Blockchain technology can be used to simplify payroll by streamlining and protecting payments to workers, contractors, and suppliers.

With this system, the company can guarantee that no changes will be made to any employee’s HR correspondence and that no information will be altered. Etisalat’s HR departments are undergoing digital transformations to increase employee autonomy, improve customer service, and strengthen data security.
