New Tech Development In Human Resources For A Better Employee Management
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. 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. Below are the expected human resource technologies that is expected to transform employee management of companies in 2017.
Surefire Dual Authentication Factor
The confirmation of an individual’s identity using two different authentication method is called dual factor authentication. 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. Although, this kind of verification is somewhat troublesome, for the reason that it could lock employees out when if they do not enter the correct pass code in the span of thirty seconds.
In addition, key cards and access badges could be lost and someone who knows the password and username could use it for their own selfish agenda. For those who wants to avoid these setbacks, you can choose biometric identification as the next authentication method to use. Although, this still has setbacks such as the compromising of an employee’s fingerprints due to sweaty, irritated or cuts on ones hand.
Surprisingly, new tech solutions have already been developed to address the problem, and the good thing about this solution is that it requires less effort from employees. Employee verification and access controls are now being done by companies like Clearstar through the use of facial recognition software. With the intelligent design of the facial recognition software, it is able to notice any structural changes in an employees face that might be caused by several factors including makeup, weight changes and facial hair. Any changes detected by the software is escalated to the Human resource department for the employee to get a new photo ready for the device so as to prevent facility lockout. 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.
When it comes to employment verification, the use of videos and other technologies to help individuals from two distant places interact could be the next trend in Human Resource technologies. 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.
