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. 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.
Dual Factor Authentication That is Foolproof
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 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.
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. For those who wants to avoid these setbacks, you can choose biometric identification as the next authentication method 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. 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. 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. 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. 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 new technological trend has become a necessity in Human Resource nowadays most especially since there are jobs that could be performed despite the distance between the locations of the employee and the employer.
