Staffing Company Kelly Services To Deploy Moonlighting’s Blockchain Powered Hiring Platform
Kelly Services, an international provider of staffs for enterprises, has entered into a partnership with Moonlighting, an online blockchain-powered hiring platform. Kelly Services will install Moonlighting’s blockchain based platform in an attempt to simplify internal procedures such as safe storage of job seeker’s curriculum vitae and sharing with other platforms.
Moonlighting’s platform was created using EOSIO’s blockchain and does not utilize any native cryptocurrency.
Jeff Tennery, CEO and founder of Moonlighting, stated that the greatest issue with gig economy is its fragmented nature, necessitating job seekers to log into multiple websites in search of offers.
Tennery further elaborated as follows:
“Kelly and Moonlighting are really collaborating to fix that problem so that people could be more efficient in the way they share their data so they can get hired. Blockchain just fits that very nicely, and then the control is really in the hands of the user.”
John Healy, vice president and managing director at the Office of the Future of Work in Kelly Services, pointed out that partnership between the firms could generate “some pretty significant market opportunities.”
“We’re going to learn. We’ve got three of our business units today that are actively exploring how to leverage both the technology that Moonlighting has, as well as the business process that we’re delivering for our customers and for our workers to figure out where that best fit is.”
According to a study conducted by Big Four audit firm KPMG, 48% of C-level executives trust that blockchain will change the way they carry out business in the next three years. 27% of executives stated that the internet of things will lead blockchain adoption over the next three years.
When queried about the chances of deploying blockchain in their enterprises, 41% of respondents stated they would possibly use the technology, 31% did not provide a direct reply, while 28% stated they will not likely implement blockchain.
In June, Booz Allen Hamilton, a research firm Data Foundation and IT firm, unveiled a report that examines the viability of blockchain deployment by the US federal government.
