Human Resources has access to a lot of data. Using blockchain technology and techniques can help with data management and other human resource functions.
If there was any skepticism that we are in the clutches of a full-on labor shortage in the United States, the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics data confirmed that fewer than 7 million unemployed workers were available to fill 11 million jobs posted in December of last year, equaling 1.7 openings for every available worker. Other highlights included multiple months of increasing voluntary job quits, the lowest level of seasonal worker layoffs on record and a 4.5% increase in wages and salaries over the last three months of the year. And this isn’t just a U.S.-based issue: Sapient Insights’ 2021-2022 Annual HR Systems Survey of over 2,000 organizations found that the ability to attract top talent was 10% lower than last year for EMEA and Asia-Pacific headquartered organizations—pointing to a global talent shortage. With the current labor environment, organizations must work to address the ever-ethereal topic of workforce planning.
