May 11 2017 – The approach on Human Resources is to be transformed with the newly developed technologies. The world of online employment has become the new trend in human resources giving birth to online employment verification and virtual job interviews. 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.
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 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. 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.
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. 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. Employee verification and access controls are now being done by companies like Clearstar through the use of facial recognition software. The software is also intelligently designed to notice any facial structure changes that might be caused by weight changes, make up 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. 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.
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.
