Cornerstone OnDemand Announces
Availability of Cornerstone
New subscription content offering will be available this month and will feature more content partners and European language offerings to support multi-national clients
SANTA MONICA, Calif. and LONDON — Oct. 2, 2017 — Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ:CSOD), a global leader in cloud-based learning and human capital management software, today announced that its new subscription content offering, Cornerstone Content Anytime, will be available for Cornerstone clients in the U.S. and across EMEA starting this month. Additionally, Cornerstone has expanded its content partnerships with global providers such as Cegos Group, Skill Pill and BizLibrary to support multi-national organizations that require learning and development content in various European languages, including English, French, German and Spanish.
Introduced earlier this summer, Cornerstone Content Anytime is a progressive content subscription service that enables organizations to provide their employees with fresh, modern content that puts them in control of their own career development. This is particularly important now, as research from Deloitte indicates the half-life of workplace skills has fallen to as little as five years, and organizations are finding it difficult to keep up with the pace of change as their employee education and training content becomes quickly outdated.
Cornerstone Content Anytime features more than 4,000 video-enabled, mobile-ready courses across a depth and breadth of languages and topics. This includes courses that are geared toward closing skill gaps and developing both “hard skills” – those of particular relevance to a role – and “soft skills” – personal attributes such as effective communication, critical thinking, collaboration and problem-solving needed to be successful in today’s work environment. Course categories include personal development, office productivity, health and wellness, technology, business skills, sales and service, and leadership and management, among others.
The service also supports all types of modern learning formats, from micro-learning (shorter, easily consumable courses) and macro-learning (deeper mastery of a subject or skill) to spaced-learning (courses broken into sections, with timed intervals for questioning in between).
Courses will be continually added and refreshed to stay current, and content recommendations will be provided based on usage and feedback from Cornerstone’s massive user base, ensuring the best content rises to the top.
In addition to previously announced partnerships with CyberU, Grovo, PowerForward and TED, Cornerstone has also formed strategic partnerships with more learning content providers, including:
- Cegos Group, is a global leader in professional learning with a catalog of over 200 e-learning courses on soft skills in 18 languages.
- Skill Pill, a producer of modern, engaging and quality micro-learning content that is distributed across mobile devices, tablets and PCs.
- BizLibrary, a leading provider of online employee training solutions with more than 6,000 micro-video lessons, video courses, interactive videos and eLearning courses covering a wide variety of topic areas and languages.
Cornerstone Content Anytime, coupled with the new Cornerstone Learning platform, takes a more holistic approach to corporate learning by giving organizations more personalized, employee-centric digital learning content and functionality that address the needs of both organizations and learners.

“Organizations have been forced to choose between multiple, disparate content providers to ensure they’re offering their employees the widest range of learning content available. We believe today’s organizations should have the option to choose a single service that simplifies the complex acquisition and curation of training content for them,” said Adam Miller, founder and CEO of Cornerstone OnDemand. “With Cornerstone Content Anytime, we have opened a world of modern training content that is refreshed continually and personally curated to give employees the tools needed to be successful in today’s evolving workplace.”
