A full-fledged talent management platform, Cornerstone isn't just for large companies; it's also the ideal platform for small businessess who are growing and in need of a more robust, configurable, and customizable solution. "Cornerstone would give us more capabiligies as we grew, including development and succession planning," sais Leeza Law, H&S Specialist/L&D Advisor at Vitaco. "It would enable us to standardize our approach to induction and onboarding."
Ensuring all talent management tools were in one place was also a priority. "Today, we have Cornerstone Performance and Cornerstone Learning. We're working on Cornerstone Succession," said Law.
Enabled professional development through self-directed learning, accelerated new hire preparedness with values-centric onboarding, gained confidence in meeting compliance regulations, linked learning development to performance, saved time with automated reviews.
Enabled professional development through self-directed learning. Vitaco employees don’t need permission to access more than 1,500 online courses, ranging from health & wellness and business skills to office productivity.
“Across the board, we want to retain people,” said Law. “It’s crucial that we develop them and give them the opportunity to grow with the business, even if the courses they’re interested in don’t relate directly to their current position within Vitaco.”
Vitaco has a broad range of employee roles, from management, sales, marketing, and finance to factory and warehouse teams—and everyone is using Cornerstone. “Employees use it for required curriculum like compliance training, but they’re also searching for career development courses and doing a lot of self-directed learning,” said Law.
Accelerated new hire preparedness with values-centric onboarding. “We use Cornerstone to help new employees understand what’s expected of them, how they fit into the bigger picture at Vitaco,” said Law. “We’re very values-driven, so the ability to induct new hires into those values before they come on board has had a huge impact. When they come to work, they already understand who we are as business.”
Gained confidence in meeting compliance regulations. As manufacturer and distributor of health and nutrition products, Vitaco must comply with numerous compliance regulations. “Compliance is really important for us, especially from a health and safety perspective,” said Law.
“One of the biggest benefits to having Cornerstone is we can finally say ‘yes’ with confidence to any compliance questions. We know—and can show— that all of our team members have taken compliance training and that they understand all the policies an procedures around health and safety an fair treatment.”
Linked learning & development to performance. By using Cornerstone Performance and Cornerstone Learning in tandem, Vitaco can tie development planning to performance reviews—andvice versa. “Good performance starts with good development planning,” said Law. “From our perspective, linking learning and performance gives our employees the option to improve and work through the next steps. Employees are automatically prompted to complete their development planning when they’re doing their reviews. They understand what their goals are and what it is that they want to do next in their careers.”
