Giving Back to our Community with Cornerstone Cares

Heidi Spirgi

Chief Strategy and Growth Officer at Cornerstone

It’s been incredible to see people around the world step up to support one another during these wildly uncertain times. In my personal network of family, friends and colleagues, I've witnessed a profound use of empathy and caring for one another unlike anything I've seen in my lifetime.And in the extended community, I am impressed and grateful for the many organizations around the world who are stepping up to put humanity first. From companies that are offering supplies and manufacturing capabilities to those that can share their knowledge and resources, there is a tremendous amount of help and support being offered to local and global communities.

Here at Cornerstone, we work every day toward the mission of educating the world. That’s exactly why our team banded together to develop Cornerstone Cares, a free website filled with online learning content about topics that are exceptionally timely, critical and evolving day by day. We packaged together a wide-range of trusted and informative content about COVID-19 and infection prevention, working-from-home best practices and how to manage stress—a particularly difficult skill to practice right now. We also just released a dedicated set of training resources for K-12 teachers, who, for the first time, are urgently adjusting to online teaching models for more than 55 million children in the U.S. alone.

We realize that not everyone has had the access or opportunity to develop the skills needed to tackle the personal and professional challenges that lie ahead. We believe it’s incredibly important that we curate specific learning opportunities that deliver community value in an accessible way, and to do so in a variety of languages. Our resources are now your resources. The four playlists include:

  • A "COVID-19" playlist, which features information about infection prevention and control from leading health organization
  • A "Working from Home" playlist, which includes best practices for staying productive and motivated while working remotely
  • A "Mental Health and Stress Management" playlist, which features tips and techniques for effective self-care and promoting positive mental health
  • "A Teacher’s Guide to Online Learning," which includes expertly created training content to help K-12 teachers rapidly transition from a traditional classroom to an online learning model

So far, we’ve received incredible feedback on these offerings. Some of the amazing organizations we work with are sharing the playlists with their people to reinforce how they can stop the spread of COVID-19. Other organizations that are not accustomed to a remote workforce are using Cornerstone Cares to help their workers adopt virtual technology for the first time. And several global corporations are sharing the multi-language content with their teams in different countries.

Our global team will continue to update Cornerstone Cares with relevant courses and learning opportunities as this situation evolves. We are committed to supporting a stronger and more connected community as we venture through this unprecedented situation together.

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 Partners With Microsoft to Bring Learning into the Flow of Work

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. For more on the power of this partnership, watch this video announcing Microsoft Viva Learning Removing Barriers to Learning Cornerstone and Microsoft’s collaboration will help remove barriers to learning and empower organizations and their employees to grow and adapt for the future. Our learning solutions contain training to meet employee needs across on-demand learning, compliance and career development. Through this partnership and through Microsoft, employees will soon have the ability to access learning where they are, when they need it, to power stronger individual and company performance. As a leader and pioneer in learning, we’ve accumulated the largest pool of learning data and insights in the world over the course of our 20 years in business. We are thrilled to share that experience, expertise and passion with Teams and its users. Read the full announcement to learn more about Cornerstone’s partnership with Microsoft.
