In 2020, the World Employment Confederation expects further breakthroughs in how technology will enhance the worker’s journey. Feeding off the unique insights and data sets of its Corporate Members, efforts will be geared towards recommending a common set of worker data that can reside on a block, guidelines/best practices, and use cases for which we – and the candidates and workers -, and others across industry, can utilize this data block to make it easier for people to enter and re-enter the workforce.
The World Employment Confederation and its Corporate Members are ready to work with all stakeholders active in the field of blockchain technology and its applications in employment services in order to create a positive and trusted experience for candidates, workers and employers.
