Transforming Technologies Of 2017 That Will Uplift Human Resources

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. This is only the beginning of the new landscape on employee firing, hiring and everything else that involves employee management. Below are some of the new technologies that will transform human resources in every way possible.

Surefire Dual Authentication Factor

The confirmation of an individual’s identity using two different authentication method is called dual factor authentication. 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 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. 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. 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. This is through facial recognition which is used by companies like Clearstar in verifying and controlling the employee access of their facilities. 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. 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.

Virtual Interviewing

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. 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.
