Blacklisting & Persona Non Grata
When do your employees, vendors, or other individuals external to your organization turn persona-non-grata ( Latin for an “unwelcome person” ) for you? Do you have a mechanism to blacklist these people and keep them out of your premises? Is there an early warning system that tells you when such people try to enter your premises? You better have it!
Organizations typically blacklist people for a variety of reasons. Dishonesty at work is one such reason. Another reason is not showing an ethical or professional attitude towards work and fellow workers within the premises. Companies often find it uncomfortable to deal with people who bad mouth the organization by using unsuitable expressions about the company or the people working there on public or social media profiles. Then there are outright unpardonable situations where a person has misbehaved with someone in the company premise or demonstrated affiliations or biases that work contrary to those of the organization. All these reasons can lead a person to be blacklisted. That means the person will not be allowed to visit the premises. As soon as the blacklisted person tries to visit the premises and shows his face to the 1UP Attendance Management System (1UPAMS) or 1UP Visitor Management System (1UPVMS), there will be a prompt generated “Person not authorized to enter! Please contact admin.” Any security guard officer who is managing the physical IN and OUT at the premises can easily guide the blacklisted person outside the premises. The admin officer who handles the whole process can check the dashboard that if any blacklisted employee has tried to visit the premises, that officer will get a notification on his mobile number and email for the same.
Blacklisting allows you to make your premise more secure by not allowing unwanted or undesirable people from entering your premises, which in turn can raise conflicts. It is better to know beforehand who is entering your premises than to go the traditional way to match each visitors’ record in physical logbooks to know that there isn’t any trespassing by these unwanted individuals.
