Are RFID Chip Implants On The Horizon for Employees?

There has been a lot of press in the past two days about an existing technology being used in a new way at an office complex in Sweden: RFID chips implanted in tenants' hands.  The occupants of this new complex are being given the opportunity to have a tiny RFID chip implanted in their hand that will give them access to doors and photocopiers, with the promise of future services tied to the chips.  Not surprisingly, this new use of the technology has been met with mixed reactions among the tenants.

The initiative is being advanced by a Swedish biohacking group that wants to understand the technology before implanted RFID chips become as ubiquitous as wearable tech like Fitbits.  But is RFID chipping on the horizon for employees?  There have been reports of employers offering RFID chips instead of keys to employees in security-sensitive positions.
