GDPR recruitment

[INFOGRAPHIC]: 2018 GDPR recruitment implications – get ready!

By | Hiring Statistics, Human Resources, Infographic, IT recruitment | One Comment

As of 25 May 2018, companies who collect personal data of EU residents have to become compliant with the GDPR (the General Data Protection Regulation). The 2018 GDPR recruitment implications are manifold and they involve giving individuals more control over their personal data, as well as simplifying the data protection environment.

HR and recruitment professionals rely heavily on personal data which they collect and store. In fact, decisions made throughout the recruitment process are based on personal information such as education or professional experience.  What is more, the EU GDPR places the burden of compliance on the organization collecting and/or storing the data. For that reason, it’s in their hands to ensure compliance before the deadline arrives. 

We’ve put together data on the effect the 2018 GDPR will have on recruitment and presented it in a handy infographic you can find below. Let’s get started! Read More

How to design a fully functional hiring process in IT

By | Hiring Statistics, Human Resources, Recruiting Tips | No Comments

According to Global HR Research,“66% of companies make a bad hiring decision each year”.  That’s right. 66 out of 100 companies looking for people to join them make a mistake somewhere in the hiring process.

As Les McKeown, CEO of Predictable Success argues in a remarkable post How to Hire Great People – Every Time, “the success of your business is in the hands of your people. They take hundreds – probably thousands – of individual actions on your behalf every day, and if the sum total of all those actions is a net positive, you win. If the overall result is a net negative, you lose.“ In other words, bad hiring affects your organizational outcomes, big time.
