Cornerstone OnDemand Launches New 'Holistic Employee Growth Experience' Product
HR technology firm Cornerstone OnDemand announced the release of its newest product Cornerstone Xplor this week.
Santa Monica, Calif.-based Cornerstone OnDemand said the Xplor platform is meant to serve as a “holistic people growth experience that delivers a fully integrated and hyper-personalized journey of learning, skill development, growth and career mobility for every person.”
Learning experience platforms have taken a larger role in employee development in recent years as companies have looked to create customized learning pathways for individual employees.
As that LXP market has grown, Cornerstone sees an opportunity to bring the entire employee development journey into one application. Cornerstone Xplor gives talent leaders the ability to "deliver a modern, engaging and individual experience to their people, while ensuring the experience leverages the investments they’ve already made and is fully aligned to their organizational goals."
Cornerstone Xplor features include:

Maintaining a Human-Centered Approach During Digital Transformation
When it comes to digital transformation - people drive change, not technology
- Skills alignment: Individual users select skills they’d like to have as well as skills they’d like to ignore. That information is used to suggest learning opportunities and relevant content, connect them with mentors and subject matter experts, engage them in communities of practice, and identify potential career paths. Companies can build skill pools, create data visualizations and identify internal experts.
- Scalable, self-driven development: Xplor uses artificial intelligence technology to allow individual employees to "self drive" and generate personalized learning and skill paths, access relevant content in the moment of need and make connections to mentors.
- Talent marketplace: Internal mobility technology matches people and skills to potential new career paths and a marketplace of mentors, jobs, gigs and projects that allows individual employees to pursue their own growth path.
“Our customers are looking to Cornerstone to help them create a more human approach to their people experience. At the same time, they need to ensure their businesses are set up for transformation and for the skills and careers of tomorrow,” said Phil Saunders, Cornerstone CEO, in a press release statement. “Our vision for a new system of work is designed to help our customers and their people meet this evolving nature of work, together. Cornerstone Xplor is a key part of that vision. People can create their own growth experience that’s uniquely personal, and talent leaders can cultivate a workforce of connected, thriving people who are aligned in purpose and success.”
Clearlake Capital Group completed its acquisition of Cornerstone in October, acquiring outstanding shares of company stock for $57.50 per share and taking the formerly publicly traded company private. Cornerstone has more than 6,000 customers and 75 million users in 180 countries and across 50 languages, according to company statistics.
Cornerstone Xplor is available now for all Cornerstone customers, and will be available to customers of Saba Software, which the company acquired in 2020, by the end of 2021.
