UK staff background checker firm ClearStar has turned to a face recognition solution to check the status of temporary workers.The company has awarded a US$500,000 contract to a US-based relocation specialist for the solution, with a mobile device to be used for remote hiring and to allow van operators to vet casual workers through facial recognition and ID validation.Robert Vale, ClearStar's chief executive, said he was delighted with the contract, especially the adoption of its new facial recognition and electronic address book technology.This “will facilitate the recruitment of a temporary workforce – and for which we expect to receive demand from other industries going forward,” he said.
