Similar situation here, which is why we've only got ID badges those staff who might not be universally recognised, e.g. cleaners and peripatetic music staff, and the more frequent visitors, e.g. swimming pool maintenance, speech and language therapist etc.

If you want a good, valid reason for NEEDING photo's on SIMS or any other database held by HR or similar.
One of the main reasons Students photo's are put on SIMS, is so that during a fire or similar reason for evacuating the building, if a person is missing, a Picture of the person can be given to the emergency services so they can ID who they have found.
This is just as true for Staff as it is for students.
It's also a security thing.

Whilst I can understand this, in the event of a fire would the admin stand by a printer waiting for all the photos to come through? Or is a paper record of the photo's kept for such an event? Does this also mean that all visitors are snapped as they enter the building just in case? No I thought not.

I think we may have loads of absent staff on the day the photographer is due!
Thanks for the thoughts.

Certainly with our school, and I suspect a lot of others, they keep a paper copy of them for this exact reason.
