How This Impacts Mobility
Many syndicates and collaborations are already underway and working through the complexities of this next challenge. While different jurisdictions will continue to offer interim solutions, a true global solution is still a little ways away.
And yet, in the unprecedented emergency that is this pandemic, digital credentialing may well benefit domestic and international travelers, and the wider economy. In this scenario, individuals will hold a dynamic digital identity solution on their mobile device enabling more seamless domestic and international border crossing, allowing physical returns to workplaces, classrooms, restaurants, and entertainment venues to name a few. While employers will need to work through key considerations, the wider recognition and usage of certificates may indeed enable increased levels of workforce mobility in this new normal.
