And so, I want to write a bit about the practical activities we are up to back at Phase 3 base on GDPR and our data.
We feel confident in our work on the readiness for the regulations becoming effective on 25 May 2018. But we feel fortunate because control of data and technology is something core to our small business. This may not be the situation you are in. Nor does ‘doing data’ necessarily come naturally to the typically self-styled people-person of HR.
I would like to see here on Insights the full Phase 3 story of GDPR once we are entirely through, as the more that we can do to dispel myth and legend, divert dangers and do the right thing by our data the better.
As Managing Director, I’m not too close to the detail of each activity, approving iterations and outcomes only, but I know that here are a few of the things we have afoot on GDPR. I put these to you because I want to do a translation exercise – just as we do on HR Tech – to make meaningful that which risks a too-detailed descent into doing. Precisely. Not enough.
GDPR is one to be taken seriously. But taking something seriously means translating into practical action.
