One organisation that is definitely doing people analytics is Nestlé.

Episode 4: Will Blockchain Disrupt the Future of HR Technology? (Interview with Yvette Cameron, Founder and Principal Analyst at NextGen Insights)

Recent research by Accenture, which was published at the World Economic Forum in Davos found that if companies can unlock the value of workforce data whilst maintaining high levels of employee trust, the 600 biggest publicly listed companies in the world alone could unlock a combined value of 3 trillion dollars. One of the challenges to unlocking this value is the whole subject of data privacy and ownership. This is where Blockchain potentially comes in as it could fundamentally shift the status quo on employee data being owned by companies to a future where the data is very much owned by the individual worker and shared with its organisation.
