Let’s power the future ready workforce

I know I’m not alone. We’ve all felt first-hand the personal and professional impact of the past 18 months. Navigating a global pandemic and the resulting “big reset” that turned our work and lives upside down, advocating for diversity, inclusion and equality for all people, and most recently, managing through the “Great Resignation.” All these things have fundamentally changed my own life and my work. I am still trying to balance the ever-evolving needs of my family and myself as we re-emerge from the effects of the pandemic. At the same time, I work to lead, motivate and engage a team of diverse, distributed people, ensuring that we stay connected and find common ground so we can execute huge, transformational work for our customers. As a team, we’ve found new and innovative ways to maximize our productivity while staying as agile as possible. And, we are all looking to the future with excitement, as we reflect on our personal and professional goals and seek new ways to grow — both individually and together. This is the picture of our work today The dramatic changes in our lives, the tectonic shifts in the way we work, and the new things we’ve learned about ourselves and each other shine a bright light on the opportunities we have in this moment. We are all searching for new ways to get inspired and to engage and grow at work and life — in a way that aligns with our ever-changing situations, which are all so uniquely personal. And whether change is required or chosen, it’s our human nature to try to “reweave” ourselves back into our new environments. To reconnect us back to purpose, to people, to the world around us. The experience of personal exploration, development and learning have been age-old ways to help us do that. But as important as this personal growth exploration is to us as humans, we can’t forget about the essential requirements of work. Enabling our people to grow and succeed in a way that works best for them AND enabling our business to grow and transform to meet the needs of our customers and markets is not an either/or conversation. Our ability to successfully navigate at this intersection is the lynchpin to the future of work. That’s the current gap we see in the market today Experience and intelligence must go hand in hand. To navigate the future of work successfully, we need to make a fundamental shift in the way we think about talent technology. To effectively adopt “back to human” strategies and elevate the people experience we need to harness — not ignore — the value of the essential talent tools, processes, workflows, and troves of people data and intelligence we’ve worked so hard to put in place. We’ve heard this from our vast and diverse customer base, and we believe Cornerstone is in a unique position to help solve this problem. It’s why we’re so excited that our latest innovation, Cornerstone Xplor, is launching today. It’s a new solution in our portfolio, but it represents more than that. Cornerstone Xplor works at the intersection of experience and intelligence Cornerstone Xplor is the manifestation of our company’s bold vision to revolutionize how people and teams will learn, grow, connect and thrive in this new world of work. It’s a holistic people growth experience that delivers a fully integrated and hyper-personalized journey of learning, skill development, growth and career mobility for every person.

They can auto-generate learning and skill development paths, create seamless skill and career journeys, deliver fresh, relevant, high-impact learning content — all surfaced by Cornerstone Xplor based on individual interests, goals and career aspirations — without all the heavy lifting. They can leverage Cornerstone Xplor to surface relevant learning and skills content, help people connect to mentors and experts, reveal options for both traditional and non-traditional career and skill paths, and connect people to an auto-matched “marketplace” of new jobs, gigs and projects. They can meet their people where they are with personalized learning, skill development and career growth opportunities – at scale and with more intelligence than ever — while keeping that experience tightly connected to their existing systems, workflows and essential learning and talent programs.

To create a better world – the one we all aspire to live and work in? To empower our people to infuse their unique perspectives and personalities and strengths into work, and dazzle us with the results? It’s time to create this new world together.

Behind the scenes of Cornerstone’s bold new vision to power the future ready workforce

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. Delivering a new system of work For more than 20 years, Cornerstone has been the leader in people development. So we knew one thing for certain — the future of work requires a new system of work. Along with our new brand, we’ve designed that new system of work. It’s an environment that embraces each person’s unique needs and goals, unites everyone in a shared language of growth and success and creates more freedom and agility in the way we work — no matter who we are, where we work or how work gets done. And this is why we’re so excited to announce the launch of Cornerstone Xplor. In the most meta scenario ever, we concepted, designed and launched Cornerstone Xplor with an incredibly diverse, distributed team. All working remotely, in the middle of a pandemic, during a period of intensive business transformation for our organization collectively, but also for our people — and this is the exact environment this solution intends to serve. This is what makes Cornerstone Xplor more than a new product offering. It’s the first manifestation of our bold new vision to revolutionize how people and teams learn, grow, connect and thrive in this new world of work. Learn how you can use Cornerstone Xplor to motivate your people with a personalized, purpose-driven growth experience that inspires. A unified growth experience for people Cornerstone Xplor brings every element of people growth into one single destination to deliver a truly unified growth experience for people. We created it to help talent leaders with the use cases that matter most: Modernizing their learning and development experience Delivering the most relevant content from anywhere to their people Accelerating career and talent mobility Establishing skills as the universal language of growth and success across the organization Cornerstone Xplor is powered by the deep expertise and innovation that can only come from the global leader in talent. To deliver such highly personalized, deeply connected growth experiences, we tapped into the serious talent intelligence and technology horsepower we’ve already got under the hood, like: The broadest talent management capabilities The deepest skills intelligence The best of curated content delivery Purpose-built AI that brings together skills, content and people data in exciting new ways An innovative architecture that improves connectivity, efficiency and scale It’s all here at Cornerstone. Join us on the journey to rebuild work We’re obsessed with helping our customers unite people and business success and meet the future, ready. Is this statement bold, daring and disruptive? Sure. But that’s what Cornerstone is all about, it’s what our new vision for innovation is all about and it’s what our new brand is all about. We also think it’s what our customers are all about, too. And we’re excited to take this journey with all of you!

