Not familiar with the Fosway 9-Grid™? It’s EMEA’s premier five-dimensional model that compares organizations based on dimensions like Performance, Market Presence and Future Trajectory. Unlike other analyst models, it focuses on talent acquisition solutions relevant to Europe-based international enterprise-scale customers.

This is the second year Greenhouse has secured an upward trajectory in this market research report. With nearly 1,000 customers in EMEA and more than 29 million applications processed for European-based customers, we’re helping European and global organizations successfully build and evolve their hiring strategies.

With demand for talent so high, it’s a candidate’s world. To remain competitive, companies must deliver a better experience for candidates by having clear hiring strategies that create a culture of purpose.

In addition to the massive growth in the EMEA job market, the report highlights a few key talent acquisition trends. Here’s how they align with our products and point of view.


Companies are leveraging candidate relationship management (CRM) to drive healthy talent pipelines.

In October 2021 Greenhouse acquired Interseller, a sourcing automation provider. The acquisition will give customers the tools to natively find, reach and engage top talent quickly and effectively – all within Greenhouse. With this new technology, Greenhouse users can scale and automate personalized communication to remove friction by unifying sourcing and structured efforts in one place.


Diversity has become a centerpiece of the talent acquisition strategy and nearly 60% of European talent acquisition teams want to use it more when attracting talent.

The structured hiring philosophy – which has a proven ability to mitigate unconscious bias by promoting consistency and accountability during the hiring process – is the basis of the Greenhouse product. Through investments in pipeline parity and features like Candidate Name Pronunciation, we cement our commitment to fairness, inclusivity and belonging through action.


The average number of integrations per customer continues to grow, as does the sophistication of their hiring tech stack.

Greenhouse has cultivated the largest partner ecosystem that includes over 400 unique partners. Our customers are offered free and open APIs that allow them to solve for every step and dimension of their hiring process. In 2021 we added over 45 new integrations including Gusto, Luma, Personio, Remote, Paradox, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams and Modern Hire.
