Ready for Total Workforce Management VMS + ATS ?


About 15 years ago, when I was still at the ATS Taleo (now part of Oracle), we came up with a vision: any workforce need should come through one platform. If it is a full-time position, the ATS will handle it, if it is a contingent worker, the VMS will instead. We subsequently bought a VMS to achieve this vision.

The result... did not work, the market was not ready.

Conceptually, it makes total sense: I need some work to be done, so how can I get there? Should I hire someone full time, a contingent worker, a contractor, external consultants, or even gig worker? Each of those approaches have benefits. I have seen some companies that have started to think that way.

Is the time now? What have you seen?
