BBVA Collaborates with Cornerstone to Implement Innovative Learning Strategies for Employees

BBVA and Cornerstone | September 12, 2022

Cornerstone OnDemand, Inc., a global leader in adaptive HR solutions, announced today that BBVA, a leading financial institution, is leveraging Cornerstone’s tools to develop and enhance its employee growth strategies and manage various talent areas, including recruitment, assessment, learning and mobility. More than a decade ago, BBVA began a digital transformation process that has accelerated in recent years as a result of the pandemic. The new jobs and competencies needed to ensure a successful business transformation represent a significant challenge, requiring an agile response from a talent development perspective. BBVA understood that one of the keys to adaptation was to accelerate and modernize its learning strategy for its workforce. This led the organization to create several innovative talent projects, each with the goal of giving its employees the most accessible and personalized learning and development tools. "Employees are the backbone of every great company, Therefore, investing in their learning and development has become a priority. Cornerstone has allowed us to create an ecosystem of interconnected tools that help us find, retain and train the best talent in our organization in a more agile way, as well as adapt to our current needs." -José María Monge, BBVA's global Head of Talent Solutions and Head of Talent and Culture South America Some of BBVA's most successful projects to date include: B-token Model This initiative uses gamification to make the online learning platform experience more rewarding, interactive and entertaining. Increased learning platform activity as a result of this innovative approach, while encouraging employees to continue to participate in training and development activities. Managed through Cornerstone's e-commerce solution, each course has an associated number of B-tokens, which are awarded to employees upon completion of the training. The more they increase their B-tokens balance, the more access they receive to additional advanced training, including a master's degree. Understanding that a company's know-how often resides with individuals, employees can also earn B-tokens by teaching specific skills to their own colleagues. The B-token model encourages more experienced employees to share their knowledge with other colleagues promoting knowledge sharing and boosting expertise at a Group-wide level. B-token have enabled our employees to access any training content of interest to them, whether online, virtual or face-to-face. In addition, it has great advantages for the bank as it allows us to promote those actions linked to our strategy, incentivising learning and creating a culture of growth and development, says José María Monge. “The Camp" Project The Camp is an initiative created by BBVA and accessed through Cornerstone. It has been designed to accelerate the "reskilling and upskilling" of employees. After identifying 14 core capabilities, BBVA designed training journeys with three levels of specialization. To promote the completion of these journeys, it developed internal gamification through the creation of The Camp. The game consists of a camp where each training journey becomes an expedition and each employee is a hiker, a beginner mountaineer or an advanced mountaineer, depending on how they progress in their expedition. The Camp gamification is accessed through the Cornerstone platform, as both tools are connected. Performance feedback and assessment Evaluating ongoing performance of BBVA employees is a continuous process that culminates in an annual evaluation with a 360-degree view. It incorporates performance feedback from managers, peers, collaborators, as well as colleagues from other areas that the employee may have worked in. BBVA integrated Cornerstone’s evaluation solution with Google Cloud to maximize efficiency in data consolidation process and results analysis, also supporting calibration workflows and customized growth and development plans. At Cornerstone, our greatest satisfaction comes when our clients take our solutions and create innovative strategies to nurture talent, BBVA has shown great initiative and creativity, adapting our tools to the specific learning and performance needs of its employees. We look forward to continuing to expand our partnership and helping BBVA grow,says Marc Altimiras, AVP Cornerstone South.

WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT

HiBob Introduces Workforce Planning to its HR Platform 'Bob'

HiBob | October 14, 2022

HiBob, the company behind Bob, the HR platform transforming how organizations operate in the modern world of work, today launches its native Workforce Planning module, designed to help companies optimize for efficiency by enabling them to easily plan, track, and analyze their positions and people data. Workforce planning is the process of building a robust organization through attracting, hiring, and training suitable candidates within each department. Businesses use workforce planning to avoid under or overstaffing and to support hiring employees with appropriate levels of knowledge, skills, and experience. Ultimately it allows businesses to reimagine their teams' structures, support their people's growth and by extension the company's overall success. Incorporating a workforce planning strategy enables companies to carefully respond to emerging economic or technological trends disrupting the workplace to build realistic business plans. It also ensures HR brings visibility and data to the finance team, and other executive stakeholders when deciding, executing, and tracking headcount planning. Companies that "workforce plan" are more likely to experience overall success through strategic control and care of staffing needs balanced with business requirements. HiBob used customer feedback to develop this highly valued use case, collaborating with a select group of over 25 early adopters. These included Eurowag, Parimatch, LHV, Danish Industry, Fiverr and Landa who all acted as design partners helping to define an MVP, and build the prototype that culminated in the final module. "Changes to the modern world of work caused by flexible, remote, hybrid models and dispersed teams have made HR technology imperative for business success. By the same token your workforce planning strategy needs to be equally as dynamic and agile. It impacts every department within an organization because it's more than just headcount planning, requiring cross-functional input. -Ronni Zehavi, CEO and co-Founder of HiBob It's the foundation of effective recruiting and hiring, it reduces spending, eliminates inefficient hiring practices, and enables accurate predictions of future job developments. Importantly it increases employee retention through higher levels of satisfaction. When all of these facets align with the company's long- term objectives and goals, workforce planning should ultimately help drive the business forward. HiBob's Workforce Planning module includes the ability to plan for cycles including the creation and evaluation of different scenarios such as re-organizations, acquisitions or other large-scale disruptive changes. It streamlines position planning, turning spreadsheets into living, running processes with full visibility, analytics, and accuracy for HR and finance teams. It also pulls analytics to identify any problems with the execution process, identifies skills gaps - and in this way helps with succession planning - as well as tracking internal mobility when filling planned positions. About HiBob HiBob is on a mission to transform how organizations operate in the modern world of work with its HR platform 'Bob'. Leading the way for the future workplace, Bob offers resilient, agile technology that wraps all the complexities of HR processes into a game changing, user-friendly tool that touches every employee across the business. HiBob is used by more than 2,500 multinational companies - including Cazoo, Gong, Hopin, Monzo, Happy Socks, Fiverr, and VaynerMedia. Organizations using Bob are able to accelerate hiring, retain the best talent, upskill and elevate employee engagement.
