Data privacy touches all aspects of a business, perhaps none more so than HR and employee management where those responsible will necessarily be handling and managing significant amounts of personal, and sometimes fairly sensitive data.
It is increasingly important for HR, Human Capital and Talent teams to have a good understanding of privacy matters and how these impact their day-to-day activities, as well as anticipating the implications of developments within the business.
As those working in this field will know, many aspects of data privacy are relevant to their daily functions, including conducting pre-employment screening, using HR management systems and storing personnel files, advising on employee management processes and responding to subject access requests amongst other common activities. To put it simply, getting it wrong can have significant consequences.
To help you navigate this issues, we have created the HR Data Essentials site. This site brings together key resources for HR teams in tackling key data-related issues, from country-specific analysis and comparison tools, to cross-border and regional focus pieces, to help you understand HR data from every angle.
We hope you find this new site helpful, and if you would like to know more about our services, please get in touch with us.
