The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation by the European Union (EU). It became effective on May 25th, 2018 replacing the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC. The GDPR aims to protect the privacy rights of EU citizens by imposing strict rules and regulations on how businesses and organizations handle personal data. This includes the collection, processing, storage and transfer of such data. The GDPR requires companies to obtain explicit consent from individuals before collecting and using their personal information. In addition, it grants individuals the right to access, correct and erase their data. Businesses that fail to comply with GDPR can face severe consequences. Fines amount up to 4% of their annual global revenue or €20 million, whichever is greater.

GDPR training for recruiters

GDPR training for recruiters is essential. Because recruitment involves the collection, processing and storage of personal data on a large scale. The GDPR has strict rules on how such data should be handled. Failure to comply can lead to severe consequences for both the recruiter and the candidate. By providing GDPR training, recruiters can ensure full understanding of the regulations and guidelines that govern the handling of personal data. In addition, they will be able to implement proper procedures and safeguards to protect candidates’ privacy and confidentiality. This can help to build trust with candidates, reduce the risk of data breaches and non-compliance penalties, and demonstrate a commitment to ethical and responsible business practices. In addition, it can help recruiters to stay up-to-date with changes in legislation and best practices in handling personal data. Hence, ensuring that they continue to operate in a legally compliant and efficient manner.
