The underlying technology is called the “blockchain,” and this specific technology has the potential to shake up a lot of industries, including L&D and HR. However, for a lot of people, blockchain remains a mystery. What is blockchain? And how could it eventually affect learning and development?

This session will lead you on a journey of discovery, using concrete examples. The possible applications are numerous: recruitment, learning and development, payroll, etc. Blockchain can efficiently be applied to any area where HR and L&D exchange data and where identifiers and transactional processes are required.
