Introduction

The University of California is a world-class university that is at the forefront of
providing courses that impart students with skills relevant to the modern world. Such a course is
Human Resource and Blockchain which I am undertaking this semester. Blockchain is a new
technology but it has already established roots in the finance sector and its applicability in the
human resource section is still in its early stages (Ferguson, 2018). The theories, concepts, and
skill the course is imparting are evident in the retail industry where I work as well as other areas
as discussed in the paper below.
Blockchain is predicted to the technology that will push the human resource management
to the next level (Ferguson, 2018). Blockchain has the potential to drastically change how human
resource managers use various human resource processes and the handling of sensitive employee
data. Blockchain is quickly becoming accessible and mainstream. Although this is evident are a
few areas of business a few the technologies will soon be applied in most areas of the human
resource department. Blockchain will be used by all members of the human resource department
from the senior leaders to job recruiters who will use it for various reasons. These will include
background checks for candidates, verification of an employee working history, use of smart
contracts when dealing with contract workers, maintenance of employee data, and verification of
an employee work history (Wachter, Mittelstadt & Russell, 2017)..
As was elaborated in the class, blockchain technology was written in a superb code that
enables the handling and managing of payrolls and transactions in businesses. Blockchain
currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are good examples of how the technology can easily and
efficiently be used to undertake cross border transactions. This feature of blockchain is

applicable in many areas especially in this era where the internet of things has become a daily
norm. Besides, blockchain is not limited by distances or governments (Ferguson, 2018).
During my time in the retail industry, I have witnessed several implementations of
blockchain technology. A key part of retail is supply chain management. Blockchain has
introduced the eCommerce aspect. With eCommerce, blockchain streamlines things like product
packing and record keeping. Due to its decentralized nature, blockchain creates more trust in the
chain as compared to a central system. This is done by tracking every step of the supply chain.
This helps in reducing the risks associated with counterfeit and authenticity. This is very
applicable to the supply of things like arts, pharmaceutical products, luxury items, and antiques
(Wachter et al., 2017).
Conclusion
In conclusion, it is true to state that blockchain is a technology that is growing popular
day by day. The course concepts and theories are very relevant and applicable to the employment
sector. The application of the transformative nature of Blockchain in human resources is used in
both large and small businesses. The adoption is headed by businesses attempting to create a
competitive advantage in the market. The most notable application is evidenced in the process of
employee recruitment and selection, cross border transactions, smart contract and supply chain
management (Tapscott & Tapscott, 2017).
