The greatest fear of any industry is a data breach. As we have been observing, Blockchain is disrupting the banking and finance world for quite some time. It has now turned its sights to the HR sector. Blockchain, with its decentralized system, can impact this niche in many ways.
Human resources is in charge of dealing with all issues related to the people within the organization. This niche gives shape to notions like motivation, organizational behaviour, and selection assessments. The tasks of human resources include recruiting and hiring employees, payrolls, appraisals, and dealing with an organization’s culture.
Blockchain contains the capability to transform the various HR processes, especially when it comes to recruiting and hiring candidates and talent acquisition.
So, let’s examine the ways Blockchain is ready to reinvent the Human Resources:

The biggest worry for the HR departments is storing and securing information relating to pay, health insurance, finance and banking, disciplinary records, and more.
