    Cornerstone OnDemand

    Well suited for:
    • A busy environment where you want learners to be self-sufficient and to be able to access learning solutions at a time that suits them.
    • For anyone who wants to access learning using different platforms such as iPad, mobile, PC, etc
    • Anyone who needs a more in-depth learning solution rather than an overview of key learning points.

    Very good selection of products. However, some products which we thought were available in both English and Spanish were not, or there was an undisclosed added cost for providing the product in Spanish as well as English. More transparency needed on this.

    Pros

    Cornerstone OnDemand

    • Enables employees to draft work goals and collaborate with their supervisors on a final version - improves mutual understanding right up front.
    • Combines performance goal ratings with competency ratings and provides a blended score. Simplifies the goal weighting so you don't have to do any calculations.
    • 9-box matrix provides useful definitions and descriptions so managers can prepare development notes or plans for individual employees.

    Cons

    Cornerstone OnDemand

    • Would be good to have have a virtual "top level" (eg board) user built in to allow senior execs without a direct manager to be able to be set up with KPIs instead of having to create a dummy user
    • Reports have difficulty downloading if pop ups disabled or in some browser environments
    • When competencies are updated while a cycle is open, any changes don't effect that open cycle but only future ones. Would be nice to be able to have the option to apply changes to existing "open" cycles

      It's not that CSB isn't a decent performance management system, but we have decided to go with just one vendor (Workday) for an HRIS/performance management/payroll system so we can directly relate pay to performance. We are more interested in having just one system that "talks" to the other pieces instead of having to work with several vendors. It reduces the hassle of having to communicate with different support teams, having different contracts, and so on.

      Usability

      Cornerstone OnDemand

      There are specific things within the goals and competencies that are user-friendly. For example, the rating slider isn't great in my opinion. You can slide in between ratings which can create some odd scoring (if you use scoring). It seems a better solution would be a drop down where you select your rating. There are also some glitches in the system and have been told Cornerstone is aware of them but are focused on delivering new features. There are workarounds, but that doesn't seem to be a great answer.

      Performance

      Cornerstone OnDemand

      The saving process slows it down. It doesn’t auto save. If you leave a page, it will sometimes warn you, but not always. When you hit the save button, a window pops up that says creating/saving packets. It feels very archaic.

      My assistant could better address this issue. My perception is that there is not immediate assistance, and that there can be a wait for help. That is not a negative, just a perception. I have not used support in two years.

      I think we could have done a better job of rolling out the tool to our managers. We were under a tight timeline. In the training, we showed them everything and said go do it by this date. Looking back, I would have done it in pieces: for example, 2 weeks to write goals, 2 weeks to get sign-off from direct reports. I just let them go at it. Since then we’ve moved to agile development environment and are applying the technique to everything. In future would only do through change sprint. It is a big change I didn’t take it seriously enough.

      I had a team of 3 project managing. You need a champion from every department to make sure you’re getting it right and to make sure what’s happening is communicated. It’s not something you can do without input from department heads

      Lesson.ly has been great to work with but it is a very clear and simple, user-friendly system that anyone can pick up with very little training as it is self-explanatory. It also has a great mobile interface and lots of different features that are easy to add for the admin but really impactful for the user.

      OpenSesame partnered with our LMS platform provider, and the provider recommended OpenSesame, so we use them.

      Return on Investment

      Cornerstone OnDemand

      • It's tool and it's only as good as the person wielding it. The investment in PiiQ was accompanied by a quarterly cadence and manager feedback training. We feel like our employees are given regular feedback and bonuses are tied to objective accomplishment.
