Cornerstone OnDemand, a cloud-based talent management software solutions provider, has announced that Maersk has selected its learning management system (LMS), Cornerstone Learning, and Cornerstone Connect, which is Cornerstone’s social collaboration application, to deliver learning and development in order to ensure compliance across its organisation.
Maersk plans to use the system to enable anytime, anywhere learning for its staff, which means in the office or on an oil rig and deliver a variety of training methods, including instructor-led training and e-learning.
The agreement was signed in the autumn of 2015 and provides Maersk with solutions to help its employees access important training courses and collaborate with their peers, no matter their location or network connection, via mobile, collaborative and offline learning capabilities.
Mads Ingholt, Head of Leadership Development at Maersk, said: “We knew we needed a modern, robust system to manage our people, and it was important to us to have a system that promoted collaboration through learning.
“Additionally, offline learning through Cornerstone will allow our remote workforce to complete training and compliance certifications in locations like oil rigs, while our flexible workforce can train on a smartphone from home or any location.
“Cornerstone learning will make it convenient and simple for our employees to continue to develop professionally and stay up-to-date with training and compliance.”
Vincent Belliveau, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at Cornerstone OnDemand, said: “We’re thrilled to offer Maersk comprehensive learning and development solutions that will enable them to help their employees realise their potential.
“We’re firm believers in the value of collaborative, mobile and offline learning as part of an overall blended learning strategy.
“Many of our clients who have taken a similar approach with their learning strategies have seen impressive results in terms of better employee engagement and an overall more productive workforce.”
