Cornerstone Galaxy: Shaping the future of workforce agility

Srinivasa Ogireddy

Chief Technology Officer

As the work environment rapidly evolves, organizations struggle to keep up with the necessary skills, diverse expectations and required visibility into workforce data. This creates a workforce readiness gap, resulting in missed revenue and performance opportunities.

To overcome this gap, organizations need a comprehensive workforce agility strategy. This strategy should help your organization accelerate skill development, align goals between their people and managers and easily design a future-ready workforce. But traditional HR solutions simply aren’t built to do this for workforce agility.

A universe of possibilities

Today, we're introducing Cornerstone Galaxy — our complete, AI-driven workforce agility platform that revolutionizes workforce readiness and drives organizational success. Our open, holistic platform unifies experiences and data while seamlessly integrating with your HR tech ecosystem.

We bring specialist depth to a breadth of learning and talent solutions that deliver the growth your people want alongside the skills and insights your organization needs. Since our platform is flexible and extensible, we can partner with you to tailor the solution that meets your organization’s precise requirements. Whatever your tailored solution is, you’ll find our commitment to innovation can enable you to overcome your workforce readiness gap and embrace workforce agility.

As part of our commitment to innovation, I’m excited to announce four new solutions we’re adding to our Galaxy:

Cornerstone Immerse

Imagine a world where professional development isn't just a passive activity but an immersive experience that accelerates skill acquisition through realistic practice and feedback. Whether it's mastering sales pitches, navigating complex healthcare scenarios, honing leadership skills or refining decision-making abilities through scenario-based training, the possibilities are endless.

  • Tackle the challenges in closing skills gaps and drive desired behaviors as business needs evolve
  • Learn soft skills in a less risky environment, building confidence faster and enhancing productivity
  • Create personalized, immersive learning to facilitate or practice real-life talent mobility, development and skill conversations to drive better retention and engagement
  • Leverage immersive learning alongside additional modalities to meet learners where they are in the flow of work

Cornerstone Immerse is now available to customers globally.

Cornerstone Companion

Shooting for the stars

In a world where the pace of change is accelerating, the need for organizations to adapt and evolve has never been more urgent. The Cornerstone Talent Health Index recently found that only 59% of employees were confident in their organization's prioritization of skill development opportunities, compared to 88% of employers. This sobering statistic reminds us that complacency is not an option — we must address the workforce readiness gap head-on.

Cornerstone Galaxy offers solutions for a brighter, more resilient future, driven by a vision of empowering organizations and individuals to navigate the complexities of the modern world. We recognize when people are at their best, organizations are too.

Join us on this journey as we revolutionize the future of work — one immersive experience, one personalized solution and one data-driven insight at a time.
