  • While we have saved the company overall, the costs for the many previous LMS were spread across the business. Now centralized it draws negative budget attention for the significant spend to have a single LMS against one departments budget.
  • The continued investment to improve usability has been nearly double the licensing costs themselves. You do not get everything you need from Cornerstone OnDemand, but need to enlist partner companies to deliver your configuration needs.

  • We needed a system that would help us switch from all in person training to online content and blended content and it does that with an easy to use interface.
  • In person session scheduling and tracking used to be a pain and the no show rate was high using ILT and having the registration easy to use and have calendar appointments emailed on registration has increased our attendance.
  • Playlists have allowed up to move our learning culture forward as we can connect content by topics and it makes it easy for our staff to pick what they want to take on that topic.

  • It allows us to quickly deploy training to meet our compliance needs within our complex organization and allows us to track completion towards those needs.
  • It allows us to manage, track performance as a company, and participate in my performance process as an employee.
  • It allows us to use prebuilt APIs, although I think we need more, to get and put data into our platform in a timely manner.

  • Robust reporting allows managers to stay on top of training and lower the number of past due training assignments.
  • Customizable email notifications allow administrators to send targeted reminder emails for compliance training, ensuring on-time completions and lowering the number of access removals due to incomplete training.

  • We are in the process of trying to increase employee engagement through content expansion. We are in the early stages of this.
  • The Edge Import Tool, in conjunction with Reporting 2.0, has done a great job of helping to automate/semi-automate tasks for huge time savings.
  • Maintaining compliance. Achieved through dynamic/automated groups, assignments, communication, and reporting.

  • It helps us reach local HR and compliance objectives and needs. But, I don't have much visibility on this item as these metrics are calculated at a different level.
  • Access to the LMS outside the working premises (via the Mobile LearnApp)
  • Use CSOD as the main LMS and centralize the training activity - linkage with Coursera, perioding uploads from other external training platforms

  • Cornerstone has saved us a significant amount on travel costs for training. We still use classroom training for certain position in the company, however, it has allowed us to distribute ongoing training to the field employees as it is available.
