I just returned from the 2012 Society for Human Resources Management Annual Conference and it was a huge success! It was a packed show with over 14,000 attendees and 650 exhibitors. "The exhibit hall was like the size of a small city with vendors from around the country giving away awesome gifts while pitching their products and services. It was impressive!” commented David, Identification Expert. This is the second year that IDville has particiapted in this conference and it's been a wonderful experience.
 
IDville participated as an exhibit sponsor June 24-26 in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center. We were able to speak with over 1,100 HR professionals about the importance of photo identification and security in the workplace.

As a new addition to the IDville team, it was great to meet new people and see their excitement towards implementing and/or updating their current photo identification system. It seemed as though many of the HR professionals I chatted with were either frustrated with their outdated ID system or their current system was simply too complicated. By having our ID Maker Systems on hand we were able to perform live demos to show how easy it is to design and print IDs from your desktop.  To view sample ID cards, check out our ID card library. 
 
Part of the fun was seeing the eagerness of the attendees to sign up for our raffle prizes! We raffled of 2 sets of 2 tickets to the world famous Georgia Aquarium and a $200 Visa gift card. Congratulations to Sandy from Georgia and Laura from Michigan. They were our 2 lucky winners for the aquarium tickets. Also congratulations to Rod from Nebraska who won our $200 Visa gift card. Enjoy! Be sure to “like” our Facebook Fan Page and check out photos from the conference. 
 
I look forward to attending the Society for Human Resource Management Annual Conference in 2013 in the wonderful city of Chicago and seeing some familiar faces!

The Georgia Aquarium promises wonder and excitement around every corner.

June is National Safety Month: Promote Safety with ID Maker & Quantix!

by Kayla 7. June 2012 09:35
Kayla

It’s National Safety Month! Every year during the month of June, the National Safety Council encourages organizations to get involved and participate in National Safety Month. How do you plan to participate in promoting safety this year?

Here's a little background information: National Safety Month is an annual observance to educate and influence behaviors around the leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths. At  IDville  we’re excited to participate in National Safety Month by promoting visitor management tools and ID Maker™ Systems to ensure the safety of all staff and visitors.
Learn more about National Safety Month
Tracking visitors is an important part of ensuring safety, but it can easily get overlooked if a visitor management system hasn’t been implemented. Not only does it keep buildings safe from theft and violence, it promotes a feeling of security and well-being throughout organizations.  If your organization doesn’t encounter a high volume of visitors on a daily basis, our temporary ID systems and visitor bundles include everything you need to start your visitor program.

Photo identification systems go hand-in-hand with safety when it comes to the staff that makes up your organization. The ID Maker System is a quick and simple solution to identify who has authorization to be on the premises, who is a visitor, and who is a staff member. Utilizing HID Prox cards for ID badges permits access control to each person who enters the building and promotes a higher level of security.

During National Safety Month each week is centered on a critical safety issue. This year’s issues include Employee Wellness, Ergonomics, Fall Prevention, and Driving Safety. Workplace safety is one of the most critical functions of any organization. Whether it’s ensuring the physical safety of your employees or providing a sense of security, it’s vital to ensure each and every staff member knows what is expected of them when it comes to safety.

There are various fun ways to engage your employees in National Safety Month. I suggest committing to having one meeting a week centered on the weekly topic and have a trivia game at the end. You can reward employees for participating with an extended lunch break, gift cards, coupons, etc. Or why not round up some teams to help perform A Million Acts of Safety. It’s a great way to get your employees involved and help promote workplace safety in your organization and in the community. Happy National Safety Month!
