Jan-Erik Lagerström, CEO of InHunt World - Global Headhunting Network, attended the World Executive Search Congress last month and was kind enough to share his 5 takeaways from the event, which included:
- Meaningful search process
- Executive onboarding
Below he sums up what executive search firms must do to tackle the new GDPR rules - click on the link below to read his whole post.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was one of the main topics during both days. There are so many different opinions of how GDPR will affect the daily life of corporations in possession of personal data. GDPR really sets the bar for how we and our organisations look after the personal data of our customers, our staff and ourselves – and sets the bar high. What are the keys to success then? You should plan and be aware of the new regulation taking place 05/2018. Audit and assess -what personal data do I collect and process and for what purposes. Put everything in writing and document it. Check and upgrade your process, systems and procedures, meaning that internal and external data is protected and the system supports this. Train and support your employees and monitor compliance.
