Enable hiring collaboration. Hiring new employees is a team effort at New Belgium, and company leaders rely on the recruiting solution to support collaboration on candidate assessments. “Our teams across the country can now work together to make joint hiring decisions.,” said Briggs. “When we hire people, we have teams of people who look at applicants to say, ‘should we hire that person into our team?’ Even if we have a remote team of five people, that team is able to collaborate. They can see the same data and operate from the same place.”
Attracted and retained millennials. With the Learning Cloud, the State can offer millennials dynamic learning and social opportunities, key to engaging a generation that places a premium on collaboration. “Traditionally, people have viewed state employment as lacking upward mobility or technological advancement. As we draw in younger talent, we need to be more flexible and show we’re doing a lot of fun and exciting things,” said Roberson. “Cornerstone helps us achieve this with more engaging learning opportunities, individual career paths and social collaboration.”

Walgreens’ executives rolled out Cornerstone’s Performance Cloud in stages, using year one to teach managers how to create custom performance reviews and 360-degree reviews, identify competency and skill gaps, and perform compensation modeling. “With the Performance Cloud, we now have a performance management process that is continual as opposed to once or twice a year,” said Reilly. “This gives us the opportunity to be more flexible in making changes and being more effective in real time, rather than waiting for a yearly analysis to see where we need to make changes.”

Yet with more than 95,000 associates, cultivating a personalized performance management experience was challenging. Hyatt also lacked talent visibility. “We’d tried many manual-based talent management systems, but it was very challenging to keep information up-to-date. Not having a system in place that integrated with our HR systems and not having the ability for each associate to update their own career preferences made having up-to-date information very challenging,” said Goldberg.

MetroPCS invested in Extended Enterprise in 2011, just one month after their initial inquiry. Wecsler’s team leapt into action, working closely with Cornerstone to manage configuration. Cornerstone’s hands-on approach was a critical factor in customizing the system to meet MetroPCS’ tracking and reporting requirements. When MetroPCS needed a means of running reports related to courses taken, Cornerstone quickly devised a way to incorporate data on a daily basis from a prepared list of all dealer doors and a key component in the self-registration process.

More easily identified high-potential employees. AccorHotels’ previous manual review process didn’t allow Gibson and her team access to the big picture view of their talent, which was highly detrimental to the organization’s ability to plan for succession. “With our previous system, it was so difficult to consolidate performance data in one place. Plus, we weren’t measuring potential,” said Gibson. “With Cornerstone Growth Edition’s nine-box grid, I can see the entire organization. I am able to drill down and see where people fit and what their potential is. It allows us to see whom we should be talking to when opportunities come up and where common gaps are.”

Enable more organic communication and collaboration during courses. Previously, creating interaction between learning communities required a directive—instead of an organic, collaborative approach. “We would tell learners to read a blog post and engage with their peers by posting two comments, but it wasn’t a natural interaction,” said Quinn. “With Collaborative Learning, we’re going to be able to do that a lot more organically. We won’t be dependent on any workarounds. We expect a lot more organic participation from employees, and I think people will be more excited.”

Finding and evaluating new agents for thousands of seats worldwide is a challenging and laborious process. Sourcing smartly is crucial: successful call center agents consistently demonstrate a wide range of tangible and intangible characteristics, qualities that aren’t immediately obvious from attendance records or traditional skills tests. Yet Harte-Hanks’ existing staffing agency still evaluated candidates primarily on demonstrable skills and the agency’s “gut-level” estimation of any one candidate. As result, Harte-Hanks wrestled with high attrition rates and less than optimal productivity—both detrimental to the company’s bottom line. “Recruiting and training is a pure cost for an outsourcer, so high attrition is a huge issue,” said Kristin Huber, HR business partner at Harte-Hanks.

In late 2009, GECU implemented a vendor review program that initially evaluated more than 15 talent management providers. This list was soon reduced to a handful of cloud-based, full-featured providers that could both reduce the manpower hours needed to provide and manage employee training and increase the ratio of online courses to instructor-led courses. Short-list criteria also included a system’s ability to streamline internal and external reporting and compliance processes.
