Briefly anout GDPR - What is is and why it is important for your HR flow?

The new GDPR, effective from May 25th 2018, is designed to protect individuals from infringement of privacy rights and misuse of personal data. This is no less important when handling HR flows – just think about the amount of personal data you process for talent acquisition and talent management. Do not take any chances – a breach in a single step of the process could result in significant financial penalties to your company and reduce the overall brand value. Let Master International help you to safely handle the HR flow of personal data in compliance with the GDPR – use the Master METIS HR platform.  

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It is a harmonized regulation to strengthen and unify data protection within the EU, including possible export of data outside the EU. It is applicable to all kinds of businesses that handle personal data, and it is designed to protect the registered person’s power over their own data – thereby protecting personal information. The GDPR requires that companies keeping personal data should actively take responsibility for how the data are handled.
