Blockchain: Are You Ready for the Future of Staffing Technology?

Jason Leverant, CSP, TSC, CSC, CHP, president and chief operating officer, AtWork Group
Blockchain technology is reported to be a potential disruptor to the staffing industry, but most people don’t understand what it truly is. Staffing industry leader Jason Leverant will provide a simplified explanation of how blockchain technology works, how it relates to cryptocurrency, and the potential implications for the staffing industry. Participants will learn about the arrival of a faster, more efficient way to verify the credentials of job candidates, a system that could save precious time and dollars in confirming the education, certifications, work experience, or skills of applicants—particularly those in the gig economy. Attend this session for a future-forward discussion on a potential game changing technology that everyone should understand.
