When it comes to security and its perceived impact on productivity, there is a lot to consider. Security is often seen as a productivity delay. Workers are delayed at doorways while presenting badge credentials. Visitors are delayed in the lobby while entering information into the visitor management system. Deliveries are delayed at the entrance as the vehicle is inspected. In reality, security is there to enable a safe and productive workplace. But it doesn't have to be this way...
To accomplish this, yes, there must be electronic and physical devices in place. However before a single camera is installed or gate is mounted, the security management team must work together with executives, management, and workers to implement solutions that make sense to all stakeholders.
With input from all stakeholders, a security solution that makes sense can be implemented. And that input will lead to adoption of processes and procedures at all levels, rather than trying to find ways around them.
Maybe the answer is replacing card credentials with biometric readers. Perhaps it's replacing legacy visitor management systems with pre-registration capable systems. And, maybe, using LPR technology to automatically open perimeter gates when known vehicles approach.
