  Why Cornerstone for performance management?

Cornerstone will better support our efforts to improve talent management. Establishing individual employee goals and aligning them with department goals not only enhances performance, but builds collaborative relationships between employees, teams and their supervisors focused on using dialogue and feedback as developmental tools. All goals, updates and comments will be gathered into the end-of-year final evaluation.
