We discussed the importance of GDPR in recruitment and how to stay compliant with GDPReu.org.
What is GDPR?
The GDPR is a wide-ranging and complex data privacy law affecting every organisation that deals with data belonging to individuals who live in EU member states.
GDPR has a huge influence over how businesses both handle and process the data of other individuals and companies. They came into force in May 2018 when the drawn-out plans for data protection measures were finally put into place.
What advice did Yoono provide on being GDPR compliant in recruitment to GDPReu.org?
“Previously, the data of candidates was used without the candidates having knowledge of as much, this has now changed, and recruiters need to ensure that they have a candidate’s permission to store information.
A lot of recruiters outsource their services now and use AI as a means of recruitment and running background checks so if this is the case, they will need to ensure those organisations also operate in a way which is GDPR compliant.”
