milch & zucker has joined the Velocity Network Foundation

As the 35th  member of the Velocity Network Foundation, milch & zucker – one of the top innovators in the German-speaking HR market – is shaping blockchain technology standards to enable individuals to securely and easily own, manage and share career credentials. 

 

 

Blockchain as an omni-functional resume. 

 

Technology is a competitive differentiator in HR. That’s what drives milch & zucker, the 150-person strong software company based in Giessen, Germany, which has been one of Germany’s HR innovators for years with innovative solutions for recruiting processes and systematic employer branding. Now, another step has been taken in the direction of technology development. By joining the global Velocity Network Foundation, a cooperative, non-profit entity, set out to put people back in control and build a globally accessible, trustworthy “Internet of Careers®”, individuals will be able to securely and easily own, manage, and share their career credentials.  

  

By using blockchain technology, individuals can transform their career data into digital credentials that are verifiable, secure, and globally usable. This career data is intended to form the basis of a secure, complete, trustworthy, immutable, and always verifiable resume for individuals and companies.  

  

 

Integration into E-Recruiting Software.  

 

The goal is to advance development in the next 9-18 months to the point where individuals can share any personal career data in an omni-functional resume with the Applicant Management System, BeeSite Recruiting Edition, using the “Velocity Wallet”– so that candidates can apply directly in the system using these verifiable credentials which are powered by blockchain technology.   

  

“Blockchain technology will help us decentralize and securely store data to ensure candidates’ informational self-determination. The Velocity Network is making an important contribution to this. We are proud to be a part of this network and would like to contribute by joining and participating.” says Ingolf Teetz, CEO of milch & zucker.
