There are many different flavors related to the term "software as a service" (SaaS) in business today. It's part of the cloud computing nomenclature -- "clouding" this and "clouding" that making everything more accessible with reduced long-term hardware, software and networking costs.

So what about Talent as a Service (TaaS) or Humans as a Service (HuaaS)? How exactly would that work? Got you thinking, didn't it.

According to one of this week's guests, Richie Etwaru, "a more humanistic, people-centric view of the 'as a Service' phenomena extends Everything as a Service to 'Everyone as a Service.'"

What we're really talking about is on-demand talent in the cloud, the ability for anyone or any company to source individual talent and groups of talent for anything, at any time, for any kind of work and frequency, in any interation and/or for any ideation.

On some levels this already happens with sourcing contingent workers globally via freelance sites and other services. But can that ever scale effectively and efficiently for the enterprise as well as smaller companies and consultancies?

That's what we're going to talk about this week on this week on #TChat Radio and Twitter #TChat with our guests Jason Averbook, long-time HR thought leader and Chief Business Innovation Officer at Appirio, and Richie Etwaru, Group Vice President of Cloud and Digital Innovation at Cegedim Relationship Management.

We hope to see you here!
