Press Release updated: Sep 26, 2017 08:00 EDT

On August 1st of this year, Three Square Market became the first company in the United States, and one of the first in the world, to offer microchip implants to its employees. The devices, about the size of a grain of rice, allow employees to clock in, open facility doors, make cafeteria purchases and more — all with just a swipe of the hand.

On December 10th in Dallas, Three Square Market President Patrick McMullan will lead a session at the 2017 Human Resources Technology Exchange where he will explore the benefits and challenges of using the microchip for identification, payment, and office access. He is a firm believer that the microchip technology carries the potential to be used as a passport, a transit pass, and an ultra-secure way to pay for purchases. Practicing what he preaches, he was implanted with a microchip alongside other Three Square Market employees in August. 

While news headlines at the time focused on the sci-fi shock of the innovation, the company’s decision came about because of a growing trend towards wearable technology in the workplace, with 75 million devices predicted to be voluntarily in use by 2020.

In his upcoming session at the 2017 Human Resources Technology Exchange, “Workplace Wearables & Microchipping — What’s In It for Employees & Employers,” McMullan will speak on how the microchip technology has impacted the employee experience and workplace productivity at Three Market Square, as well as address concerns about privacy, GPS tracking, and worker satisfaction.

The 2017 Human Resources Technology Exchange is an invitation-only event where top human resources executives are coming together to learn how some of the world’s largest companies are leveraging technology to streamline recruitment, increase employee satisfaction and improve productivity. Event presentations and expert panel discussions will be driven by real-life case studies, research, market intelligence and feedback from industry leaders and influencers. The event will take place in Dallas, Texas, Dec. 10-12. For More information visit:
