One year after first introducing microchipping to its employees, a Wisconsin company says its workers are loving it.
About 80 of the 250 employees at Three Square Market in River Falls have had a microchip the size of a large grain of rice implanted in their hands.
The article goes on to state the following:
The Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips are used to make purchases in the breakroom, sign into computers and access the building.
‘It’s just become such a part of my routine,’ Steve Kassekert, vice president of finance, told Technology Review.
Critics cite concerns including data theft, lack of privacy and risk of infection from implants.
The idea came from a trip to Sweden in 2017, McMullan said.
Nearly 3,000 of the country’s 10 million residents have opted for microchip implants, using them for such varied purposes as buying train tickets, accessing printers and vending machines, and getting into buildings, the AFP reported in May.
‘In Sweden, people are very comfortable with technology,’ Swedish microbiologist Ben Libberton said.
‘I would say there is less resistance to new technology here than in most other places.’
The US business specializing in custom break room markets first launched the RFID chip option for its employees on August 1, 2017 with about 50 employees, including company president Patrick McMullan.
‘You get used to it; it’s easy,’ McMullan said.
Over the past year, 30 more have signed on, and just two have opted to have the chips removed, McMullan said.
They did so when they left the company.
