Brand, schmand. This isn’t about a new logo, though you’ll notice we have one. It isn’t about a new purpose because, for over 20 years, we’ve been obsessed with helping people realize their potential and achieve extraordinary things.
This is about the “never normal again” workplace and Cornerstone’s unwavering focus on blazing trails in learning and talent innovation and helping our customers meet the future, ready.
The time is now (to rethink the way we work)
We all know the future of work is upon us. It’s an environment of unrelenting business transformation and tectonic shifts in the way we work. And it’s a time of dramatic change for people. The lines between work and life have now been erased, and more than ever, we’re looking to our organizations for a sense of stability, community and purpose.
And as humans, we’re in a mode of deep self-reflection. We’re all taking this moment to reassess our paths and reinvent who we are, who we want to be and where we want to go.
This future demands more agility, resilience and alignment as priorities change, skills advance, and goals evolve. It requires a significant shift in organizational mindset as we partner together to build deeper connections with each other and rally around a shared sense of purpose and community. It requires that every one of us be more empowered to develop, grow and engage in ways that are so uniquely personal.
That’s some heady stuff. And it’s why at Cornerstone, we knew we had to think differently. And that’s the genesis of not just our audacious new look but our bold new vision to power the future ready workforce, too.
Rethinking how we work is about a fundamental shift to a more human approach to work, and we believe talent leaders are central to making that happen.
The rise of the modern talent leader
If there was ever any question of the importance of talent leaders within our organizations, that debate is now over. The dramatic disruptions in work over the past 18 months have catapulted talent leaders into the spotlight, expanding their influence across organizations and championing the shift to “back to human” models that re-focus on people.
Today’s talent leaders hold the golden thread — they connect people with new growth opportunities and align business goals with a larger purpose to help their organizations achieve extraordinary success together.
And for talent leaders to create inspired, aligned and successful workforces, Cornerstone knew they needed more than another disjointed piece of technology in their toolkit. We knew this was our opportunity to empower talent leaders — not just with technology iteration but with a leapfrog vision to reimagine the work environment.
That new work environment is a place where everyone shares a common language of success, every individual has the flexibility to create a growth plan as unique as they are and everyone can work with more autonomy, freedom, creativity and agility than ever before.
To make work a place that works for everyone.
Experience how Cornerstone can help your organization unite people growth with business success to create work environments that inspire growth, productivity and success for all.

Symphony RetailAI and Cognita Schools: Successfully deploying a centralised HR process while meeting local needs
When you’re a global organisation, the idea of remote work is hardly novel. Coordinating employees spread across different countries and time zones has always been part of the job for HR departments of widespread organisations. However, managing this complexity is never easy, and success lies in choosing the right strategy: Is it better to have multiple decentralised local approaches, or a single centralised global one? Besides having a global footprint, Symphony RetailAI and Cognita Schools couldn’t be any more different. Yet they have both found success in managing their global teams by adopting similar approaches that leverage an AI-powered platform.
