Nehmen Sie an der Cornerstone Convergence Unbound teil: Unsere brandneue, rein virtuelle Konferenz!

Susan Hilliar

Head of International Communications at Cornerstone

Bei Cornerstone herrscht derzeit in unseren internen virtuellen Teammeetings und Chats aufgeregte Stimmung: Unsere jährliche Konferenz – Cornerstone Convergence – steht in wenigen Tagen an! Und wir sind noch gespannter als sonst, weil die diesjährige Veranstaltung etwas anders ist.

Am 16. und 17. September bringt das brandneue, vollständig virtuelle Format der Cornerstone Convergence Unbound die besten Köpfe aus HR, Learning und Entwicklung zusammen. Wir werden tiefer in die neuen und frischen Ansätze eintauchen, die wir für eine sich ständig verändernde Arbeitswelt brauchen. Das Thema? Unbound Thinking! Für uns heißt das: in neue Welten eintauchen.

Vincent Belliveau, Chief Executive EMEA von Cornerstone, betont: „Dies war ein Jahr wie kein anderes. Die Auswirkungen der Pandemie auf Mensch und Arbeitsplatz waren enorm. Es ist unser Wunsch, Organisationen bei der Navigation durch diese neue Normalität zu unterstützen. Die Convergence ist eine wichtige Gelegenheit, Erfahrungen auszutauschen und zu reflektieren, voneinander zu lernen und den richtigen Weg zum Erfolg zu finden.“

Das diesjährige Sonderformat des Events bietet zwei halbe Tage lang inspirierende Keynotes und informative Breakout-Sessions sowie unterhaltsame und anregende Networking-Möglichkeiten. Und als erste virtuelle Convergence können Teilnehmer von überall auf der Welt und in jeder Zeitzone an der Konferenz teilnehmen. Hier einige Highlights der spannenden Agenda:

  • Unser Ehrengast Viola Davis, Oscar-Preisträgerin, Produzentin und Philanthropin, wird diskutieren, wie die weitreichende Berücksichtigung der eigenen Lebensgeschichte dabei helfen kann, außergewöhnlich zu werden und die Welt zu verändern. Dabei wird sie auf ihre eigene Lebensgeschichte, ihre Kindheit in absoluter Armut, eingehen und zeigen, wie man damit erfolgreich umgehen kann im späteren Leben.
  • Adam Grant, Bestsellerautor und Organisationspsychologe wird seine Expertise teilen, wie man eine Kultur der produktiven Großzügigkeit schaffen kann. Basierend auf einem Jahrzehnt Forschung und Beratung in Fortune 500-Unternehmen weist Adam nach, dass die leistungsstärksten Organisationen diejenigen sind, die einen Ethos des Wissensaustauschs, der Hilfe und des Mentorings vertreten.
  • Vielleicht haben Sie ihn bereits auf Instagram entdeckt, der Autor Emmanuel Acho wird seine neue Web-Serie „Unbequeme Gespräche mit einem farbigen Mann“ mit zur Convergence bringen, um Ihre Fragen zu Ethnie, sozialer Ungerechtigkeit und dem Aufbau einer integrativeren Gesellschaft zu beantworten.
  • Liggy Webb, Gründungsdirektor und CEO von The Learning Architect, gibt praktische Ratschläge zur Identifizierung der richtigen Skills und wie man Content-Strategien bereitstellen kann, um Phasen beispielloser Veränderungen zu überstehen.
  • Selbstverständlich sollten auch unsere exzellenten Sprecher von Cornerstone erwähnt werden. In seiner Keynote gibt CEO Phil Saunders neue Entwicklungen bei Cornerstone bekannt und zeigt auf, wie das Unternehmen seinen kundenorientierten Ansatz anpasst. In seiner Keynote erläutert Vincent Belliveau die Reise von Cornerstone auf der Autobahn der digitalen Transformation und wird Empfehlungen geben, mit denen Unternehmen ihre HR-Transformation beschleunigen können und wirklichen Impact auf das Unternehmen generieren. Anschließend diskutiert Spirgi die Bedeutung von Anpassungsfähigkeit und wie man nachhaltige, positive Veränderung und dadurch herausragende Ergebnisse schafft.

Und dies ist nur ein Bruchteil! Mit Sessions von Cornerstone-Kunden - darunter Hulu, Hyatt, Kraft Heinz und vielen mehr – sowie einigen unserer bevorzugten Cornerstone-Experten wird noch viel mehr verfügbar sein.

Mit mehr als 50 Live- und On-Demand-Sessions können die Teilnehmer ihre ganz persönliche Agenda erstellen. Die kurzen 25-minütigen Sitzungen decken eine Reihe von Themen in fünf Schlüsselkategorien ab: Mutige Denker, Kunden-Spotlights, Produktschulungslabors, Produkt-Chats und Tech Talks.

Wie bereits erwähnt, haben wir auch viele unterhaltsame Möglichkeiten zum Networking. Am ersten Tag können Sie sich uns und dem mit einem Michelin-Stern ausgezeichneten Koch Curtis Stone anschließen, der in der Networking-Pause seine Kochkünste zeigen wird.

Lassen Sie sich diese großartige Gelegenheit nicht entgehen, innovative Strategien kennenzulernen, sich zu vernetzen und so herauszufinden, wie Sie und Ihre Mitarbeiter sich in der neuen Arbeitswelt zurechtfinden können. Und wenn Sie es nicht zu allen Vorträgen schaffen, die Ihnen aufgefallen sind, sind sie alle auf Anfrage verfügbar, sodass Sie nach der Konferenz weiter lernen können. Registrieren Sie sich jetzt, wenn Sie es noch nicht getan haben – es ist kostenlos!

