Let’s power the future ready workforce

I know I’m not alone. We’ve all felt first-hand the personal and professional impact of the past 18 months. Navigating a global pandemic and the resulting “big reset” that turned our work and lives upside down, advocating for diversity, inclusion and equality for all people, and most recently, managing through the “Great Resignation.” All these things have fundamentally changed my own life and my work. I am still trying to balance the ever-evolving needs of my family and myself as we re-emerge from the effects of the pandemic. At the same time, I work to lead, motivate and engage a team of diverse, distributed people, ensuring that we stay connected and find common ground so we can execute huge, transformational work for our customers. As a team, we’ve found new and innovative ways to maximize our productivity while staying as agile as possible. And, we are all looking to the future with excitement, as we reflect on our personal and professional goals and seek new ways to grow — both individually and together. This is the picture of our work today The dramatic changes in our lives, the tectonic shifts in the way we work, and the new things we’ve learned about ourselves and each other shine a bright light on the opportunities we have in this moment. We are all searching for new ways to get inspired and to engage and grow at work and life — in a way that aligns with our ever-changing situations, which are all so uniquely personal. And whether change is required or chosen, it’s our human nature to try to “reweave” ourselves back into our new environments. To reconnect us back to purpose, to people, to the world around us. The experience of personal exploration, development and learning have been age-old ways to help us do that. But as important as this personal growth exploration is to us as humans, we can’t forget about the essential requirements of work. Enabling our people to grow and succeed in a way that works best for them AND enabling our business to grow and transform to meet the needs of our customers and markets is not an either/or conversation. Our ability to successfully navigate at this intersection is the lynchpin to the future of work. That’s the current gap we see in the market today Experience and intelligence must go hand in hand. To navigate the future of work successfully, we need to make a fundamental shift in the way we think about talent technology. To effectively adopt “back to human” strategies and elevate the people experience we need to harness — not ignore — the value of the essential talent tools, processes, workflows, and troves of people data and intelligence we’ve worked so hard to put in place. We’ve heard this from our vast and diverse customer base, and we believe Cornerstone is in a unique position to help solve this problem. It’s why we’re so excited that our latest innovation, Cornerstone Xplor, is launching today. It’s a new solution in our portfolio, but it represents more than that.

Learning ROI: Starting with the "Why" Questions
Publicación de blog

Learning ROI: Starting with the "Why" Questions

There has been much debate over learning ROI (return on investment). In a corporate setting, it usually comes up around content or the learning management system renewals or during budgeting time. Executives will ask, and rightfully so, "are we getting our money’s worth?" It’s a fair question. But when the question is asked after implementation or when a training program is in full swing, it often throws the training or learning manager into a tail spin. I have seen many corporate L&D departments scurrying around trying to run reports that will somehow demonstrate ROI for the learning management system (LMS). I always encourage organizations to address this ROI question from the very beginning, i.e., when you are in the process of selecting an LMS and capturing stakeholder buy-in. Start By Asking the Right Questions There are two key questions to ask when considering learning ROI -- or more specifically ROI for the LMS. "Why are we procuring an LMS?" and "How do we validate our reasoning?" It starts with why we are investing in an LMS. Many L&D professionals will argue that this is a dumb question – the answer is obvious – right? But if you are the head of manufacturing, for example, in a large corporation and you were not a participant in the original discussions when an LMS was initially selected and implemented, the answer is not at all obvious. If I were that head of manufacturing and I’m told that I must contribute to the funding of the system, I would want to know the reasoning behind why I must contribute. It is not sufficient to answer that question by simply stating that knowledge is a good thing, I’m going to need more rationale than just that. Particularly in large companies, a business plan is usually developed to justify the spend. It should include an explanation of ROI and measurable ways to quantify the investment over time (e.g., monthly, semi-annually, or annually). In terms of answering the "why are we procuring an LMS?" question, think about the possible answers: To increase productivity? To decrease costs (e.g., less travel to classrooms and more eLearning)? To satisfy mandatory training for compliance? To improve employee job performance? To increase revenue (e.g., beef up sales training to drive more sales)? To enhance career development? Some combination of the above? You get the picture. But answering the "why" question is usually verbalized and not concisely documented. My advice is to document your rationale in the business plan or whatever document you are using to justify the investment. Stakeholder Buy-In Equally important is stakeholder buy-in by function or line of business. In addition to HR, the IT department will likely be involved and they need to be a part of any implementation from the start – even if they don’t own the project. It is not always easy to see how revenue-generating lines of business, for example manufacturing, are stakeholders who ultimately fund the LMS – so they should also have the opportunity to weigh-in on the project. Unless you sell your learning content to finance the LMS, it is an indirect cost to the company. Document It Well My advice is to document stakeholder input and/or commitment in your business plan. This should help satisfy the new head of manufacturing’s concerns about why we procured an LMS. But we are not done yet. When documenting the reasons why the company procured the LMS, it needs to be followed with "how the system investment will be measured over time". See, it gets harder now. Some of the possible answers above are more difficult to measure than others. For example, if one of my reasons was to decrease employee travel costs by reducing instructor-led training and increasing eLearning delivery, then I would want to benchmark current travel and labor costs, calculate the initial system investment, track ongoing maintenance costs, and finally track employee travel and labor costs – or something similar to achieve the needed metrics to "measure the investment". Much of this data can be programmed and retrieved from the LMS – but usually not all of the data. So, a concise model for measuring the system investment over time needs to be conceived and documented for this to work. And that, my friends, was one of the easier answers to "why we procured an LMS". This is the first in a series on the ROI of learning. In the next blog, I will share my thoughts on how integrated talent management can help to answer and measure the more difficult "why" questions.

