    Biometrics in the Workplace
  • What are Biometrics?
    Technology that recognizes a specific feature on an individual to confirm the person’s identity
    For example, retina, fingerprint or hand geometry
    Variety of uses
    Seen in media and movies

  • History of Biometrics
    Biometrics is essentially using something unique about someone to identify them
    Simplest form is recognizing someone’s face or a person’s signature
    Dates back to Babylonian times – business transactions were confirmed by placing your fingerprint into clay
    Very old caves have paintings on the walls that are signed with the artists’ handprints

  • History of Biometrics
    Expanded to be used by security and police officers, with the Bertillon system
    Measuring body dimensions very carefully
    The use of fingerprints for identification started becoming more common
    True biometrics didn’t emerge until automated systems were developed, near the end of the 20th century

  • Biometrics Today
    Technology has greatly advanced
    Simply fingerprint identification has branched out to:
    Face recognition
    Hand/palm geometry reading
    Voice recognition
    Retina scanning
    5
  • Uses of Biometrics
    Recognition of government officials
    Identifying individuals to pass through airport customs and security quicker
    Unlocking laptops, as an alternative for a password
    Opening doors through voice recognition

  • Time & Attendance: Biometrics in the Workplace
    Companies have started to implement biometric time clocks to identify employees and track working hours
    Using biometrics in time & attendance:
    Reduces payroll costs by 2-5%
    Reduces administrative errors and time spent calculating employee hours
    Eliminates the risk of “buddy punching”
    Hourly workers punching the time clock on behalf of fellow employees who are leaving early, arriving late, absent from work or not scheduled for work that day (results in employees being paid for time that they did not work)

  • Automation of time and attendance is a significant investment for companies, but when planned well can provide a strong ROI
