The concept of decentralized cryptocurrency without political borders can be challenging at first. However, cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin and Litecoin, force us to adjust the way we think about money and how to transfer value. Could digital currency be the future of how employers pay their workforces?
Attracting and retaining top talent is necessary to build effective teams that are strong, motivated, and a great cultural fit for the company. Employees want to be rewarded for their work, and employers have started to look beyond traditional hiring bonuses and benefits as a means of making sure employees feel valued, according to one workplace authority.
“I do think companies are aware that the best workers are more in the driver’s seat,” said John Challenger, chief executive of Challenger, Gray & Christmas, an executive outplacement firm. “Companies know that if they lose someone they value, it’s harder to go out and replace skilled workers in a low-unemployment environment.”
"And keeping pay and bonus percentages constant has been made possible only through cost-saving layoffs. U.S.-based energy firms announced 60,500 job cuts in the first six months of 2015, compared with fewer than 4,000 in the same period last year, according to job placement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas."
