As 2023 comes to a close and I reflect back on all that Cornerstone accomplished this past year, I’m grateful for the meaningful validation analysts have bestowed upon us as they continue to see Cornerstone as a leader in talent and learning. Across Recruiting, Learning, Talent, and HCM, seven different analyst firms have positioned Cornerstone as a leading technology provider.

As organizations recognize the value of providing a superior employee experience, the continued movement toward a consumerization experience in HCM technology products has led to rapid advances amongst software providers. Despite a fiercely competitive landscape of software providers, Cornerstone is continuously recognized as a leading vendor and lauded for enabling a comprehensive skills strategy across our TXP.

With such a close pulse on customer satisfaction and product innovation, analysts have a deep understanding of the learning and talent solution providers. Securing analyst recognition across the product portfolio demonstrates the depth, breadth, and reliability of Cornerstone’s solutions proven to achieve meaningful results for the world’s largest enterprises.

Don’t take our word for it. Here are a few of the most recent analyst accolades validating Cornerstone’s leadership position in the market:

Learning: The Craig Weiss Group, NelsonHall and Ventana Research recognize Cornerstone TXP
