Talent Management Leader Squares Off Oct. 5th at HR Technology Conference

Santa Monica, CA – October 2, 2006 – Cornerstone OnDemand, Inc., the only proven provider of on-demand, integrated talent management software and services for the enterprise, will participate in the industry's first Integrated Performance & Learning Management Shootout against three other vendors at “Human Resource Executive's” 9th Annual HR Technology Conference & Exposition on October 5, 2006 in Chicago.


“We identified the need for integrated learning and performance management early on and have been delivering integrated solutions for our clients for several years,” said Adam Miller, president and CEO, Cornerstone OnDemand. “Our experience has allowed us to refine and improve our solutions, and we’re ready to demonstrate them to the rest of the market. We’re looking forward to the competition and to coming out the winner.”


Cornerstone will showcase its integrated Performance and Learning Management solutions in a head-to-head competition against three other vendors. A scripted scenario co-written by industry experts Leighanne Levensaler and Josh Bersin from Bersin & Associates and conference Co-Chair Bill Kutik will provide an apples-to-apples comparison of each vendor’s solution.


"Our various Shootouts have been popular for seven years because attendees get to see software from four leading vendors doing the exact same thing!" says Co-Chair Bill Kutik. "Since demonstrations have to follow our script, attendees can compare them for the very first time without sales tricks. And the integration of these two applications in this Shootout has become a vital industry trend."


HR Executive’s 9th Annual HR Technology Conference & Exposition will be held October 4th – 6th at Navy Pier in Chicago. The Shootout takes place at 11:00 a.m. on October 5th. Visit www.HRTechnologyConference.com for full conference registration details.
