Nationwide construction leader chooses Cornerstone’s integrated learning, compliance and performance offerings to align talent across five regional divisions
Santa Monica, Calif. – August 5, 2008 – Cornerstone OnDemand Inc., a leader in on-demand, integrated talent management software and services, today announced that national general contracting firm Walton Construction Company, LLC, has chosen Cornerstone’s integrated talent management and development solution to unify its employee learning, compliance and performance management program, as well as help in streamlining its operations across its five regional divisions.
By blending its talent management and development initiatives, Walton Construction will be able to provide a more efficient, comprehensive and effective program for managing and cultivating its 580 employees. This includes establishing and communicating performance expectations at all levels, as well as collecting and tracking employee skills, competencies and certification levels in individual employee talent profiles. With this intelligence, managers can more easily identify and assign learning and compliance activities as part of Walton’s “internal university.”
“Walton is committed to recognizing and rewarding our company’s most treasured asset – its talent,” remarked Heather Hubert, director of talent development for Walton Construction Company. “By working with Cornerstone to create a world-class talent development program, we hope to empower our employees to successfully meet or exceed performance expectations, as well as continue to grow their careers within the company.”
Cornerstone’s multi-tenant, multi-user software as a service (SaaS) is a true on-demand solution, making it a faster and more efficient way for Walton to deploy, manage and maintain its new talent management program. Employing an on-demand solution also means Walton won’t have to deal with the hassles of version upgrades, maintenance and hardware/IT costs.
“Talent management is essential in helping businesses to successfully engage employees, manage projects and optimize for long-term growth,” said Adam Miller, president and CEO of Cornerstone on Demand Inc. “We are thrilled to collaborate with Walton Construction to offer a best in class solution for enhancing the development and performance of its talent base.”