ICYMI: Creating Moments that Matter at Convergence 2017

After a full day of networking, sessions and the return of rockstar Billy Idol on the first day of Convergence 2017, we began day two by talking about great experiences. As Dan Heath, co-author of the upcoming book The Power of Moments, shared, we're living in the "age of experience." From vacations to workplaces to conferences like this one, people want to encounter an impactful—and delightful—time wherever they go. But how do you create a good experience? It's a question explored by Heath and his brother Chip in their book. It's something we consider when designing a new product or feature. And it's the mission of any HR professional, manager or company leader who wants to attract and retain top talent. Check out the recap below to learn more about the ideas shared and discussed today about creating memorable experiences, and join the conversation with #CSODConf17! For information about the availability of presentations after the conference, follow @CSODConvergence on Twitter. Experiences Are Made Up of Moments As you might have guessed from the title of Dan and Chip Heath's book, they've found that great experiences aren't defined by the collective whole—they're defined by small moments, or what Heath called "peaks." Instead of simply fixing problems, he advised the audience to focus on creating such moments that stand out in a person's mind and elevate the entire experience. Keynote with "Switch" author Dan Heath "WE create the moments" #csodconf2017 pic.twitter.com/OCTv2QWU6Y — Angelique McAlpine (@drawingimpact) June 7, 2017 Listening to Dan Heath on creating a great employee experience. How do you mark transitions, milestones and pits at work? #CSODConf17 — Mark Goldin (@markgoldin) June 7, 2017 The 'peak-end' rule says that we always oversample the best and the final moments of an experience. #CSODConf17 pic.twitter.com/Il8iSNOfBR — Kharalis (@kharalis) June 7, 2017 Experience Is Rooted in Culture During yesterday's analyst keynote, co-founder of Aptitude Research Partners Mollie Lombardi explained that organizations should think about the user experience of a culture just as much as they think about the user experience of a software interface. Today's sessions emphasized her message, highlighting that a strong culture—rooted in development, communication and caring—is a critical part of building meaningful relationships with your employees. "Culture is the 3 C's, Culture, Communication and Caring" https://t.co/bImft1wlwg #FacebookLive #CSODConf17 — Cornerstone OnDemand (@CornerstoneInc) June 7, 2017 People care about learning culture. Great session today. Love your employees by developing them. #csodconf2017 pic.twitter.com/gKMbQF64zF — Jeff Miller (@jmillerphd) June 7, 2017 Experience Is Personal Today's speakers also reiterated the theme of personalization. Experiences are memorable when they speak to people directly as individuals, which means organizations should invest in understanding their employees' needs, challenges and aspirations—both personal and professional. Altria's approach to transforming #learnerexperience focused on understanding modern learner needs #CSODConf17 pic.twitter.com/W1NOS7Zdry — KristanEvans (@KristanEvans2) June 7, 2017 "Empathy and compassion are key factors in motivating employees" #CSODConf17 — Kevin Schultz (@kev_schultz) June 7, 2017 Client RAVE Awards Last but not least, here's to the organizations providing standout experiences to their employees and customers. At our RAVE Awards, we honored clients using our software and services in innovative ways to advance their talent management strategies. We do love our clients! Congrats to the finalists and winners of @CornerstoneInc Client RAVE Awards! #CSODConf17 — Mike Bollinger (@bollinger) June 7, 2017

ICYMI: Exploring the Future of Talent Management at Convergence 2016

ICYMI: Exploring the Future of Talent Management at Convergence 2016

To kick off Cornerstone's 14th annual conference, Convergence, our CEO Adam Miller took a cue from Marty McFly and went back in time. After all, before diving in to our favorite topic—the future of talent management—it's important to think about the history of talent management. How far have we come, and where do we go from here? Our time traveling showed that the traditional approach to human capital management—from learning to recruiting to performance and more—has changed significantly. Social, mobile, and big data technologies have enabled us to reach more people, make smarter decisions and act proactively. Throughout yesterday's sessions, we heard from customers, clients and partners on how they're taking advantage of the latest innovations to not only improve core HR services, but impact their organization's success as a whole. Keep reading to learn about the innovative ideas shared at Convergence so far, follow @CSODConvergence on Twitter and join the conversation with #CSODConf16! Predicting the Future with Data Big data has changed the human capital management game, but as Miller shared in his keynote, the challenge is no longer just to understand the past, but to predict the future. This year, we announced an expanded suite of people analytics products, and throughout the day, analysts, partners and clients commented on the growing importance of data when it comes to strategic human capital management. Fulfilling Potential with Modern Learning Cornerstone began with a bold idea to change the world through online learning. Seventeen years later, we've expanded to encompass people development in its entirety, but our core belief remains steadfast: Learning is key to empowering people to reach their potential. Our new project, CyberU, embodies both this foundational belief and our dedication to innovation. As attendees noted during the keynote and throughout the day's sessions, modern learning needs to be mobile, visual and embedded in company culture to get through to the learner and impact your business. Acknowledging the Innovators What would a discussion on the future of talent management be without recognizing the companies leading the way? Our annual Client RAVE Awards acknowledged this year's most innovative talent strategies and the teams driving those initiatives—from redesigning learning to improving user adoption to reinventing "work" entirely. Congratulations to our winners! Turning It Up with Mr. Worldwide Capping off a great first day at Convergence was none other than Pitbull. The "Mr. Woldwide" rapper and two-time Grammy winner performed at our Client and Partner Appreciation Party to a full dance floor of more than 1800 attendees from nearly 30 countries.
