Cornerstone OnDemand’s Software to Foster Employee Education and Growth for Bright Horizons

Award-winning provider of employer-sponsored child care and work/life solutions to implement Cornerstone’s learning and talent management solution for its 20,000 employees


Santa Monica, Calif., June 17, 2010 Cornerstone OnDemand Inc. announced today that Bright Horizons Family Solutions® has adopted Cornerstone’s integrated learning and talent management software suite – including platforms for learning management, compliance, employee performance management, succession planning and enterprise social networking – to manage and develop its 20,000 employees.  The world’s leading provider of employer-sponsored child care, early education and work/life solutions, Bright Horizons® serves more than 800 clients, including 90 FORTUNE 500 companies, across the U.S., Europe and Canada. 


The addition of Cornerstone’s software coincides with Bright Horizons’ celebration of its inclusion on FORTUNE Magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list for the 11th time.  Among the keys to the company’s success is its investment in motivating, training and developing its employees so they can achieve their long-term career goals and best meet the needs of the children, families and employers Bright Horizons serves.  The company turned to Cornerstone OnDemand as part of its continuing efforts to develop comprehensive human capital management solutions that foster the education and growth of its employees, as well as provide the organization with a more holistic view of its workforce.  The team also wanted to leverage enterprise social networking tools as part of its learning and talent initiatives. 


“Just as we guide children and families on their journeys of lifelong learning, we encourage our own employees to see their growth as a continuous process,” said Helen Zarba, Senior Director of Education and Training for Bright Horizons.  “Providing the tools and resources our employees need to succeed is ingrained in our culture, and Cornerstone’s software will allow our team members to engage in continued career growth and education. Investing in an integrated talent solution also will make it easier for us to align training, development and certifications with an individual employee’s performance, goals and career path, as well as foster informal learning through the creation of an internal employee community.”


The Bright Horizons team was particularly impressed with the configurability and flexibility of Cornerstone’s software, allowing the team to tailor the system to reflect the colorful, visual look and feel of the Bright Horizons branding and current human resources efforts.  The ease of use and simplicity of the solution’s interface will help to ensure employee engagement.  And Cornerstone’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery will allow Bright Horizons to manage and deliver targeted training and development activities without additional hardware investments or IT support. 


“Putting learning at the core of its talent strategy will help Bright Horizons to be even more successful with its people management initiatives,” said Adam Miller, President and CEO of Cornerstone OnDemand.  “Integrating learning with solutions for performance and succession ensures that organizations have the right tools to address skill gaps, develop future leaders and help employees to be more effective in their roles.  And supplementing talent strategies with social networking tools helps to boost employee performance and connect geographically distributed workforces.”
