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!

It seems obvious to say that life is too short for the wrong job, and I already wrote on the role HR had to play to help make everyone's job interesting in their companies. Today, I'd like to focus more on the job of Human Resources as such.

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.

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.

It's Time for Diversity Training to Evolve

I was perusing Fast Company recently when an article caught my eye. The piece challenged the effectiveness of diversity policies and training in many companies. As a matter of fact, it went so far as to say that many of them are backfiring.
