SANTA MONICA, Calif, June 17, 2014 – Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ: CSOD), a global leader in cloud-based talent management software solutions, today announced it has been named a Leader in the 2014 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Talent Management Suites report.
Introduced in 2013, the report has placed Cornerstone in the Leaders quadrant for the second year in a row based on the company’s “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute.” As noted in the report, “talent management suites are an integrated set of applications, including workforce planning, talent acquisition, performance appraisal/assessment, goals management, career development, succession management, learning management and compensation management.”
According to the report, “Leaders demonstrate a market-defining vision of how talent management technology can help HR leaders achieve business objectives. Leaders have the ability to execute against that vision through products, services, and demonstrated, solid business results in the form of revenue and earnings. In talent management suites, Leaders show a consistent ability to win broad suite deals. They have significant successful customer deployments in North America, EMEA and the Asia/Pacific region in a wide variety of vertical industries, with multiple proof points. Leaders are often what other providers in the market measure themselves against.
Developed completely in-house with a proven product and services model, Cornerstone’s unified talent management suite helps organizations of all sizes and across a wide variety of industries to source and recruit top talent, develop and engage employees throughout their careers, improve business execution, cultivate future leaders, and enable external networks of customers, vendors and distributors.
