The landscape for employment has changed dramatically over the last 50 years. Companies previously hired candidates based on job descriptions, hard skills and location. But the Internet has made the workplace global: companies now grapple with hiring and managing remote contractors and employees who can be distributed almost anywhere around the world. Challenges emerge from cultural differences, assessment and trust building across large distances and different time zones, and those obstacles arise even before we have to consider international payments and taxes.

She believes that blockchain tech, with its inherent transparency and reputation, has the potential to disrupt and transform this slowly changing, traditional industry.
