Overall Satisfaction with Cornerstone OnDemand

We are currently using CSOD throughout the whole organization and have been for over a year. Throughout our time with the LMS we have enjoyed using several features, including building curriculums and encouraging learners through the use of badges. The feedback we receive from our employees is that they would like a little bit more of a "modern" look and for those who are not tech-savvy, it can be a bit intimidating to log in for the first time and to navigate throughout the LMS. It almost looks more like a back-end experience. Overall, there is a lot of features to explore on CSOD and we are learning more each day to improve our user experience.
  • Hosting video/scorm packages
  • Ability to upload certificates/badges
  • Integration with our HR Management Software
  • Overall look and feel for employees
  • More promotion of internal communities on the platform/easier access
  • Easier access to support via chat
  • Housing learning resources in one location - we have utilized communities for this.
We have implemented learning paths to support our employee's growth at different stages in their career with us. Every employee starts off with Stage 1 courses, which are complicacy related prior to moving on to Stage 2 courses, which are training specifically for their role. Once passed the initial training and onboarding, our employees move into optional and ongoing training certifications to continue to support them and their knowledge.
We previously used ClubConnect but switched over to Cornerstone as our company size grew to better support our learners. Club Connect was more visual for our learners, however, Cornerstone has more capabilities and advantages for us to use as engagement for our learners.

Overall, the LMS has a lot of features but is also quite complicated from an admin and user perspective. I am sure as I learn more that I will be able to enhance the experience for both myself and employees, but there is room for improvement to make CSOD more functional.
