SANTA MONICA, CALIF. AND LONDON – 11 April 2018 - Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ: CSOD), a global leader in cloud-based learning and human capital management software, today announced a surge in European client demand in the third and fourth quarters of 2017.

Nearly a third of Cornerstone’s client growth in Europe was due to strong interest in the Cornerstone HR Suite from new and existing clients in the region. Cornerstone has identified that European firms are looking to alternative HRIS solutions, like the flexible, cost-effective Cornerstone HR Suite, which puts talent management and employee experience at the heart of the HR management strategy and helps to accelerate their digital transformation. There are now more than 100 Cornerstone HR clients globally.
The company also saw early traction in Europe for its expanded learning content offerings, with new client signings such as Coats, Lloyd’s of London and Saint-Gobain. Last autumn, Cornerstone announced strategic partnerships with leading learning content providers Cegos Group, Skill Pill and BizLibrary, joining a roster of more than 30 diverse content providers. When coupled with Cornerstone’s learning platform, the combined offerings help organizations take a more holistic approach to corporate learning by giving them more personalised, employee-centric digital learning content and functionality that supports the global need for lifelong learning and continuous training and development.
