In this episode of The Nurture Podcast, Scot is joined again by William Tincup as they discuss how to win at data migration.
One year on from the GDPR, we’re still hearing from people who think they need to delete their existing database to be compliant. This isn’t the case – even if you have not tracked their permissions – but if you haven’t started to fix it, then START NOW. Do not wait a day longer.
In this TalentPipeShow Billy McDiarmid was joined by Iker Jusué, Sourcing Innovation Lead at Solutions Driven and Bill Boorman, founder #tru Conferences, speaker, blogger and advisor for an in-depth discussion on GDPR.
Keeping candidate databases up-to-date is an ongoing issue for the recruitment industry. A lack of data cleanliness in the past means that recruiters are often left using outdated records. This already serious issue will be compounded with the implementation of new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) across EU member states.
To be successful, recruitment teams will always have to collect and analyse personal data. GDPR establishes the need for personal data held to be kept accurate, not held longer than necessary, and to be transparent in communications with the individual about what data is held and why. This has required a significant culture shift, as recruiters previously held data on individuals without the individual’s knowledge, and for long periods of time.