Cartoon Coffee Break: Helping employees tap into hidden skills

Cartoon Coffee Break: Helping employees tap into hidden skills

Careers are no longer linear. In fact, more employees are switching jobs and even career paths, and embracing the idea of their next role, gig or opportunity could be something completely different from what they’re doing right now. Having transferable skills is not just useful for employees looking to start a new line of work — it’s also crucial for organizations to navigate today’s great talent reshuffle. By helping employees develop adjacent skills or discover new abilities, you’re promoting their career growth, while also building a workforce of more flexible, adaptable and empowered employees who are prepared to confront new challenges. Cartoon by Terry LaBan, cartoonist and illustrator. Read on for advice from authors around the Cornerstone Resource Corner on how tapping into hidden or adjacent skills can help employees own their career journeys. Lean into employee capabilities instead of competencies Hiring, managing and developing people based solely on their existing competencies isn’t a responsive enough strategy to help your organization pivot to changing market conditions — and it can potentially even limit employees from accessing growth opportunities. In order to develop well-rounded employees who can be successful in today’s nimble business landscape, talent strategies need to instead focus on capabilities, writes Cornerstone’s Dream Chua. “When you shift the focus to skills and capabilities, interpersonal skills and worker potential are weaved into a holistic employee profile,” Chua adds. “The emphasis here is on high-level abilities and traits that your employees and your organization need for future success, such as communication, collaboration and emotional intelligence.” Read Chua’s full article here. Unearth skill adjacencies to upgrade reskilling efforts Another way organizations can proactively and quickly address skills gaps (sometimes even before they appear) is by locating skills adjacencies and leveraging them to develop new and necessary skills. Skill adjacencies are links between employees’ existing abilities and those they want or need to learn. By using a proactive, data-driven approach to locating and strengthening these existing skills for new roles, organizations can not only better fill in-demand roles, but also show employees that they’re invested in their careers and growth, writes Cornerstone’s Mike Bollinger. “Today, some 40% of employees aren’t confident that their abilities will be relevant in the future,” he shares. “But by directing them to skills development and training that’s aligned with their existing capabilities and their interests, employees will more easily and rapidly transition from their current roles, to emerging positions, to new needs within their organization.” Read Bollinger’s full article here. Offer "internal gigs" so employees can flex their skills To keep employees engaged and fill critical skills gaps, organizations can try out ‘internal gigs’ where employees can practice and develop their skills. At Cornerstone, we introduced Cornerstone Gigs: an internal talent marketplace where employees can post opportunities for others to take on short-term assignments outside their usual department. With more than 250 applicants and counting, the program has proven to be a successful avenue for employees to expand their skills while exploring different areas of the business, boosting employee engagement and reshaping how people think about finding “better” jobs. Read the full article about Cornerstone Gigs here. Improving employee experience and business outcomes together Today’s top organizations are tapping into career mobility, promoting employee skills development, learning and growth to engage their teams in exciting new ways. And in supporting workers on their growth journeys and providing the opportunities and resources to learn and develop new skills — or use their existing skills in new ways — organizations can not only survive, but thrive in today’s evolving business environment. Editor's Note: This post is part of our “Cartoon Coffee Break” series. While we take talent management seriously, we also know it's important to have a good laugh.

