New Tech Development In Human Resources For A Better Employee Management
May 11 2017 – New technologies are being developed to transform every company’s approach to Human Resources. The new trend in online human resource gives rise to online employment verification and virtual job interviews and has become the new norm on human resources. 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 some of the new technologies that will transform human resources in every way possible.
Surefire Dual Authentication Factor
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. 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. 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.
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. In addition, proximity badges can be replaced by facial recognition since they have the same verification procedure wherein the user must sit in front of the camera.
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.
