Changes are necessary, that’s a way one can be prepared for what’s to come in future. Of all the drastic and
major changes, this paper shall however focus on the shift of Human Resource Management; the core of any
organization that targets to achieve their premeditated outcomes through planning strategically. To stay
abreast of the demands and rigor within the profession, Human Resource Management must always adapt
and respond to changes thereby altering their own competencies and knowledge (Peacock, 2017). Between
familiarizing new technology in different range of any given organization and managing their resources,
Human Resource has somehow missed out on some of the major disadvantages that came along. This
research paper thus shall introduce a very innovative and new technology; Blockchain to fill up gap that the
existing technology has created and strategically overcome the loss in future. Presenting in detail about any
technology on papers is easier, but how far would organizations understand the necessity of this implementation
and even if they are willing to take the risk was calculated through conducting this quantitative research.
A very detailed literature review has been done in this research paper to point out the gap created and how it
could be mend. Finally, it was concluded that the surveyed population which represented the Human
Resource, settled introducing this technology would be a strategic move.