Future of Work Requires a Connected Experience

Work is changing. Rapidly. Dramatic shifts in human skill sets are already underway, and the need for organizations to reset for growth is critical. At the same time people are seeking a career path and an opportunity to actually change their lives – to develop new skills, new careers, and to find acceptance, purpose and belonging. The ability for your organization and people to respond quickly to changing and uncertain conditions is essential. And yet, traditional people management strategies aren’t keeping up. Nor are these strategies providing people the personalized work experience they crave. Making matters worse, the sheer volume of competing HR systems and tools are creating more silos and more complexity. There is literally a tool for every problem you could ever imagine. Yet organizations are still struggling — to get scale in their employee value propositions, and to align their people to growth and transformation. In this webinar, guest speaker David Johnson, principal analyst with Forrester Research, will discuss how to create a work experience that makes your people want to stay and grow with your organization. He’ll share how to identify systemic factors in current employee journeys that may be inhibiting the performance and growth of your people, and how to deliver individualized and self-driven experiences at scale. You’ll learn how to: Design a meaningful work experience aligned to organizational priorities Enable and empower managers to coach for growth Be intentional with reskilling Use technology to deliver rather than shape your people management strategy

Enabling career growth is your competitive advantage

In today‘s environment of unrelenting business transformation, roles are shifting quickly. Skills are becoming obsolete faster. Your organization needs to identify, acquire, and develop the skills needed to transform, compete in new markets, and thrive. So how do you upskill your people in a scalable way that keeps you competitive rather than constantly playing catch-up? In short, by providing career growth opportunities. But often, employees think it’s easier to find a new job outside their company than inside. And in many organizations, there are internal cultures holding back career growth and internal mobility. In this webinar, Global Industry Analyst Josh Bersin shares why it’s time to navigate the shift from jobs to work, and the importance of connecting skills development to a career path in order to drive people and organizational success. Companies that do this well (through a combination of technology, HR processes, and culture) are the companies that will grow, outperform, and out-innovate their peers. In this webinar, you will learn: How to accelerate career growth based on people’s skills, interests and potential How to tap into hidden talent by surfacing skill adjacency How to use holistic people data rather than instinct or unintentional bias to build a sustainable talent pipeline

Office Hours: How to Deliver Learner Centered Programs

Office Hours: How to Deliver Learner Centered Programs

This post is part of our biweekly "Office Hours" video series, featuring quick career, workplace and leadership tips from talent management experts and business leaders across the globe. When it comes to employee training, large corporations are in a bit of a tough spot. According to a recent LinkedIn report, 94 percent of employees would stick around longer at a company that invests in career development. Yet, in the same report, survey respondents said their greatest learning challenge was "getting employees to make time for learning." How do you give employees something they want, but allegedly don't have time for? In this video, Summer Salomonsen, chief learning officer of Grovo, suggests a clear-minded approach. In the time-constrained reality of the modern workplace, all learning content must be relevant and engaging. It should yield clear answers to the questions, What is the point of this? and Why am I the right person to be doing it? If an employee can't identify the business goal that specific training serves, or figure out how it helps them in their own career, chances are they'll ignore the increasingly irritating reminders from their company's learning portal to complete tasks x through y. As Salomonsen says, "It's on us to deliver learner-centered programs"—programs that identify business purposes, make employees better at their jobs, and in doing so contribute to building a growth mindset-oriented organization.
