Washington, D.C. - July 10, 2007 - The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and Cornerstone OnDemand Inc., a provider of integrated, on-demand talent management solutions and services, announced today that Cornerstone OnDemand will support HCI initiatives as a global underwriter, helping bring the latest human capital education, metrics, and tools to leading corporations.


Cornerstone and the Human Capital Institute will form a strong foundation for the development of HCI research, education, events, and decision support tools. For HCI, the partnership results in counsel, real-time knowledge, and financial support.


As part of the agreement, Cornerstone will sponsor three HCI Masters Webcasts, a series of on-line learning events that explore new strategies and innovative thinking conducted by internationally renowned human capital and leadership experts.
