Partnering: The Pendolino Group
Small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) today are tasked with doing more with less. Lean HR teams are challenged with going beyond maintaining accurate employee records to ensuring an overall positive employee experience from hire to retire. Pendolino Group, one of Cornerstone OnDemand’s longest standing consulting partners in the SMB space, provides PiiQ by Cornerstone customers with performance management best practices. With the world of performance management undergoing rapid changes, Pendolino’s consultants help PiiQ clients develop and execute a performance management process that meets the demands of today’s modern workforce.
Through Pendolino’s highly experienced business consulting approach, they are able to guide the process as well as manage the configuration to get you up and running smoothly. Not only does the partnership between Pendolino Group and Cornerstone help new administrators get started on the right foot, but it also supports rolling out PiiQ to managers and employees to ensure a seamless adoption across the organization.
Most internal “product champions” do not have the bandwidth to take on configuration themselves. By leveraging highly experienced business consultants, the configuration process is streamlined and you get to know all of the best practices for configuring up your system, setting you up for success from the get go.
Product Utilization, Maximized
Pendolino Group not only helps streamline the deployment process, but they also bring performance management best practices directly to the client. Dedicated HR consultants educate clients on what successful performance management looks like - beyond simply configuring a system and rolling out review forms.
Designed For You
Having Pendolino Group as a consulting partner ensures that the project stays on track, hits the timeline, and is designed appropriately for your company. Performance management is not a one-size-fits-all approach, and Pendolino Group ensures that PiiQ is set up to best support your organization’s unique processes.
“It was a great pleasure to work with the Pendolino Group on PiiQ. They were competent, informative, responsible, reliable and kind. They answered every question and took care of every request quickly and with ease. Few software implementations have been this easy. I truly appreciate their professionalism and care and highly recommend them." --Terrance Lim, CEO, Pet Food Express
The most common challenge in rolling out a new solution is adoption, and the key to adoption is successful deployment. With Pendolino’s consultants guiding you step-by-step through configuration, they ensure the tool is customized to match your company’s process, leading to higher adoption among your managers and employees.
As product experts, Pendolino Group offers train-the-trainer, manager/employee training sessions, providing organizations with real-time, meaningful reference points regarding trends in performance management. The consultant can also answer any tricky or complex questions that arise during these trainings with ease and confidence.
Change Management Support
Pendolino Group’s experience goes beyond product expertise to helping you with internal change management. They help clients integrate performance management practices, supported by the PiiQ solution, into their business operations with consulting discussions focused on culture, change management, and talent management.
