How to Educate Your Employees about Biometric Time Clocks

myths about biometric time clocksWhenever your company introduces a new technology, it is important that you educate your employees with clear information. Failing to inform employees can lead to resistance, push back and overall lower morale. And when it comes to collecting biological data, even more so. However, employers who use biometric authentication techniques are on the rise. With the many benefits of biometric time clocks, it is important to get your staff on board.

We've compiled the top 3 myths we hear from customers about biometric time clocks to help you ease any potential concerns with your employees.

Debunking the Myths about Biometric Time Clocks

Myth #1: Biometric time clocks store employee fingerprints.

Fact: Most biometric time clocks do not store actual fingerprints. Instead, they capture a mathematical representation that simply summarizes the fingerprint image. After registration, the representation file is stored, but it CANNOT be used to recreate the actual fingerprint.

Myth #2: Biometric time clocks slow the clocking in and out process.

Fact: Biometric verification takes no more time than punching in with a pin or swiping a card. After a quick registration process, clocking in or out with a fingerprint reader only takes 3-4 seconds. And there are best practices to ensure that the finger is scanned properly the first time. Having a dry, clean finger will speed up the process.

Myth #3: Biometric time clocks are for employers who don’t trust their employees.

Fact: Biometric time clocks aren’t just for preventing buddy punching—they offer many benefits to employees. They track down to the minute time and attendance data, so employees can be reassured that they are being paid all of their hours worked. Additionally, some biometric time clocks have employee portals where they can check and request PTO, watch training videos or print pay stubs.
