Digital Credentials Platform: A pivotal moment for HR
The Velocity Network Foundation’s Yvette Cameron and Dror Gurevich recently received an insight of the potential future of job opportunities and credentials that they were examining at and noticed significant potential consequences for education and employers. According to the data incorporated by Velocity, the pool of potential employees who are skilled for the occupations offered is diminishing, the skill gap is widening, turnover is increasing, and outsourcing is on the rise, particularly among the younger populations.
Colleges and universities will have to modify their certificate and degree criteria to this new marketplace as additional types of verification and validation of skills and understanding that are determined by the individual are developed. Individual, academic, and employer obligations will all require a common language in the marketplace.
The Velocity Network Foundation, founded by Yvette Cameron and Dror Gurevich, Co-Founder and CEO of Velocity Career Labs, plans to launch a blockchain-powered, open-source “Internet of Careers” centered on the notion of self authenticity, which gives individuals full ownership over their user data.
“Individuals who use blockchain-based self-sovereign authentication can save their data on their devices and use it for verification and transactions without depending on a centralized database,” Cameron explains.
SAP, Upwork, SHL, and a number of other companies have joined together to push this endeavor further.
