Blockchain and Crypto Currency.  Do we really understand what these technologies are?  In this special podcast, we interview Anita Lettink, SVP, Strategy & Alliances at NGA HR to learn more about what blockchain and cryptocurrencies are, and more importantly, how these technologies will impact the future of Payroll and HR.

Anita is responsible for Strategy & Alliances globally where she is responsible for ensuring strategic value propositions are developed and brought to market for NGA HR.  Anita has written a number of excellent articles on Blockchain technology (links below in these episode notes) and it was these articles that led me to invite Anita to join us on The Payroll Podcast
