Todo lo que Cornerstone logró en el segundo trimestre

El primer trimestre de 2022 fue muy bueno para Cornerstone. Ya habrán leído en nuestro blog todo lo que hemos conseguido . Así que cuando decimos que este trimestre ha superado las altas expectativas que teníamos al salir del primer trimestre, lo decimos completamente en serio. Principalmente porque no habríamos escrito este blog si no fuera así.

En el segundo trimestre de 2022, todo fue crecimiento. Crecimiento de nuestro personal, capacidades, experiencia y ambiciones.

Estas son algunas de las cosas que logramos en el segundo trimestre:

  • Descubrir las principales tendencias de nuestro sector
  • Ampliar nuestros equipos y capacidades
  • Conseguimos interesantes victorias con y para nuestros clientes
  • Recibimos varios reconocimientos por parte de los expertos a nivel mundial del sector

Cada uno de estos logros ayudó a consolidar nuestra posición como líder en el aprendizaje, el desarrollo de habilidades, el contenido y las experiencias de las personas impulsadas por la IA.

E incluso con todo esto, todavía hay más que decir sobre lo que Cornerstone logró en el segundo trimestre.

Identificación de las principales tendencias en el ámbito del desarrollo de competencias

En el segundo trimestre del año, empezamos a lo grande con la publicación de nuestro segundo estudio global, Thriving in the Global Skills Shortage: Prosperar a pesar de la escasez global de habilidades.

El informe pone de relieve las tendencias organizativas en el siempre cambiante panorama del desarrollo de competencias, centrándose específicamente en la creciente brecha de confianza entre empleados y empleadores y en la actual sensación de urgencia en torno a la escasez de competencias y talento.

Las tres principales conclusiones de nuestra investigación fueron las siguientes:

  • Los empleadores y los empleados no están totalmente alineados en cuanto a la priorización de habilidades
  • Los empleados no confían en que sus organizaciones den prioridad a las competencias en el futuro
  • La brecha de confianza en las competencias se ha reducido o ampliado en función de la fortaleza de la organización.

El director general de Cornerstone, Himanshu Palsule, lo resumió de la mejor manera, calificando los resultados de la investigación como una demostración de "cómo las organizaciones y su gente siguen viendo el desarrollo de habilidades como una parte cada vez más importante para navegar con éxito en su futuro compartido".

Seguimos con la intención de ampliar nuestro negocio

Este trimestre hemos adquirido otra empresa y hemos hecho planes definitivos para adquirir otra. Así es como realmente pusimos en marcha nuestro "crecimiento".

En el segundo trimestre, completamos con orgullo la adquisición de EdCast, y con ella promovimos nuestras intenciones de revolucionar el panorama del aprendizaje. Juntos, nuestros equipos se han unido y han compartido objetivos ambiciosos para resolver las demandas más críticas de talento y negocio que estamos viendo en el ámbito laboral.

Estamos impacientes por ver cómo nuestra visión compartida cobra vida.

Los equipos de Cornerstone y EdCast se pusieron a trabajar rápidamente, anunciando una emocionante integración de Zoom que incorporará herramientas de aprendizaje y formación para ayudar a impulsar la productividad y la capacitación.

¿Y qué viene después de completar una adquisición? Planes para una segunda, por supuesto.

Todavía no podemos compartir demasiado, pero podemos decir que esta asociación introducirá algunas mejoras de gran impacto para nuestros clientes en la forma en que identifican y desarrollan las habilidades del futuro, comprometen y hacen crecer a su gente, y se adaptan a la agilidad de la organización.

Sin embargo, EdCast y SumTotal no fueron los únicos recién llegados. También dimos la bienvenida a dos líderes de renombre a nuestro equipo ejecutivo:

Ryan Courson se unió a Cornerstone como nuestro director financiero. ¿Un dato curioso sobre Ryan? Anteriormente fue el director financiero más joven de una empresa pública, la Seaspan Corporation, un hito impresionante.

Carina Cortez también se unió a Cornerstone como nuestra directora de personal. Procedente de Glassdoor como CPO, Carina aporta una perspectiva única sobre el poder del crecimiento de las personas y las culturas empresariales sólidas.

