“We identified 68 areas we would like to improve in our legacy applicant tracking system. We selected Oracle Taleo because it enabled us address all 68 of those concerns, while also centralizing our recruitment model and providing our subsidiaries with the ability to customize activities to their individual bank. Further, Oracle Taleo is the premier, holistic, talent-management solution, and we trust that Oracle’s commitment to research and development will ensure the system can support our long-term needs,” said Deborah Battista, senior vice president, human resources, Zions Bancorporation.
Due to its strong partnership with Oracle, Zions Bancorporation is planning to expand the technology platform in the future to include performance management and succession planning technologies.
“We successfully completed the implementation with Oracle Taleo in about six months, including getting our staff trained and comfortable with the new technology. We also leveraged the expertise of an Oracle representative to support us throughout the implementation and training process to help troubleshoot any issues that might arise and ensure the implementation met our specific needs,” said Deborah Battista, senior vice president, human resources, Zions Bancorporation.
