Prior to the 2017 merger, abrdn had already taken the step of adopting Cornerstone Learning Management System (LMS), and the relationship has been renewed twice since then. In 2020, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic required the company to overhaul its approach to learning and development (L&D). Suddenly, in response to lockdowns, abrdn needed to rapidly pivot away from its reliance on traditional, classroom-based learning. The company also wanted to offer ongoing support for employees forced to work from home.
This urgent need to adapt and change prompted abrdn to purchase Cornerstone Content Anytime. The company needed a solution and content package that supported its crucial transformation as well as provided critical support to its people when they needed it most. With Cornerstone, abrdn was able to implement virtual classrooms and blended learning approaches, taking a ‘digital first’ approach to L&D.
