Transforming Technologies Of 2017 That Will Uplift Human Resources
May 11 2017 – New technologies are being developed to transform every company’s approach to Human Resources. High tech way of recruitment and employee management such as virtual job interviews and employment verification based on online employment has become the new trend of companies worldwide. This is only the beginning of the new landscape on employee firing, hiring and everything else that involves employee management. Below are some of the new technologies that will transform human resources in every way possible.
Guaranteed Dual Factor Authentication
Dual factor authentication is referred to confirmation of an individuals identity using two different methods. This is a great improvement in the security of both your company’s IT infrastructure as well as the security of your facilities which could not be done using only a username and a password. The next development in personnel identification is the key fob access which is known to change the pass code of the individual every now and then, a more secured type compared to username and password alone. However, the downside on this method is that it is prone to lock out in the event that a personnel failed to enter the correct code within the next thirty seconds.
What’s more is that, in the event a personnel lost his or her key card and access badge, someone who knows their password and username could use it. If you want a more secure authentication method, the biometric identification would be the next best technology to use. However, biometric authentication has issues related to hygiene as sweaty and irritated hands could compromise the fingerprint of an employee.
On the bright side, tech developers have already made a solution for these problems, and the good thing about it is it does not require much effort from employees. This is through facial recognition which is used by companies like Clearstar in verifying and controlling the employee access of their facilities. The software is also designed to notice the changes of a person’s facial structure in order to cope up with any changes caused by makeup, facial hair or weight changes. When the software notice major facial structure changes, Human Resource department is notified so that a new photo will be provided by the employee for the update and prevent them from being locked out. What’s more is that facial recognition can be used to replace proximity badges as they have the same principle in doing verification wherein the employee will sit in front of the camera.
Today’s new technology allows us to communicate and interact with each other face to face using video calls and other tools, and these developments might just be the next trend in employment verification. This is becoming more and more essential in employment as there are jobs that are not localized and can be done even when the employee and employer are far apart.
