Cornerstone Growth Edition helps organisations with fewer than 400 employees manage, train and develop their teams for greater productivity, alignment and engagement. Cornerstone Growth Edition Performance provides a simple, engaging approach to helping growing businesses manage their performance management activities.
Being introduced initially to 100 employees in the United Kingdom in advance of a competency and value framework initiative, SEGA Europe is using Growth Edition Performance to simplify and automate its performance management initiatives. Through Cornerstone, SEGA Europe can assess employee competencies, manage goals, build development plans, and analyze and report on progress—helping its human resource management team to ensure alignment and accountability among employees.
“SEGA Europe is a dynamic business in a rapidly evolving market. To keep pace with market demands and ensure that employees are able to feel accountable for their own progress and facilitate progress of colleagues, we need a software solution that is feature rich and intuitive to use,” said Ben Harrison, Head of HR at SEGA Europe. “What’s more, it needs to fit into a competency statement and value framework programme being rolled out in our UK Head Office function. Cornerstone Growth Edition is the only piece of software to meet our brief, providing an intuitive interface for staff, with powerful reporting and automation capabilities.”
“We’ve been in discussion with SEGA Europe for some time and, with the new competency and value framework roll-out, it’s the perfect time to introduce employees to Cornerstone OnDemand. It’s clear that employees are pivotal to the company’s success, and Cornerstone Growth Edition Performance software will help surface the talent as well as develop and grow its workforce,” said Vincent Belliveau, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Cornerstone OnDemand.
