How will Blockchain impact and transform HR?

Blockchain is widely associated with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies; however, Blockchain technology is set to disrupt the way human resources (HR) departments are currently functioning. Accordingly, investments in Blockchain technology are forecast to reach $11.7 billion by 2021, which is tremendous as it was only $1.5 billion in 2018.

This session is designed to introduce Blockchain, its concepts, benefits and applications with a particular interest in how the technology will impact and transform HR function in organisations. HR as a critical function becomes more complicated as organisations move towards contingent labour and operate outside traditional organisational boundaries. Blockchain technology will arguably impact the HR function more profoundly than ever imagined. Amy & Vidy will introduce Blockchain and use cases for the HR industry to showcase how HR functions will become transparent and simple.
