Transforming Technologies Of 2017 That Will Uplift Human Resources
May 11 2017 – The date is set to transform Human Resource and Development completely with the new 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. The following information are the new technologies in human resource that will transform the employee management of companies in 2017.
Guaranteed Dual Factor Authentication
Dual factor authentication is referred to confirmation of an individuals identity using two different 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. This kind of security however could be a cause of setbacks in the event that the employees are unable to enter the correct pass code thirty seconds after it has been asked.
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. Although, this still has setbacks such as the compromising of an employee’s fingerprints due to sweaty, irritated or cuts on ones hand.
The good news is, a solution that does not require much hassle form employees has been made already. 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. 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.
Interviewing On A Virtual Level
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. These technologies have become an essential part of employment nowadays especially since there are jobs that can be done even with the distance between an employee and an employer.
