The US-based company, which has European offices in London, Paris, Munich and Tel Aviv, will demonstrate how Cornerstone’s software and services provide one centralised, highly graphical view of an organisation’s talent activity, including learning and talent management tools and resources, to help in engaging and empowering their workforce.

Cornerstone also provides extended enterprise solutions to help organisations collaborate with and train customers, vendors and other partners. As a multi-tenant, multi-user Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Cornerstone provides a faster, more efficient way for companies to evolve and manage their talent strategy without the hassles of version upgrades and IT costs.

Cornerstone’s integrated talent management suite is now available in 13 languages and serves more than a million users around the world.

"Never before have managers been able to truly get a holistic view of how their employees’ learning and development activities impact performance, succession and organisational success," said Vincent Belliveau, Cornerstone OnDemand’s General Manager, EMEA.

"Our integrated learning and talent management software is configurable for each user, giving it both extreme flexibility and ease of use," Belliveau added.

"Moreover, as a Software-as-a-Service offer, there is no installation or customisation work required.

"This means customers can reap the benefits of Cornerstone’s Talent Management Suite in just a few weeks, as well as benefit from a lower total cost ownership. In addition, users are guaranteed to always access the latest version of the software."

Cornerstone recently was positioned in the ‘Leaders’ Quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Corporate Learning Systems (CLS) report (June 2008), which positions vendors according to their ability to execute and their completeness of vision. Additionally, Cornerstone was named as one of the world’s top three talent management software providers in Bersin & Associates' study, ‘Talent Management Suites: Market Realities, Implementation Experiences, and Vendor Profiles, 2008.’

"At this year’s Zukunft Personal, we’re giving key decision makers in talent management the chance to try out our products for themselves," Belliveau said.

Notes for Editors

About Zukunft Personal (
The first Zukunft Personal was held in 2000, in Karlsruhe, Germany but the event then moved to Cologne.

The two day event now attracts nearly 500 exhibitors and over 6,000 ‘business decision maker level’ visitors – making Zukunft Personal the largest HR exhibition in Germany. In addition to the exhibition, Zukunft Personal includes practical forums as well as ‘action zones’, where business coaches go through their paces.

Among other things, this year’s event will outline how new technology, demographic change and increasing globalisation are changing the way we work. According to Zukunft Personal keynote speaker Dennis R. Briscoe, Professor emeritus at the University of San Diego, work is now characterised by ‘VUCA’: volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. Briscoe believes that the keys to success in this climate is to invest in human capital while aiming to remain innovative and flexible.

Since the demands of the workplace are changing, many HR managers have to adapt job descriptions as well as training and remuneration systems to meet these new conditions. Briscoe believes that a general lack of available talent is a challenge to HR management because it makes recruiting more difficult.
