The successful implementation of a solution like Cornerstone requires a collaborative effort between the solution provider and the company, with both parties having important responsibilities throughout the process to ensure success and desired outcomes.
Companies that implement performance management systems, like Cornerstone, realize huge administrative savings and set the stage for dynamic performance conversations. Long gone are the days when our HR professionals can be effective by collecting performance data on paper forms and storing them in file folders. Administrators and HR managers are more efficient when multiple processes like training, performance, recruiting, and compensation are centralized into one system. A solution like Cornerstone alleviates cumbersome bouncing between program windows and measurement tools to deliver intricate data insights that work together without manual interpretation.
Once you decide to invest in a technology solution, the next big hurdle is how to do it. How does a company take historical data, integrate multiple processes that are managed by multiple people, and break through the ‘this is how we always do it’ mindset? When selecting a solution provider to implement, companies find the best success when working with a highly collaborative partner. The company and the solution provider need to take the time upfront to understand the expertise each brings to the process. Each party needs to be open to learning, listening, and discovering the best path forward together.
