"The conference will benefit all levels of clients, with various degrees of project involvement, and will include workshops and best practices for all areas of Cornerstone's functionality."

CyberU, in conjunction with Corpedia, a privately held e-Learning company that specializes in Internet-based business management and compliance and ethics training, will host compliance workshops, as a value-added addition to this year's agenda. The workshops, entitled 'New Issues in Compliance' and 'Rolling out Compliance Courses and High-Volume Courses -- Strategies and Logistics,' are aimed at keeping Cornerstone OnDemand clients up-to-date on the ever-changing compliance standards in specific industries as well as general compliance regulations specific to regions within the U.S.

"CyberU's annual client conference is an enlightening experience, not only because of the opportunity to preview their innovative product enhancements, but because the conference provides a forum to share ideas and network with other Cornerstone OnDemand clients," said Kim Ziprik, National Manager, Client & Talent Education, Randstad. "Every client uses the system in a unique way, and having the opportunity to discuss the different business advantages Cornerstone provides in a non-competitive environment, will contribute greatly to Randstad's continued success with our HCM initiatives."
