New Tech Development In Human Resources For A Better Employee Management
May 11 2017 – The approach on Human Resources is to be transformed with the newly developed 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. And this is only the beginning of what’s to come, as day after day new technologies on human resources are being developed at a rapid pace. The following information are the new technologies in human resource that will transform the employee management of companies in 2017.
Dual Factor Authentication That is Foolproof
When we say dual factor authentication, it is the way to confirm a person’s identity using two varying methods. With this, the security of your IT infrastructure and company facilities is heightened in a way that could not be done using username and password alone. The next type of identification that goes beyond just username and password is the key fob identification which automatically changes the pass codes of every employee once in a while. 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.
Aside from that, there is a possibility that someone else could use the key cards and access badges if employees lose them, given that the person who found it knows the right password and username. If you want a more secure authentication method, the biometric identification would be the next best technology to use. This however still has setbacks which could compromise the fingerprints of a personnel in cases like irritated and sweaty hands as well as cuts.
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. Companies such as Clearstar are now using the facial recognition software in dealing with the verification of their employees, and to control the access to 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. Whatever noticeable changes the software detects will be escalated to Human Resource department which in turn will ask for a new photo as basis for facial recognition, preventing any facility lockout occurrences. 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.