Éxito de los clientes en todo el mundo

El segundo trimestre no fue una excepción a la hora de ayudar a nuestros clientes a crear un propósito en lo que hacen. Nuestros exitosos esfuerzos para ayudar a llevar a sus organizaciones al siguiente nivel se reflejaron en la ampliación de las ofertas de asociación de nuestros clientes, en la extensión de las relaciones y en muchos nuevos clientes. Algunos de los clientes históricos que han tenido más éxito con Cornerstone este trimestre son:

  • Smith and Nephew CD
  • ACNUR
  • META
  • O'Neal
  • Allegis Group
  • AmeriHealth Caritas
  • Viking Group Inc.
  • Americold Logistics
  • Indiana Packers Corporation
  • The National Bank of Indianapolis
  • Ziggy's Home Improvement
  • Vital Farms
  • Vensure Employee Services

Y nuevos clientes que encuentran el éxito al comenzar su viaje con Cornerstone:

  • Grammar AG
  • ASML
  • Chewy
  • Comisión de Texas
  • TOI Management

Muchos de nuestros clientes llevaron su éxito a la gran pantalla, obteniendo reconocimiento y premios. Un agradecimiento especial a Suntory Holdings, Cardinal Health, DPDHL y Estee Lauder Companies por haber sus victorias en los premios Chief Learning Officer Learning Elite de 2022. Cada uno de estos clientes fue reconocido por los mejores niveles de rendimiento en cinco dimensiones: estrategia de aprendizaje, compromiso de liderazgo, ejecución de aprendizaje, impacto de aprendizaje y resultados de rendimiento empresarial.

Estamos contentos de formar parte de ello.

Nuestros clientes no fueron los únicos que ganaron en el segundo trimestre

Ver a nuestros clientes prosperar es siempre una victoria para nosotros. También es cierto que no nos importa aceptar un poco de amor de nuestra industria. Cornerstone recibió una avalancha de reconocimientos por parte de expertos e informes establecidos del sector, entre ellos:

También recibimos varios premios significativos en el segundo trimestre por nuestros productos, la influencia de la industria y el contenido original. Algunos de los más destacados son:

Tercer trimestre y más allá

Con la noticia de nuestra intención de adquirir SumTotal, no hay duda de que veremos aún más oportunidades de ayudar a un grupo de clientes más grande y diverso en el tercer trimestre. Estén atentos para saber más al respecto en la segunda mitad de 2022.

Mientras tanto, seguiremos invirtiendo en nuestros productos, en la inter funcionalidad y en el compromiso con el cliente para llevar la experiencia de nuestra gente, el aprendizaje y las iniciativas de talento al siguiente nivel.

No nos tomamos todos estos logros a la ligera, y nos enorgullece decir que estamos en un camino claro para cambiar la forma de entender el aprendizaje, el desarrollo de habilidades, el contenido, las experiencias de las personas y mucho más. Asegúrese de volver en el tercer trimestre para ver lo último y lo mejor de Cornerstone.

Cornerstone Partners With Microsoft to Bring Learning into the Flow of Work

Cornerstone Partners With Microsoft to Bring Learning into the Flow of Work

Making time for learning during a busy workday is challenging. According to a recent survey, a majority of employees reported thattime is the biggest barrier to their development. But over the course of the pandemic, and even in the years before, we’ve seen how quickly business needs—and therefore, the needs for employee skills—change. Learning is more important than ever and needs to be delivered in new ways that drive accessibility and information retention. To help companies remain truly adaptable and nimble, they need to integrate learning into the flow of work. It’s why Cornerstone and Microsoft are partnering to make learning in the flow of work possible and support employees’ growing learning needs. Both of Cornerstone’s LMS platforms (Cornerstone Learning and Saba Cloud) will be integrated into Microsoft Viva—Microsoft’s new Employee Experience Platform (EXP)—to make it easy for employees to discover, share and engage with learning content without having to switch back and forth between solutions. "Cornerstone is bringing great value to organizations by integrating its solutions within Microsoft Teams, right where employees are working every day," said Kirk Koenigsbauer, COO, Experiences + Devices at Microsoft Corp. "The new Microsoft Viva empowers employees to make learning and development a natural and intuitive part of their daily work." How Cornerstone Powers Learning in the Flow of Work on the Microsoft Employee Experience Platform Powered by Microsoft 365 and experienced through Teams, Microsoft Viva seamlessly helps your organization build human connection, foster growth and wellbeing, and drive peak business performance. And now that experience encompasses learning, including the integration with Cornerstone. Incorporating learning opportunities from Cornerstone’s LMS offerings into Microsoft Viva Learning makes it easy not only to access learning, but also integrate it into the flow of work. Employees using Teams can seek out, share and/or assign learning content based on their current needs. For example, if an employee is struggling with their workload, a manager could engage in a real-time 1:1 conversation and based on that discussion, serve up training on time management or organization skills. This way, in addition to providing real-time coaching and feedback, the manager is also able to give their employee development resources in a timely and relevant manner. In another instance, an employee that’s familiar with HTML but hasn’t used the skill for a while might find a quick refresher course—rather than spending time and energy re-learning through trial-and-error. For more on the power of this partnership, watch this video announcing Microsoft Viva Learning Removing Barriers to Learning Cornerstone and Microsoft’s collaboration will help remove barriers to learning and empower organizations and their employees to grow and adapt for the future. Our learning solutions contain training to meet employee needs across on-demand learning, compliance and career development. Through this partnership and through Microsoft, employees will soon have the ability to access learning where they are, when they need it, to power stronger individual and company performance. As a leader and pioneer in learning, we’ve accumulated the largest pool of learning data and insights in the world over the course of our 20 years in business. We are thrilled to share that experience, expertise and passion with Teams and its users. Read the full announcement to learn more about Cornerstone’s partnership with Microsoft.

