Everything you should be doing right now with your Cornerstone platform…

  • Trace it: monitor adoption of this content and adoption of similar titles (see what we did here…?)
  • Curate it: pull it into meaningful playlists and curricula
  • Promote key themes: Health and Safety at home, wellbeing and mental health should all be featuring topics
  • Re-boarding curricula: support those returning from furlough with a helpful curriculum to settle them back into work


  • Clean it: ensure people data is up to date and accurate
  • Fix it: ensure data feeds are working correctly
  • Analyse it: what does your data tell you about trends in your organisation i.e. Learning, development etc
  • Slice it: set up reports for managers so that they can view key data for their teams easily
  • Dice it: get creative with the way you present data and create colourful dashboards for managers showing last user access, training status summary, goal progress etc
  • 2.0 it: Reporting 2.0 will become the default analytics tool next year, so start using it now
