Just about a year ago, we launched our first-ever Cornerstone Originals learning series—Digital Native Advancement (DNA)—and watched with excitement as our customers took it and ran! DNA embodied everything we wanted in our flagship Cornerstone Original. It was innovative and strategic, but it also captured our goal of amplifying a trending topic in a new way. And that type of innovation doesn’t come easy.
This team—Cornerstone Studios—represents the best of the content business. We’re storytellers, videographers, writers, curators, dreamers, strategists, artists, but most of all, we’re a team of learners.
And over the past year, this team has accomplished incredible things. We’ve stretched ourselves to create and innovate through constraints—and boy did we have a lot of constraints in 2020.
The biggest of which was when our workplace shifted overnight from in-person to work-from-home. We closed both our New York and Los Angeles Studios back in March. And since then, we’ve had to find a new way to produce content.
Enter the Cornerstone Boom Box—our remote production kits. Our team valiantly took on the task of shooting all new footage using iPhone 11s and remote set-directing through WebEx without missing a beat! All in all, we produced 10(!) programs using the Cornerstone Boom Box.
It’s been an honor to lead such a talented, hardworking team and to see everything they’ve accomplished in the face of adversity during the first year of Cornerstone Originals.
For those of you who have been with us along this journey, thank you. We’re just getting started. You’ll love what we have planned for this next year. Stay tuned to find out.

Cheers to a year of innovation – closing out Q4 strong at Cornerstone

As leaders in the HR and talent space, we’re energized by the role we play at the forefront of this transformation, and the opportunity to create talent experiences that motivate, inspire and support people so they can reach limitless potential and success.
Summer successes – A (humble) showcase of our continued growth in Q3 2022
While many of us soaked up the sun at the beach and enjoyed fun trips with our families, at Cornerstone, we kept our eyes on the prize this past quarter and have some exciting things to share. Q3 was filled with new product enhancements, expanded thoughtful partnerships, a big return to in-person events(!), continued success for our customers and tremendous company growth.
