Cornerstone Partners With Microsoft to Bring Learning into the Flow of Work

Heidi Spirgi

Chief Strategy and Growth Officer at Cornerstone

Making time for learning during a busy workday is challenging. According to a recent survey, a majority of employees reported thattime is the biggest barrier to their development.

But over the course of the pandemic, and even in the years before, we’ve seen how quickly business needs—and therefore, the needs for employee skills—change. Learning is more important than ever and needs to be delivered in new ways that drive accessibility and information retention. To help companies remain truly adaptable and nimble, they need to integrate learning into the flow of work.

It’s why Cornerstone and Microsoft are partnering to make learning in the flow of work possible and support employees’ growing learning needs. Both of Cornerstone’s LMS platforms (Cornerstone Learning and Saba Cloud) will be integrated into Microsoft Viva—Microsoft’s new Employee Experience Platform (EXP)—to make it easy for employees to discover, share and engage with learning content without having to switch back and forth between solutions.

"Cornerstone is bringing great value to organizations by integrating its solutions within Microsoft Teams, right where employees are working every day," said Kirk Koenigsbauer, COO, Experiences + Devices at Microsoft Corp. "The new Microsoft Viva empowers employees to make learning and development a natural and intuitive part of their daily work."

How Cornerstone Powers Learning in the Flow of Work on the Microsoft Employee Experience Platform

Powered by Microsoft 365 and experienced through Teams, Microsoft Viva seamlessly helps your organization build human connection, foster growth and wellbeing, and drive peak business performance. And now that experience encompasses learning, including the integration with Cornerstone.

Incorporating learning opportunities from Cornerstone’s LMS offerings into Microsoft Viva Learning makes it easy not only to access learning, but also integrate it into the flow of work. Employees using Teams can seek out, share and/or assign learning content based on their current needs.

For example, if an employee is struggling with their workload, a manager could engage in a real-time 1:1 conversation and based on that discussion, serve up training on time management or organization skills. This way, in addition to providing real-time coaching and feedback, the manager is also able to give their employee development resources in a timely and relevant manner. In another instance, an employee that’s familiar with HTML but hasn’t used the skill for a while might find a quick refresher course—rather than spending time and energy re-learning through trial-and-error.

Chi vive una crisi spesso deve affrontare traumi, stress e lutti. Non solo; spesso deve affrontare trasferimenti, la perdita della casa e dei propri averi, l’incertezza per il futuro. Tutti questi fattori possono avere un effetto sulla salute mentale. Allo stesso tempo, coloro impegnati negli aiuti umanitari spesso devono lavorare per molte ore ininterrottamente in condizioni difficili e pericolose. Sono testimoni di sofferenze e di morte e a loro volta rischiano di essere sopraffatti dalla crisi. Per entrambi i gruppi, è importante fare qualcosa per conservare il loro benessere mentale. Oltre ai profughi e ai soccorritori c’è un terzo gruppo di persone la cui salute mentale spesso non viene considerata. Molti dipendenti di Cornerstone ospitano profughi nelle proprie case e da loro abbiamo capito che chi ospita offre molto più di cibo e riparo. Le famiglie ospitanti si occupano di persone che sono state sradicate dalle loro vite per approdare in un paese in cui non conoscono nessuno e di cui non parlano la lingua. Stress, ansia e depressione possono svilupparsi anche nelle famiglie che offrono ospitalità. Molte aziende e comunità si sono mobilitate per supportare i milioni di persone colpite dalla guerra in Ucraina. Cornerstone e la sua Fondazione hanno sviluppato una serie di video brevi sul tema del benessere mentale per aiutare profughi, famiglie ospitanti e le comunità a rischio in Ucraina e nei paesi vicini.Sviluppati in collaborazione con The KonTerra Group, i video sono disponibili in inglese, ucraino, polacco e russo e coprono i seguenti argomenti: Affrontare il lutto e la perdita: inglese, polacco, ucraino, Russian Conservare il benessere durante l’evacuazione: inglese, polacco, Ukrainian, Russian Comprendere e gestire il trauma vicario: inglese, polacco, ucraino, Russian 10 consigli per supportare lo staff dopo eventi traumatici: inglese, polacco, ucraino, Russian Cos’è il counseling e come può aiutarmi?: inglese, polacco, ucraino, russo Come restare calmi durante un’emergenza: inglese, polacco, ucraino, russo La Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation da dieci anni offre formazione online gratuita ai professionisti dello sviluppo e degli aiuti umanitari in tutto il mondo attraverso la piattaforma online aperta DisasterReady.org. Con la creazione di questi nuovi video, la nostra fondazione vuole fornire supporto a tutte le persone impegnate negli aiuti umanitari, nonché ai profughi e alle famiglie che li ospitano. Per ulteriori informazioni su DisasterReady e per trovare ulteriori risorse formative gratuite online dedicate al personale impegnato negli aiuti umanitari, potete visitare i nostri siti in inglese, polacco, russo, ucraino, arabo, francese, or spagnolo.

Cornerstone Cares Free Learning Portal Recognized for Online Learning Innovation by EdTech Breakthrough

Today, we are honored to share that EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market, has selected Cornerstone as the 2020 winner of its "Adaptive Learning Solution of the Year" award in the second annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program. This year’s program attracted more than 1,750 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world. Helping K-12 teachers transition to online learning With more than 55 million U.S. students displaced from school closures due to COVID-19, thousands of educators were forced to quickly adapt to an online learning format, requiring them to rapidly transform how they teach and engage with their students. Responding to this vast and pressing need, Cornerstone leveraged its internal expertise in online learning to create a free content playlist as part of its Cornerstone Cares solution for teachers, offering best practices and tactical information as educators shift to this new way of teaching. To date, over 70,000 people have visited the site since its launch in March, in addition to the millions of users who leverage Cornerstone Learning and Content Anytime through their organizations’ portals. A critical need for adaptive learning solutions "Both the significant increase in online learning consumption by learners on the Cornerstone Learning platform and the free resources offered through Cornerstone Cares demonstrate the critical need for adaptive learning solutions that provide relevant and authentic content," said Lisa Hartley, AVP of Growth Products at Cornerstone. "We are extremely proud to contribute to the dedicated educators during this difficult time and this 2020 EdTech Breakthrough Award is a fantastic validation of the hard work and innovative thinking from the entire Cornerstone team." This specially curated Cornerstone Cares playlist features courses such as "A Teacher’s Guide to Online Learning," designed by former teacher and Head of Cornerstone Studios, Summer Salomonsen, Ed.D. The resource includes bite-size, informative videos and downloadable guides that elevate the conversation from "How do I teach online?" to "How might I continue to connect with and impact my students online?" Due to teachers being under a significant amount of pressure with limited time to make this transition, the content is short, digestible and available on any device or platform and also easily downloadable for those who don’t have online access at home.
