reworked – Is Content Still King in Corporate Learning?

Many HR technology vendors have upped the development of content and engagement tools in recent years, but Cornerstone OnDemand stands out for the time, attention and dollars the company has channeled into making content an integral component of its platform and solutions. In March, Cornerstone acquired the learning experience platform provider EdCast. When announcing the deal, Cornerstone said it hoped to create a “next generation technology blueprint for the future-ready workforce.” Buzzwords aside, the companies, which are expected to continue to operate independently for a time, promised to develop new approaches to experiential learning, content and skill-building, all the while creating a unified and scalable talent infrastructure. Brent Skinner, director and principal analyst at North Billerica, Mass., analyst firm 3Sixty Insights, sees the EdCast acquisition as […]

Recent Research: Research Preview: Where and How Is HCM Best at Improving the Employee Experience? In his research preview, Brent Skinner, co-founder of 3Sixty Insights and lead for the firm’s HCM technology practice, elaborates on his question: Where and How Is HCM Best at Improving the Employee Experience? That everything about HCM is impactful and quantifiable has huge implications vis-à-vis where and how HCM most contributes to negative, neutral or positive employee sentiment, an important measurable expression of the quality of the employee experience. Much of this activity occurs outside HR’s inherent purview, and one implication of this is that most organizational leaders should take HCM seriously and begin practicing it. Market Alert: Cornerstone’s Acquisition of EdCast Creates First Mature End-To-End Future-Of-Work Learning Suite From […]

HR Tech Alliance - Town Hall Cornerstone Acquisition

HR Tech Alliances Town Hall | Cornerstone’s Acquisition of EdCast with Brent Skinner of 3Sixty Insights

Brent Skinner, our co-founder and HCM practice lead, was recently the featured guest on HR Tech Alliances’ Weekly Town Hall. During his appearance, he shared his thoughts on the following: This month’s acquisition of EdCast by Cornerstone brings many benefits to both vendors. The most significant benefit, however, is the one this acquisition, once complete, brings to the market itself: the industry’s first mature end-to-end future-of-work learning suite from a single vendor. Once again, we see that Cornerstone is a bona fide agile 800lbs gorilla in corporate learning, equipped with all the fixings that modern on-the-job learning and career development necessitate: AI, machine learning LXP, LMS, content, etc. Other solution providers in learning, even those who play just around its edges, must now figure out […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat: Informing Artificial Intelligence

For this episode of the #HRTechChat video podcast, AbilityMap CEO and Co-Founder Mike Erlin and Mike Bollinger, vice president of strategic initiatives at Cornerstone OnDemand, joined me to discuss a crucially important area of focus: at this still-early stage of its development, helping to ensure that we inform artificial intelligence with the best human-centric data possible. After all, most of us would like to think that the behavior of AI, as it grows eventually to an exceptionally high level of sophistication and begins to take over higher-level decision-making, will continue to reflect what we hold dear as “humanness.” Another way of putting this is to say human empathy is critical to the development of AI. And, in an irony that was lost on none of […]
