CakeHR’s HR Experts for Q3 2018

We are back to reveal our A-Z HR Experts for the third quarter and if you’re interested in Blockchain, AI or other emerging trends and technologies, we suggest you pay close attention to this one.

That time already? I hear you say…  We can’t quite believe it either!

If you have been following our previous A-Z HR Experts lists, you will remember in Q1 we looked closely at the HR experts developing the employee experience and culture.

Then in Q2, we continued to see a focus on the talent experience, but also highlighted HR leaders that are knowledgeable in emerging technologies such as Blockchain and AI – a prominent topic in business right now.

As Blockchain and AI continues to make even today’s top headlines, we decided to include within our A-Z list, a couple of the most influential HR professionals in this field, alongside other HR gurus that are driving product innovation, guiding agile business development models, promoting gender equality in the workplace and championing better places to work.

“Of all the emerging technologies, Blockchain is potentially the most impactful on the way we will work in the future.” – Andrew Spence, Strategic Workforce Advisor & HR Transformation Director at Glass Bead Consulting

Innovation and digitalisation of the HR function continues to be a priority, which Blockchain is currently a big part of.  Blockchain technology is a highly anticipated transformational tool which will impact every industry out there on some level, even as far as higher education with the world’s first Blockchain University set to begin teaching in 2019.


The digital age presents new challenges to HR and business, so if you want to embrace new approaches to transform your organisation, you can easily follow our HR Gurus on social media (we have included links), download their research papers, or even catch them talking at one of the many HR and Blockchain events across the globe.

So without further ado, here are our top 26 HR Gurus for Q3 2018…

A final note from one of our HR Guru’s, Andrew Spence:

“As we build the next generation of technology, Blockchain will help bring HR into the digital age. The starting point will be verified and candidate owned CVs, decentralised digital work platforms and new ways to pay workers. This will change the way we work and enable new business models and organisations structures.”
