We are already living in a digital era but soon a wave of technological disruptions will change the current HR scenario.

How can we define Blockchain? 
Blockchain can be seen as a secure and transparent transaction balance sheet where transactions are both recorded as well as they are confirmed. All participating parties can have access to this continuously growing database to address their needs for information within the distributed network. Apart from that, they can also share the same within the network. Users have a definite option to contribute to forming the database by adding few new transactions in the balance sheet. And, the most important thing is that each of the transactions gets recorded and stored within the network without any option to alter it i.e. nobody is able to edit or delete the data shared by the user in any circumstances which make all the data safe and secure. This marks the safe and secure as well as trustworthy option to store the data in this tech world.

Blockchain has been always considered as a game changer. Let’s know what all can happen and how does it affects Human resource industry at present and in coming future:
