Signs of a good harvest
One early sign that this partnership with Cornerstone was reaping positive rewards was the success of AgFirst’s badge initiative. The bank wanted to devise a way to recognize when employees exemplified their four core values: Industry Leadership, Stable Growth, Values Led and Everyday Impact. They were happy to find Cornerstone gave them everything they needed to achieve just that.
“We try to periodically feature a value to promote through newsletters and internal channels like that and kind of highlight it,” Hilliard says.
The bank has seen a significant influx in the number of badges accrued since adopting the Cornerstone platform. Hilliard is also hard at work collating playlists of Cornerstone content to help the bank’s people learn how to adopt these values best and get their badges if they haven’t already.
