Cornerstone updates mobile app to help HR professional remember staff

Connected world

Talent management SaaS provider Cornerstone OnDemand has upgraded its mobile application to assist HR staff in remembering employees.

The firm promised further enhancements to support employees with onboarding and recruiting, learning, performance and collaboration. The app has seen improvements in mobile recruiting functions, file accessibility tools, training portals and task checklists.

The key enhancement is its mobile “Do you know” game that tests employees’ knowledge of their colleagues, helping teams to get to know each other quickly and stay connected.

Its mobile recruiting function allows candidates to search and apply for jobs directly from their smartphones or tablets, and recruiters now have access to review candidates, schedule interviews and review requisition fill details while on-the-go.

Users can also use the app to access transcripts and launch mobile-enabled courses both while online or offline. This, the firm said, would increase adoption and impact of training initiatives.

Users have the ability to provide feedback and award badges to colleagues for their performance and contributions on goals and projects. The vendor said this would provide the organisation with up-to-date access to skills, competency reviews and performance activities.

The app now also has access to a Mobile Observation Checklist that assigns validators or verifiers to assess competence or successful completion of tasks as employees are in the workplace.

"As the workforce becomes increasingly mobile, global and hyper-connected, employees expect real-time connectivity with their coworkers and instant access to the information they need, when they need it," said Adam Miller, founder and chief executive of Cornerstone OnDemand.

"We continue to innovate on the Cornerstone Mobile suite to allow employees to obtain the essential tools and resources they require on a daily basis to be the most productive at their jobs – whether it’s mobile learning and training, collaboration, performance, or recruiting."
