Fosway 9-Grid’s™ for both Digital Learning and Learning Systems identify Hive Learning as Core Challenger in the learning technologies landscape

Hive Learning — the world’s leading peer learning platform — has entered the 2021 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning for the first time with Core Challenger status. This comes just two months after Hive Learning graduated to Core Challenger status in the 2021 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems.

Both rankings follow three consecutive years of record growth, exceptional customer advocacy, and continued high performance with enterprise customers. In the past three years alone, Hive Learning has launched over 20,000 peer learning deployments, generated more than 22 million learning interactions in 196 countries, and helped over 80% of platform users put what they’ve learned into action.

Fosway Group is Europe’s #1 HR industry analyst and describes vendors in the Core Challenger Zone as “mid performing solutions with a strong core suite of solutions capability, strong customer advocacy and good performance in enterprise customers”.

The Fosway 9-Grid™ is a multi-dimensional model used to understand the position of vendors in the UK and European markets based on their performance, potential, market presence, total cost of ownership, and future trajectories.

The Fosway 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems looks at all the main providers in the learning systems market and those disrupting them, focusing specifically on the capability of the platform and the impact they create for customers.

Meanwhile, the Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning looks at the wider market including digital partnering, learning content, consulting, and digital services.

Hive Learning features as a Core Challenger in both, owing to the power of its unique three-layer solution:

  • Peer learning technology designed to stimulate conversation at every turn and powered by a peer-driven data engine that continually tracks and measures behavior change over time
  • High impact, bitesize, practical content built with experts and designed to stimulate peer learning; used to accelerate the adoption of behavioral skills for cohorts of 50 to 50,000 in a peer learning program; or to help organizations sustain behavior change and respond to new needs, in a light-touch way, in a peer learning network
  • Expert services with a team of behavior change specialists who support customers in stage managing deployments, mapping them to a customer’s business strategy and desired outcomes, and supporting customers in building their own peer learning playbook and upskilling their team

This combination is the reason Hive Learning achieves a customer-rated NPS of 72, +80% of learners take action on what they’ve learned, and Hive Learning recently won the bronze award for Learning Platform of the Year at the Learning Awards with their partner, Babcock DST.

David Wilson, CEO of Fosway Group comments:

“Appearing in both the Digital Learning and Learning Systems 9-Grids™ is testament to Hive Learning’s expanding portfolio of content and resources. Its differentiated approach and focus on peer-to-peer learning as well as key needs such as diversity and inclusion in particular mark it out in a competitive and growing market.”

Hive Learning Chief Executive Officer, Julia Tierney, comments:

“We all know that learning technology on its own can’t create a long-lasting impact. In days gone by we’d buy learning systems, spend ages setting up the fancy admin features, then hit the button to set them live and hope the impact would come when it never did.

“We speak to a lot of customers who are (rightly) nervous about implementing new technology, but over the past year, we’ve become obsessed with analyzing how behavior change happens — whether it’s from looking at our data or looking at how social movements create change in the real world. And while technology is often a vehicle, it’s never the whole package.

“That’s why we invest so heavily in designing content for our programs and our networks that actually stimulate behavior change — whether it’s our own ‘off-the-shelf’ content or helping our customers adapt theirs. It’s also why our team works so closely alongside our clients, using tried and tested tactics to help them get anywhere from 60% to 90% of participants contributing and helping hold each other to account in just a matter of months.

“It’s really exciting to be recognized for our work on the Fosway 9 Grid™, and it’s an honor to be recognized alongside the likes of LinkedIn, Skillsoft, and Udemy. And we’re always grateful for the insight that comes out of their work analyzing 1000s of data points to pull them together. ”
