As a business we’re quite fortunate to have set up when quite a lot of information was already available on the requirements and impacts of the GDPR. This meant that from the outset we were educating ourselves and were mindful of obtaining consent for data processing, and ensuring our (then relatively small amount of) data was ‘clean’. Nonetheless, it’s been a lot to learn and implement over the last few months!
But, now the flurry of GDPR emails requesting consent to process our data from businesses far and wide have been dealt with (or not!), we have no doubt that this will be a positive step for individuals and for the recruitment industry – ensuring that people’s personal information is handled responsibly and securely.
