9:30 - 10:30 Total Talent Management: Unlocking Value Across the Workforce Ecosystem

John Healy, Chief Executive @ Whrrr.work

While many organizations have taken steps towards total talent management, too often there is a sense that there is more that can be done.  Each actor within the ecosystem seeks growth and expanded opportunities, but too often increased value for one party means decreased value for another.  

With the immense opportunities available through the advent of new technologies, alternative business models, and rapidly evolving consumer based expectations the entire ecosystem is poised to unlock both increased productivity and new forms of value.

Enterprise leaders responsible for workforce solutions along with the workforce technology and service providers that make up the broader ecosystem will come together to challenge the value of existing operating models supporting “total talent” to determine what points of friction can be overcome through collaboration and exponential thinking.

Walk aways…
One of the hallmarks of ClubVMSA events is engaging participants rather than listening to lectures.

In this workshop, we will use design thinking principles to experience the exponential impact that can be made when a broad set of members of an ecosystem come together to solve problems.  We will leverage the unique perspectives and collective knowledge of the Club VMSA attendees to better understand each other’s perspectives by dissecting four specific elements of many total talent programs – the MSP, Direct Sourcing, Gig/IC engagement, and the technology stack.

We will step away from our individual needs to address the collective opportunity, identifying the value intended with each program element (and for each stakeholder), the points of friction that dilute the intended value, and the innovation opportunities available.

The learnings will offer a roadmap for those responsible for workforce strategy, program deployment, and product development!

The Communications Decency Act or “CDA”, 47 U.S.C. § 230(c)(1), states, “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.” Because the information supplied to this list is authored by users of VMS Accelerator’s, Inc. site, we cannot be legally regarded as the “publisher or speaker” of that information. The same law applies to sites like Facebook or GlassDoor – users who post information on these sites are responsible for what they write, but the operators of the sites are not. This is also consistent with our website Terms of Use.

The reasons for this law are to protect free speech and to encourage the availability of information on the Internet. See generally Batzel v. Smith, 333 F.3d 1018, 1027-28 (9th Cir. 2003) (recognizing, “Making interactive computer services and their users liable for the speech of third parties would severely restrict the information available on the Internet.”). See also Caraccioli v. Facebook, Inc., 167 F. Supp.3d 1056, 1065 (N.D. Cal. 2016) (purpose of CDA immunity is “to spare interactive computer service providers the ‘grim choice’ of becoming fully responsible for third-party content” by permitting them some ability to edit third-party content without also becoming liable for all defamatory or otherwise unlawful messages that they do not edit or delete.) We cannot possibly monitor the accuracy of the huge volume of information we are receiving for this list. If interactive websites were liable for information that the site did not create, this would restrict free speech, as fewer and fewer sites would be willing to permit users to post anything at all.
