Walgros is one of the first tech companies to commit to using blockchain technology for employee recruitment.
The company, which is headquartered in New York City, is in the early stages of exploring the use of blockchain technology in its employee recruitment efforts.
Walgrees CEO and co-founder, Dan Hochberg, recently spoke with iO Media about his company’s efforts in the field.
“There’s a lot of buzz around blockchain, and a lot that we’re trying to do with the blockchain,” Hochberger said.
“There’s also a lot about how it works.
We are trying to find out what’s the best use case for that technology and what’s really compelling.”
Hochberger, who joined the company in March, said the company is exploring a number of different types of blockchain applications, from blockchain-based recruitment to blockchain-powered healthcare.
“We’re really focused on the idea that you can create a platform for any kind of human resource information that you need,” he said.
Hochberg explained how blockchain technology can be used to create a hiring platform for an organization.
The technology can create an employee, and then a person can be added to that person’s database through a blockchain.
In this way, the person could be linked to other people, who are connected to the person, and they could all get paid for the work they’re doing.
The idea is to make the process so frictionless, so that people can do their jobs on a level playing field, and the company says that could potentially include employees who are new to the company.
“You’re going to need some time to get used to this,” Hockberger said, explaining how it can take several weeks to get a person hired.
“But when they’re hired, they can be a part of your team for a long time.”
The company has already seen positive results with its blockchain-enabled employee hiring program, and it expects to see similar results in the future.
“Our hiring process is actually better now because we can now see who is going to be hiring and who is not,” Hoeberb said.
The app allows employees to create profiles on its platform, and an individual can then be added as an employee.
Once a person is added, they will receive an email with their application number, and when they sign up, they are automatically entered into the database.
This creates a real-time connection with the person that makes the hiring process seamless, and makes it easier for the employee to get hired.
The company is also experimenting with other ways it can connect with potential employees, including by sending a short message to the app that says, “Hey, I’m a potential employee, would you like to get my resume in the app?”
Hochenberg said this will help people connect with other potential employees.
“What we’re seeing from the data that we have now is that people who get on the app are going to see that they are already on the application,” Hogerb said, noting that it is more than a “one-click” process.
“They’re going, ‘Hey, look at my resume, I can’t wait to get an interview with Walgree.'”
According to Hochberb, the company has seen the results in its user base since its launch.
Hochborb believes that its use of the blockchain will help increase its ability to connect with employees, as it can be applied to a variety of different industries, from retail to manufacturing.
Hocherb also explained that the company will be launching more employee-focused projects soon.
“It’s just one of those things that’s a natural evolution of our product,” he explained.
