ICYMI: What Went Down on the First Day of Convergence 2015

Cornerstone Editors

JULY 14, 2021

Our 13th annual conference, Cornerstone Convergence, kicked off yesterday with a question from CEO and founder Adam Miller that would guide conversations for the rest the day: "How can you reach your full potential—and help others reach theirs?"

The answer lies in empowering your people. And this starts with learning about the latest innovations, tools and trends in talent management: from collaborative learning to predictive analytics to mobile-friendly apps and more.

Keep reading to learn more about the innovative ideas shared at Convergence so far, follow @CSODConvergence on Twitter and join the conversation with #CSODConf15!

Democratizing Technology for HR

One of the biggest points of conversation was Cornerstone Edge, a new Platform-as-a-Service (Paas) solution that allows businesses to extend the Cornerstone solution in myriad ways using open APIs and drag-and-drop development tools. The news sparked musings and excitement about the opportunity for HR departments to develop custom apps and unlock the potential of the technology without coding skills.

This is huge! @CornerstoneInc clients can build 3rd party apps with vendors they want, not just those that pay the vendor?! #CSODConf15

Predicting the Future with Data

Another hot topic in the HR world is predictive analytics: using historical data to predict future workforce trends. We also announced Cornerstone Insights yesterday, a predictive analytics tool, and several partners and clients shared how they're already mining data insights to improve recruitment, performance, retention and compensation.

Big focus on data analytics in #CSODConf15 sessions, such as using machine learning to predict impact to retention from social feedback

@CornerstoneInc Big Data is like Doc & Marty in Back to the Future: use the data in the past to predict the future. Hello McFly. #CSODConf15

Creating a Culture of Learning

Learning took center stage on the first day of Convergence. As Nestlé Chief Learning Officer Fausto Palumbo told Miller during the morning's keynote address, learning leaders must create "laboratories of innovation" that consistently evolve to meet the needs of today's hyper-connected workforce. Other sessions showed how to do this through tapping into user-generated content, fostering collaboration and enabling mobile.

User-gen content is a way to replenish library as orgs move content to mobile-ready. Tile view w/ratings makes nav courses easy #CSODConf15

Turning Up the Beat

Last but not least, what's innovation without a little fun? We ended the first day with a performance from four-time Grammy Award winner Lenny Kravitz at our Client and Partner Appreciation Party. And yes, attire was appropriately listed as "rocker chic".
