9-Grid™, EMEA’s only market analysis model for talent, is driven by this demand for insight and is designed for European-based companies. This independent research rates providers on five dimensions: performance, potential, market presence, total cost of ownership and future trajectory across the market.

iCIMS leading positioning in the analysis from Fosway Group establishes iCIMS as a premier global talent platform, citing its strong market performance and customer advocacy in Europe. iCIMS continues to strengthen its platform to support complex, enterprise companies, most recently through:


  • Acquisition of Candidate.ID to bring marketing automation to talent acquisition: iCIMS recently acquired the Scotland-based company to empower recruiting teams to hyper-target best fit, most engaged candidates with unique lead scoring and automated marketing campaigns. Candidate.ID was also recognized by Fosway Group for its strong suite of solutions and customer advocacy.
  • Launch of the Opportunity Marketplace: Earlier this year iCIMS announced general availability of our internal mobility solution to help talent teams reengage, retain and advance employees.
  • Applied intelligence: iCIMS is future-proofing its solutions with state-of-the-art technologies, including its patented Ensemble AI, to make it easier for candidates to find relevant roles, get hired and develop their career path. Its AI- powered job matching and digital assistant capabilities intelligently connect people with the right jobs, using the ensemble stacking method to improve accuracy and reduce bias.
  • Focus on innovative, hyper-personalised experience: Talent teams can now convert more talent with dynamic video content that can be shared across various channels throughout the talent journey to tell the right stories at the right time.


“Progressing to Strategic Leader status on the 2022 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Talent Acquisition reflects iCIMS’ accelerated performance in the European market as well as its continued investment in product innovation,” said David Wilson, chief executive officer of Fosway Group. “iCIMS recent acquisition of Candidate.ID, is a great example of both building a disruptive global TA suite offering, as well as strengthening their capabilities in Europe specifically.”