Payback Time: The Top 10 Most Lucrative College Degrees

It's back to business at colleges across the country — but not for the nation's most recent graduates. More than 40 percent of them are unemployed and many are loaded with student debt. Small wonder, then, that some question whether a college education is really worth the time and money. The answer is: Yes, depending on which major a student chooses. PayScale, an online provider of compensation data, recently tracked the academic disciplines that offer the greatest salary potential both in the short and long term. Here's a closer look at the most lucrative job titles and salaries, based on annual pay of bachelor's degree holders without higher degrees and grads who typically have two years' experience when they start. The Meal Ticket: Engineer Given the planet’s growing need for energy, the expanding population of global travelers and the speed at which information technology is spreading in the industrial and developing worlds, engineers with highly specialized skills are in high demand. Engineering makes up six of the 10 top-earning degrees (and 12 of the top 20). (No. 1) Petroleum engineering: starting salary $98,000, mid-career salary $163,000 (No. 2) Aerospace engineering: starting salary $62,500, mid-career salary $118,000 (No. 4) Chemical engineering: starting salary $67,500, mid-career salary $111,000 (No. 5) Nuclear engineering: starting salary $66,800, mid-career salary $107,000 (No. 6) Electrical engineering: starting salary $63,400, mid-career salary $106,000 (No. 7) Computer engineering: starting salary $62,700, mid-career salary $105,000 All About Numbers The major that edged out chemical engineering to land the No. 3 spot on the list: actuarial mathematics, with a starting salary of $56,100 and a mid-career salary of $112,000. Applied mathematics also scores high, coming in at No. 8 with a starting salary of $50,800 and a mid-career salary of $102,000. No. 10 is statistics, with a starting salary of $49,300 and a mid-career salary $99,500. Actuaries use mathematical, statistical, financial and economic theory to solve real business problems. Many actuaries work for insurance markets and predict, for instance, the frequency and intensity of earthquakes or hurricanes for purposes of setting policy rates. Actuaries also work in the consulting, accounting, government, and financial services areas. Applied mathematics, on the other hand, is more concerned with mathematical methods, which can lead to careers in science, engineering and general business. Statisticians typically work for federal, state or local governments or private companies. Help Wanted: Gadget Hounds Another hot commodity: computer science majors. They've been in demand since the dawn of the personal computer era, but their value has skyrocketed as the number of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices worldwide has exploded. Future advances in industrial, medical and research methods depend on the know-how of computer scientists. Ranked No. 9 on the PayScale list, computer science majors can expect to start at $58,400 and reach a mid-career salary of $100,000. The Missing Ingredient The left-brained crowd clearly has the lead when it comes to earning potential, but that doesn't mean right-brained folks are destined to pinch pennies. International relations, advertising and film production, for example, appear in the top 50 majors on the PayScale list, with international relations leading the group at a starting salary of $40,600 and median salary of $93,000 (although, to be fair, liberal arts and other more creative-oriented majors dominate the list's bottom 50). Two important points about the PayScale ranking: it doesn't distinguish between the salaries a computer scientist can hope to earn in Silicon Valley versus one who lives in Alaska. Nor does it factor in the role of good old-fashioned hard work. Yet what it does well is set expectations for today's youth (and help older generations come to terms with their youthful decisions).

And whether change is required or chosen, it’s our human nature to try to “reweave” ourselves back into our new environments. To reconnect us back to purpose, to people, to the world around us. The experience of personal exploration, development and learning have been age-old ways to help us do that.

To navigate the future of work successfully, we need to make a fundamental shift in the way we think about talent technology.

Future of Work Requires a Connected Experience

Work is changing. Rapidly. Dramatic shifts in human skill sets are already underway, and the need for organizations to reset for growth is critical. At the same time people are seeking a career path and an opportunity to actually change their lives – to develop new skills, new careers, and to find acceptance, purpose and belonging. The ability for your organization and people to respond quickly to changing and uncertain conditions is essential. And yet, traditional people management strategies aren’t keeping up. Nor are these strategies providing people the personalized work experience they crave. Making matters worse, the sheer volume of competing HR systems and tools are creating more silos and more complexity. There is literally a tool for every problem you could ever imagine. Yet organizations are still struggling — to get scale in their employee value propositions, and to align their people to growth and transformation. In this webinar, guest speaker David Johnson, principal analyst with Forrester Research, will discuss how to create a work experience that makes your people want to stay and grow with your organization. He’ll share how to identify systemic factors in current employee journeys that may be inhibiting the performance and growth of your people, and how to deliver individualized and self-driven experiences at scale. You’ll learn how to: Design a meaningful work experience aligned to organizational priorities Enable and empower managers to coach for growth Be intentional with reskilling Use technology to deliver rather than shape your people management strategy

Enabling career growth is your competitive advantage

In today‘s environment of unrelenting business transformation, roles are shifting quickly. Skills are becoming obsolete faster. Your organization needs to identify, acquire, and develop the skills needed to transform, compete in new markets, and thrive. So how do you upskill your people in a scalable way that keeps you competitive rather than constantly playing catch-up? In short, by providing career growth opportunities. But often, employees think it’s easier to find a new job outside their company than inside. And in many organizations, there are internal cultures holding back career growth and internal mobility. In this webinar, Global Industry Analyst Josh Bersin shares why it’s time to navigate the shift from jobs to work, and the importance of connecting skills development to a career path in order to drive people and organizational success. Companies that do this well (through a combination of technology, HR processes, and culture) are the companies that will grow, outperform, and out-innovate their peers. In this webinar, you will learn: How to accelerate career growth based on people’s skills, interests and potential How to tap into hidden talent by surfacing skill adjacency How to use holistic people data rather than instinct or unintentional bias to build a sustainable talent pipeline
