Quadrant for Talent Management
Suites for Fourth Consecutive Year

SANTA MONICA, Calif. — March 7, 2017 Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ:CSOD), a global leader in cloud-based learning and human capital management software, today announced that the company has been recognized as a Leader in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Talent Management Suitesi for the fourth consecutive year.

The Gartner Magic Quadrant shows the competitive positioning of four types of talent management technology providers: Leaders, Visionaries, Niche Players and Challengers. Based on Cornerstone’s “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute,” the company has maintained its position in the Leaders quadrant every year since the report was introduced in 2013.

According to the report, “Leaders demonstrate a market-defining vision of how TM technology can help HR leaders achieve their business objectives. Leaders have the ability to execute against that vision through products and services, and have demonstrated solid business results in the form of revenue and earnings. In the TM suite market, Leaders show a consistent ability to win broad suite deals. They have significant successful customer deployments in North America, EMEA and the Asia/Pacific region in a wide variety of vertical industries and with multiple proof points. Leaders are often what other providers in the market measure themselves against.”

Its focus on continuous learning and development helps organizations empower employees to realize their potential and drive success.
