The Age of Experience

Thanks to technology and innovative thinking, we’re now at a point where we can help to make personalized experiences a reality – both gathering information to understand one’s needs and delivering a customized experience to individuals. In this year’s opening Convergence keynote, our founder and CEO, Adam Miller, will share how this thinking is inspiring innovation at Cornerstone, whether it is the user experience, the employee experience, the candidate experience or the client experience.

Over the past two decades the relationship between employer and employee has evolved from a transactional one, into one of engagement. But engagement of the individual with the organization is not enough. Engagement is giving way to employee experience – an experience that brings together HCM technology, strategy, and leadership to help the organization align and deliver customer results.

Organizations are also realizing that their human capital technologies need to deliver more than just one experience. They need to be powerful transaction engines for administrative users. They need to be simple to use and be meaningful for individuals. And they need to deliver information that helps business leaders make better decisions. These are very different views of the role of technology – solutions for them, me, and we.

Based on the latest research from Aptitude Research Partners, this session will address how top performing companies are leveraging their investment in human capital technology to bring to life to an employee experience based on:

  • Communication: Bridging the gap between employer and employee through more frequent and bidirectional communications.
  • Personalization: Providing a personalized experience to meet the needs of HR practitioners, business leaders, and employees from one unified solution.
  • Simplification: Lowering the barriers to access information and execute key process so people can focus on the work and the results.

Creating Moments That Matter

In recent years, there has been a lot of talk about improving "experience." The customer experience. The patient experience. The employee experience. But how do you accomplish that goal? How do you create moments that are memorable and meaningful? During his Convergence keynote, drawing from his forthcoming book, The Power of Moments, Heath will reveal the four elements that create defining moments. Armed with an understanding of these elements, we can be the authors of moments that spark delight, connection and insight.

Bringing Your Vision to Life: How Altria Made Its Learner-Centric Approach a Reality

As the approach to effective learning rapidly evolves, learning and development organizations face a multitude of challenges to stay current and relevant. Obtaining executive buy-in, budget investment and resources can often seem overwhelming. In this panel discussion, Altria’s Learning & Development team will share how they brought their vision to life with a corporate university and drove a holistic approach to learning across multiple business units and corporate entities. Hear about Altria’s “spark” that drove change and how a disciplined, 4-stage approach keeps the team on track to achieve their goals. Altria will also share examples of how they transformed the learner experience through simplicity of design, custom learning paths, gamification and enabling social interaction.
