4. Will Blockchain Disrupt the Future of HR Technology? Interview with Yvette Cameron, Founder and Principal Analyst at NextGen Insights

We're fond of hyping new technologies in HR, but I sense that the buzz around blockchain is actually being underplayed. Recent research by Accenture, which was published at the World Economic Forum in Davos found that if companies can unlock the value of workforce data whilst maintaining high levels of employee trust, the 600 biggest publicly listed companies in the world alone could unlock a combined value of 3 trillion dollars. One of the challenges to unlocking this value is the whole subject of data privacy and ownership. 

This is where Blockchain potentially comes in as it could fundamentally shift the status quo on employee data being owned by companies to a future where the data is very much owned by the individual worker and shared with its organisation. That’s the topic of this week’s podcast. 

Our guest this week is Yvette Cameron, Founder and Principal Analyst at Next-Gen Insights who is a true expert in the HR technology space having previously been Global Head of Strategy at SAP SuccessFactors and Research Director of Human Capital Management technology at Gartner. Yvette is working closely with a number of HR technology companies to think about how blockchain could be used to revolutionise the situation around data ownership. Will we see a new vendor enter the market and create this capability or will the HR tech companies themselves collaborate create something together?

It's certainly a fascinating topic.  In our podcast Yvette and I discuss: 

  • Firstly what Blockchain is and the impact it will potentially have on HR, HR technology and who owns employee data? 
  • The consequent need for HR to evolve and embrace a digital mindset
  • Some of the research that Yvette has done around the role of design thinking in creating the employee experience 
  • Some of the challenges that organisations are facing around the topic of employee experienc
  • And as always we'll talk about how the role of HR will have evolved by 2025. 

This episode is a must listen for HR leaders and professionals intrigued by blockchain and the opportunity it provides for HR as well as those involved in digital transformations and employee experience initiatives.
