Falck Selects Cornerstone OnDemand to Help Achieve Global Alignment

Leading international emergency and healthcare company chooses the Cornerstone human capital management platform to support the company globally and locally

Copenhagen – 11 January 2018 – Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ: CSOD) a global leader in cloud-based learning and human capital management software, today announced that Falck has selected the Cornerstone human capital management (HCM) platform to consolidate and globally align its HR processes and systems. 

As the leading international emergency and healthcare company operating across 46 countries and six continents, Falck’s 38,000 employees are constantly working around the clock to service and rescue people in need, whether they’re stranded by the road with a faulty car, in need of an ambulance or experiencing a fire.

This rapid pace of work, coupled with Falck’s recent international growth and expansions, has driven demand for better global alignment and the need for digitised HR processes and systems.

Cornerstone will help Falck realise this alignment and digitisation by implementing one platform for the whole organisation, which will also enable and standardise employee development and workforce planning. It will also help enable Falck’s compliance with the European Union GDPR, which goes into full effect on 25 May 2018.

By implementing the full Cornerstone HCM platform, Falck will be able to:

  • Recruit, onboard and retain the right talent. The Cornerstone Recruiting Suite will empower Falck to have an easy recruitment process, improved time to competency and a seamless candidate experience to ensure they stay competitive and attractive as an employer – a necessity in today’s job market of skill gaps.
  • Ensure talent readiness and compliance. The Cornerstone Learning Suite creates an environment of successful continuous learning by making training more accessible to employees. Managers can also easily grasp whether employees are compliant– something that is vital in the world of healthcare, rescue and safety.
  • Take a strategic view of development and succession. The Cornerstone Performance Suite will help Falck evaluate teams, support managers and foster mobility. Employees will be able to control their own professional development, while managers can ensure they have the best people and avoid skills gaps.
  • Optimise HR processes. The Cornerstone HR Suite will help Falck improve the HR team’s efficiency and decision-making through centralised employee data, improved workforce reporting and clear workforce metrics.

Comments on the news:

"We have been growing fast through acquisitions and by going into new business areas. Now, is the time for consolidating our business by standardising and digitising processes across our group. We expect that Cornerstone’s HCM platform will support our journey by enabling us to work smarter and move quickly forward on our human capital agenda,” explained Peter Agergaard, VP for Group HR, Falck.

“Our research with IDC last year showed the majority of European organisations are digitally transforming, or planning to digitally transform, their business, and that most line of business managers see HR as important part of it. Falck is clearly part of this majority that are future-proofing their business for the better and making room for further organisational growth. By being proactive in digitising, and by ensuring GDPR compliance early on, Falck is keeping up with the needs of its people and the pace of digital change, and we are looking forward to supporting them with these efforts,” said Vincent Belliveau, executive vice president and general manager of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Cornerstone OnDemand.
