How do employee ambassador programs work?
To attract and retain the best talent, your employer brand must reflect your company culture and values – as actually experienced by your employees. But how do you convince candidates that your employer brand is genuine and true-to-life? Employee advocacy remains the most powerful channel. But you need the right digital tools and managerial support to leverage this valuable resource.
What is wellbeing anyway?
I can recall a conversation I had many years ago when I set up my first business.
What is wellbeing anyway?
The term wellbeing has been thrown around as a catch-all term for many years in business circles, and as such has started to lose its true meaning. Is it free bacon butties on a Monday morning or a Pac-Man Arcade Machine in the lunch room? Or is it something a lot harder to define and achieve in today’s work environment?
Build great and engaging managers
A recent Udemy study found that nearly half of employees surveyed had quit because of a bad manager, and almost two-thirds believed their manager lacked proper managerial training.
Great moments, shared as a team
As April whizzes past, we sit down with some of our Cornerstars, who are currently celebrating their work anniversaries, and ask them to reflect on their experiences at Cornerstone so far.
Business Unbound: A Vision and New Strategies for the New World of Work
Yesterday looks nothing like today. For some companies, the COVID-19 crisis has brought business to a grinding halt—but for others, it’s kicked things into hyperdrive. The trends that were emerging before the crisis have accelerated: Digital transformation initiatives have a heightened urgency as businesses are now required to pivot on a dime. The trend toward remote work has manifested in full. The need to reskill and upskill the workforce is now an immediate concern rather than a provision for the future. Change is not optional. How to change is now the critical question.

Cornerstone Originals — It's our first birthday!
Just about a year ago, we launched our first-ever Cornerstone Originals learning series — Digital Native Advancement (DNA) — and watched with excitement as our customers took it and ran! DNA embodied everything we wanted in our flagship Cornerstone Original. It was innovative and strategic, but it also captured our goal of amplifying a trending topic in a new way. And that type of innovation doesn’t come easy.
Employee Engagement: Four questions to ask yourself
It’s safe to say, there are huge organisational benefits to good employee engagement – from higher productivity to lower turnover rates, and everything in between. In the first of our masterclass series in association with HEC Paris, we look past the jargon and share our no-nonsense tips for employee engagement. We’ve summarised below the key points made in this first masterclass, but we would definitely encourage you to watch the webinar and hear the real-life stories behind this practical advice, and learn more about how this could be applied specifically within your own organisation.
Getting the most from virtual events
For the past few months, everything has been online. Conferences, meetings, training and even concerts and theatre performances. While we are close to returning to some sense of normality, it will be a while before in person events make their return. Some are suggesting we may not have in person events until at least 2021. So, many are deciding to either try their hand at their first virtual event or even moving their annual events online.
Kindness in a crisis
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to disrupt and dominate our lives, feelings of anxiety are completely normal during times of uncertainty. Each person will be impacted in a different way and it is important to remember that you are not alone. Already there are so many stories emerging of human kindness and compassion and people pulling together to help and support each other.
