It is hard to walk into any office today and find employees who don’t wear employee IDs. A company’s security plans will not be fully successful if the company will not find a way to identify their people at all times whether they are working from an office or are field executives.
The following are tips that can help a company create perfect employee IDs that enable them to implement their security programs.
Having a company’s logo on one or both faces of the ID card is one way to help identify the company more easily especially when the workers are out there. Ensure that the logo is done in a way that brings out a company’s brand message. The reason you want to make sure that your cards are unique and hard to duplicate is that fraudulently generated cards could be used by others to do things at the market place that can seriously dent your company’s reputation.
You also want to produce an employee identification card that looks aesthetically beautiful as well as functional. Design the card in such a way that it satisfies your security and branding requirements. You can come out with a color system that helps to identify specifics such as departments and floors.
Cards can be one sided or double-sided depending on the security features that need to be included. The beauty about a dual-sided card is that you can pack a lot of useful information on it without having to compromise on the design.
Make sure that all the IDs bear a clear employee photo that helps to positively identify the person who carries it. The security people should keenly examine the cards to ascertain that they belong to the person who presents them at the point of entry into the building.
For cards that are more security biased in design,some technology such as smart chips or barcodes can be used to have personal details of the card’s carrier encoded. The details can then be synchronized with building access programs so that a card reader can be used to either approve or deny access to certain places,helping you reduce the number of human personnel needed. This can save money for the company as fewer security personnel will be needed.
You don’t want to keep printing these ID cards every now and then,which is why you need to have them made using durable material such as PVC.
These are not the only components of a perfect worker identification card but they are some of the most important.
