GDPR: The Opportunity For Recruiters (Cutting Through the BS!)

    , ,   , ,

GDPR in recruitmentSo – seriously recruiters! … do a trawl of the web for GDPR because you want to “gen-up”, protect your candidate pipeline, marketing strategies and sanity!

Lots to read about GDPR, webinars on GDPR, doom, gloom, admin, ops, restrictions, tears!

Not much of it positive – all of it pretty dull! Even the term GDPR – “General Data Protection Regulations” – instils me with… well, nothing!

How on Earth Can We Make GDPR Exciting!?

I’m a passionate creature who tries to see the good in everything – and even without caffeine my team and clients will testify to me being a happy puppy about most things. Even GDPR – yes, I see it as a great opportunity – a positive chance to get recruiters recruiting again, and not just placing and invoicing.

But the web is littered with really boring / snoring (not rip-roaring) content on GDPR for recruiters – so we got our heads together, and came up with some acronyms which may lighten your “GDPR” load and get you in the mood to read our other (very interesting I might add) blogs and listen to our Podcast on GDPR… oh! And we recorded a webinar with the lovely Broadbean – all about GDPR

UK Recruiter and Barclay Jones Join Forces for More GDPR Wisdom!

I got together with Louise Triance for a great RecruiterZone Crowdcast episode all about GDPR, business growth, and why it’s not just about covering your arse – it’s about creating the recruitment business you’ve always wanted!

We covered:

  • Practical tips for keeping your data
  • How to move into BAU after GDPR hits
  • What you need to think about now and steps you need to take to become compliant

GDPR – What does it really mean?

  • Geothermal Damage by Plundering Recruiters
  • Giant Dingo with Paws Raised
  • Golden Dangling Protracted Radishes
  • Grinding Down Perfect Resourcers
  • Global Desire to Place Randomly

I came up with a couple that were a little too pornographic to add to this blog (and from an SEO perspective would have attracted the wrong hits to our website!)
