SANTA MONICA, Calif. — September 12, 2018 – Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ:CSOD), a global leader in cloud-based learning and human capital management software, today unveiled Cornerstone Frontline, a recruiting solution built to meet the needs of companies seeking to hire local, entry-level and frontline employees, such as store managers recruiting new cashiers, supervisors seeking seasonal warehouse employees and healthcare providers looking for administrative staff. Today, Cornerstone has more than 1,000 retail, manufacturing and healthcare clients.
Cornerstone also announced the acquisition of Workpop, Inc. Founded in 2014, Workpop provides an easy-to-use, robust web and mobile solution for candidates and hiring managers in service-based industries.
