GDPR – Adapting to data protection changes across recruitment services & HR management

Coming into force on 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulations will have a major impact on anyone involved in HR.

Recruitment agencies, headhunters and in-house HR departments will need to urgently ensure that the way they gather, store and process an individual's' data – in particular CVs – is compliant with the new regulations.

For some GDPR will require changing the way they think about data for others it may require a total re-engineering of their business strategy, indeed philosophy or even business model. To what extent can GDPR impact your business and how can you adapt accordingly?

This meeting of the BPCC's HR policy group looks at what anyone holding personal data needs to be aware of, including the risk of disgruntled employees or candidates blowing the whistle on their employer or recruitment agency.
