Beyond boundaries: Introducing Cornerstone Galaxy

Chief Product Officer, Cornerstone

As the velocity of change in how we work accelerates, organizations grapple with an inability to keep pace. People can’t deliver what organizations need, when and where they need it.

We call this the workforce readiness gap, and at Cornerstone, we understand the struggle firsthand. That's why we've made it our mission to stand with our customers, empowering them to bridge the workforce readiness gap effectively.

We've listened intently to our customers' experiences, and what we've heard is clear. This workforce readiness gap hinders their ability to keep pace with evolving skill sets, meet the development expectations of their people and gain crucial visibility into their workforce’s capabilities. The consequences? It impacts everything from productivity to the bottom line:

  • The cost of losing talent is substantial — in fact, looking back at 2023, turnover cost organizations $5.73 trillion (about $18,000 per person in the US)
  • The loss of talent and inability to pivot quickly and become productive faster — according to Korn Ferry results in $8.5 trillion in unrealized revenue
  • A 10,000-employee organization can yield a $4 to $7 million savings to their business through better workforce agility and improved retention

To close this gap, you need a workforce agility strategy that aligns your people’s development and your organization’s strategy. Because when your people are at their best, organizations are at their best. You need a solution that will help you develop the right skills quickly, connect the goals of your people and managers, and give you the visibility to design the workforce you need to navigate change today and tomorrow.
