Frequently Asked Questions

Who can join Cornerstone’s Customer Referral Program?

We encourage all Cornerstone Small & Medium Business clients, i.e. clients with fewer than 1,000 employees at their organization, within the United States and Canada to participate in the program. If you are familiar with the Cornerstone solution, you know firsthand how it can benefit other businesses. Help your HR peers spend less time on paperwork and more time focusing on their people and business success. We appreciate you spreading the word about Cornerstone!

What happens after I sign up?

Once you enter your email address into the form above, you’ll be enrolled in the program and can instantly share your unique referral link via social and email. You’ll also receive a welcome email that contains your unique referral link and login credentials to the referral portal. Make sure you save this email for future reference.

How can I invite my network? How will Cornerstone follow up with referrals?

Once you have joined the referral program, you can share your unique referral link via social, email, and text. We suggest logging into the referral portal to use the editable default share messaging whenever you want to share Cornerstone with your network of HR professionals, or specific individuals you know who might be interested in Cornerstone. If someone clicks on your referral link and submits the form to get in touch with Cornerstone, a sales expert will reach out to them within 48 hours. 

Who should I refer? What companies are the best fit for Cornerstone?

The best referrals are HR professionals at growing businesses that want to streamline & automate HR processes ranging from compliance training and learning & development to performance reviews, succession planning, and feedback. Cornerstone can help companies looking for a modern unified talent management strategy that supports the acquisition of the right skills, alongside ongoing employee development, engagement, and retention. If you know someone working at an organization with fewer than 1,000 employees that could benefit from Cornerstone, send them our way! 

What can I earn? Do all referrals qualify for rewards? 

Program participants choose how they want to be rewarded, whether it is gift cards or tree donations through our partner National Forest Foundation. When your referral completes a demo, you'll earn a $50 Visa Prepaid Gift Card or plant 50 trees. When your referral signs a contract, you'll earn a $200 Visa Prepaid Gift Card or plant 200 trees. To be eligible for a reward, your referred lead must be from an organization with under 1,000 employees. 

Is there a limit to how much I can earn?

Yes, there is a limit of $599.99 to the amount of gift cards you can earn in a calendar year. However, there is no limit to the number of contributions to tree planting. By enrolling in the program, you acknowledge that you are participating in a program where you will earn Visa Prepaid Gift Cards unless you opt to plant trees. Please note, if you reach your limit for gift cards, we will attribute your referral rewards towards tree planting.

When will I receive my gift card?

For qualified referrals, rewards will be paid for a completed demo, and if your referral signs a contract. These rewards, also known as approved commissions, will be emailed via a prepaid e-card every Monday. Please note, webinar attendance or the pre-recorded demo download does not count as a completed demo. 

How will I know if someone uses my link?

Log into the referral portal to view stats on shares, clicks, referrals, and commissions for the last 180 days.

How do I track my rewards?

Sign in to the referral portal at any time to track your referrals and rewards. After enrolling in the program, you’ll receive a welcome email with a temporary password to sign in to the portal. Once you’ve logged in, you can update your password within your account settings. If you’ve forgotten your password, you can go here to request a password reset.

How can I learn more about the Go Green Tree Planting Initiative?

Thanks for your interest! Cornerstone is excited and honored to support U.S. reforestation efforts in partnership with the National Forest Foundation. If you prefer to invest your rewards into Tree Planting or cannot accept monetary rewards per company policy, please adjust your preferred payment within the referral portal under "My Account". Here's how it works: when your referral gets a demo, 50 trees will be planted on your behalf, plus an additional 200 trees will be planted when your referral becomes a Cornerstone customer.


Regardless of how you want to be rewarded, Cornerstone will donate 10 trees to National Forest Foundation for every referral you send our way. Those who opt into tree donations will receive quarterly progress email updates about the number of trees planted, reforestation efforts, and overall impact. If you have any questions or issues, please email Lindsey at
