ICYMI: Exploring the Future of Talent Management at Convergence 2016

Cornerstone Editors

JULY 14, 2021

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.

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.
