Transforming Technologies Of 2017 That Will Uplift Human Resources
May 11 2017 – The date is set to transform Human Resource and Development completely with the new technologies. 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. More likely, this new development is only the start of the new panorama in employee management from hiring to firing. Below are some of the new technologies that will transform human resources in every way possible.
Surefire Dual Authentication Factor
The confirmation of an individual’s identity using two different authentication method is called dual factor authentication. This greatly improves the IT infrastructure and the security of your facilities that could not be done using a simple password and username verification. The second identification method that is more secured compared to simple username and password is the key fob identification which has the capability to change pass codes in a set time interval. This kind of security however could be a cause of setbacks in the event that the employees are unable to enter the correct pass code thirty seconds after it has been asked.
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 are looking to avoid these kinds of situations, you can opt for biometrics identification as your second type if employee authentication. Although, this still has setbacks such as the compromising of an employee’s fingerprints due to sweaty, irritated or cuts on ones hand.
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 intelligently designed to notice any facial structure changes that might be caused by weight changes, make up and facial hair. 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. The fact that proximity badges requires a personnel to sit in front of the camera for authentication just like facial recognition, it can be conveniently replaced with facial recognition.
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.