Highlights from HR Tech 2022

Highlights from HR Tech 2022

Last week, the Cornerstone team took our annual pilgrimage to HR Tech in Las Vegas. For years, HR Tech has been a beacon in foggy waters for HR leaders and practitioners. A north star, guiding us through the latest trends and technologies and a platform to meet with industry experts who have tales of success and lessons learned. Like with most social engagements in our lives, HR Tech was put on pause because of COVID-19. While there was an HR Tech last year, the crowd was smaller than it used to be. But this year, HR Tech felt like the old days. If there’s one thing our time at HR Tech taught us, it’s this: People are ready to dust off their suitcases and dive into this new world of work. And the energy was palpable! The entire week was jam-packed with events, meetings and expert sessions. The conference had the largest list of exhibitors ever, with 450 companies vying for attention and traffic to their booths. Themes on booth walls and in conversations across the venue covered things like: The evolving hybrid workplace The toils of recruiting How to keep up with digital transformation How to unlock talent data Where to start with skills technology How to modernize the employee experience While not necessarily new topics, it was apparent that companies and people weren’t just talking about these trends on a macro level. They were digging into the details, exploring new innovations and reminding us all that HR technology is more crucial now than ever before. It truly was a remarkable week for our industry. We left re-energized and ready to tackle what’s ahead. Inspiring keynotes In the opening keynote, Cynthia Marshall, CEO of the Dallas Mavericks, led the audience through a showcase of the values she believes HR leaders can apply when making critical business decisions. As a long-time HR leader, Marshall shared her gold standard for creating a healthy and diverse work climate that puts people first. It was an inspiring presentation, to say the least. Josh Bersin, always a crowd favorite, educated us with his take on the state of HR technology. He debuted findings from his annual report and dug into the trends he sees disrupting the market, including the economy, a labor shortage, burnout, turnover and the diminishing workforce. When you put it like that, it’s hard to find the silver lining! But fortunately, Bersin feels the solution to all of this disruption is actually our industry, HR technology. He said, “If you’re not training, empowering and moving people around inside your company, you could fail. Your technology has to facilitate these things, and these things all need to be interconnected.” The biggest shift we need to make, Bersin said, was that “HR tech is not for HR. It’s for employees.” That’s a mindset all technology providers must adopt to succeed. Energizing sessions Cornerstone VP of Content Summer Salomonsen, led a session about how to build modern and effective content strategies. Summer, who has a doctorate in Education, shared her pearls of wisdom on how to amplify your content strategy by stripping it down to the basics. When it comes to your content, she said, “Be authentic, be relevant and be brief.” Riddled with personal anecdotes and her classic one-liners, Summer showcased her knack for engaging the crowd while teaching them something new. On Wednesday afternoon, Katie Ballantyne, VP of product marketing and customer experience, was joined by Joe Kaylen, solutions consultant, to present the first-ever demo of Cornerstone’s new solutions ecosystem. The demo covered everything from our core products — like Cornerstone Learning and Cornerstone Performance — to recent advancements in our skills technology, new Cornerstone Originals content and the latest innovations to EdCast by Cornerstone. Katie and Joe took a room full of attendees on a ride through our latest and greatest. It was quite exciting to see everything come together! Fun with our brand Orange is the new blue — and we sure had fun with it! After launching our new brand last November, we haven’t had too many opportunities to show it off at live events. Last week, it all came together beautifully in our booth and on posters and displays around the venue. It welcomed people back to HR Tech and re-introduced Cornerstone to the crowd. We had swag galore (the squishy Cornerstone bots are our personal favorite!), and attendees never went thirsty. Between our champagne happy hour and our bloody mary bar, we kept the libations and conversations flowing. There was a renewed sense of energy and optimism at HR Tech this year. Perhaps it was the bright colors in our booth or the troves of people with smiles on their faces. This year’s HR Tech elicited a sense of rejuvenated energy. And we’re more ready than ever to jump back into this new world of work.
