Workplace Anxiety

Interested in purchasing and installing an RFID kit, and using it for work, but I have no idea how to ask IT about it. Seems simple, I just can’t find the words to follow through. A simple template for the request should be sufficient. Any further advice will be greatly appreciated, and I’m open to questions.

I’m sure it depends on the type of workplace and the security protocols, but in my opinion it would be better to actually talk to them face to face instead of asking over an email or phone call. Just explain to them it’s like any other work badge but in your hand. They might have heard of RFID implants if they work in IT and if you’re a long-time trusted employee they might help you out. The answer pretty much all depends on your workplace and who you know though.
Experience: In school for cybersecurity/sysadmin.

Basically the right answer. It all depends on how well you know them, who you are, and how well you explain it. There’s even a slim chance one of them has one as well. If someone asked me to add their hand I would laugh and do it with nearly no question. But I also have 2 implants so I’m a bit of a biased source. If your IT guy isn’t the jaded stereotype IT guy then chances are they’ll kind of like it.
