Santa Monica, California (PressExposure) November 02, 2011 -- Learning and talent management software provider Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ: CSOD) today announced that Jason Corsello, Cornerstone's vice president of corporate development and strategy, will lead a panel discussion examining talent management technology challenges and opportunities at this week's HR Tech Europe 2011 conference, 2-3 November in Amsterdam. The session, "Using Technology to Foster an Empowered Workforce," is scheduled for 10:05 - 11:00 a.m. CET on day two of the conference.
Panellists participating in the session include executives representing premier Cornerstone clients such as Barclays, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and Virgin Media, which uses Cornerstone's solutions for learning management, performance management, succession planning and enterprise social networking.
"Integrating social networking functionality into our learning and talent system allows us to better leverage the inherent creativity and expertise of our staff and capture valuable organisational knowledge," said James Iles, head of employee learning for Virgin Media and one of the featured session panellists. "Empowering our employees to create and share their own content is an acknowledgement of the fact that every person makes a vital contribution to the success of the business. And when integrated with learning and development initiatives, it helps employees to have an even greater degree of power over their own personal learning experience."
Corsello also will join other industry leaders from a number of Europe's leading businesses for a panel discussion titled, "Hard Talk: Hard-Hitting Industry Panel." In the session, Corsello and other executives will share their views on talent management technology trends and best practices. The session is scheduled for 2:15 - 3:15 p.m. CET on day one of the conference.
"Social technologies, mobile applications and workforce analytics are big technology trends in talent management, and cloud solutions are the enablement component that links them all together," said Corsello. "There are many different views of what cloud and SaaS solutions are, but there is only one true flavour, and that is pure, multitenant SaaS. You need to have one platform and one version to build out these extended capabilities in the right way and to ensure that your software solution can evolve with you as business needs change."
