Technology application user interface, or UI, matters more than ever now that employees are bringing their consumer devices to work. In a self-service and highly connected world, old school technology just doesn’t do anything for end-users nor do they choose to use it. Today, employees want and expect more, and a bad UI will kill adoption of your technology investment.
Researching and working with our clients on user experience principles, we’ve discovered that end-user experience of software is not features-based, it is workflow-based. Employees are creating goals, taking courses, sharing files, collaborating on teams, and getting their hands dirty with software on a daily basis. Their activities are action-oriented. They are less concerned with the behind-the-scenes functionality, and more concerned with whether or not the software solution is helping them be more productive throughout the day or providing the insight necessary. With the June 2014 Product Release, we’ve made yet another round of consumerization updates to our application in two of the most popular functional areas.
Here are some highlights from the June 2014 Product Release:
Faster Performance Reviews- Employees and managers should be able to complete goals and reviews in the most simple and streamlined way. Our new redesign of the reviews page makes the process much easier with fewer clicks and beautifully balanced.
Improved Learning Transcripts- Whether you are delivering required trainings or providing the opportunity for your employees to take developmental courses, our learning transcript makes courses much more marketable and accessible.
We believe that enterprise applications should deeply engage people, not just solve business problems. That’s why Cornerstone OnDemand works like your employee’s favorite consumer apps and websites. We deliver the industry’s most intuitive, informative, and simplest user experience whether you’re on a desktop, tablet, or a mobile device. Consumerization should be the new standard for organizations wanting their employees to actually utilize their software investment and improve adoption at all levels.

Who cares about employee experience - a webinar with Ben Whitter
Employee experience once came down solely to a desk, office space, and possibly some free cake at the coffee station. This has completely transformed in recent years, the initial catalyst being the pandemic. The mass exodus from the workplace forced employers to rethink the employee experience (EX), as keeping morale high and workers connected to each other was paramount. However, even in the aftermath of Covid-19, the EX has continued to evolve.
How SMBs can embrace Digital Transformation to Revolutionise Talent Management
Small to mid-size businesses (SMBs) are the lifeblood of the British economy. They generate over £2 trillion each year – around half of the private sector turnover – and represent a staggering 61% of the country’s workforce, equivalent to 16.3 million people. SMBs are more than just a melting pot for innovation – they also promote sustainable improvement, and foster organic growth. The key to unlocking new success for these mid-market companies lies in talent management and investment, whether that be in attracting new talent, or in retaining and enhancing the current workforce.
