Find the right balance between the business and legal advantages of using biometrics in the workplace with employee privacy and human rights concerns
Biometrics — the process of turning personal biological characteristics into quantifiable data — is no longer merely the stuff of science fiction novels and movies. Throughout the past decade, biometrics has transitioned from its Hollywood origins into everyday life. Today, fingerprint readers, voice identification software, and facial recognition devices feature in a growing number of workplaces. Employers in a variety of sectors now use biometrics to enhance workplace security and manage employee performance and attendance.
