SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- May 02, 2013
Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ:CSOD), a global leader in cloud-based talent
management software solutions, today announced the agenda and speaker lineup
for its annual client conference, Convergence 2013, to be held June 3-5 at the
Marriott Marquis in San Diego, Calif.
Cornerstone’s signature event connects learning, HR and talent management
professionals and thought leaders from around the world to examine workforce
trends, discuss talent management issues and best practices, and explore the
role of technology in attracting, developing and managing a 21^st century
Adam Miller, Cornerstone’s founder and CEO, will explore these topics,
including how globalization, generational shifts, new attitudes towards work
and the consumerization of IT are impacting our clients and influencing
Cornerstone’s product innovation, during his opening keynote presentation,
which will be streamed live to Cornerstone’s Web site.
“The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Reimagine Work,’ which reflects our
belief that today’s workplace is in the midst of real and sustained change,”
said Miller. “Today’s employees not only want flexibility in where and how
they work, but they also want to be developed, recognized and connected at
their workplace. From helping teams collaborate and communicate more
effectively to making performance more transparent and actionable, we aim to
inspire attendees to examine and evolve their thinking about how they empower
their workforce and drive business success.”
