What is the HR Business Problem Blockchain Solves?

2020 will see HR technology called upon to solve the computing problems associated with the emergence of employee data ownership, data portability and data access consent capability to comply with GDPR and similar privacy legislation emerging in Australia and around the world. Recently introduced Consumer Data Right (CDR) legislation is just a taste of what is to come.

Blockchain is the only technology that will scale to the challenge and deliver a solution. Other HR problems blockchain addresses include verification of qualifications and experience. This session will describe the blockchain technology to the point attendees will see the relationship between the technology and the change to current HR business practices (including recruitment, education qualification verification and background checks), as well as superannuation and payroll.

We are already seeing software companies like Workday, SAP, Microsoft and Oracle adding niche blockchain functions such as credentialing to their product range. Not all will be successful because of design and supporting network issues and the rush to market will have some costly casualties. There are also blockchain payroll products facing similar challenges.

This event is suitable for:

Those practitioners of mid-career level, specifically in the roles of:

  • Organisational Development
  • Remuneration and Benefits
  • Learning & Development
  • HR Business partner/s
  • Workforce planning
  • HR Systems
  • Recruitment
