General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for HR Professional

Our sell out GDPR for HR Professionals workshop is being repeated. This course received exceptional feedback from HR Teams when presented on various occasions earlier this year and is now being delivered in house to large organisations so I would like to share with you details of our next open session.

GDPR now needs no introductions! The deadline date has now passed and new legislation is due in force in the Isle of Man in the coming weeks. There is a considerable onus on the shoulders of HR Teams to deal appropriately and lawfully with the vast amounts of personal data landing on their desks. This especially written content will prepare you for that.

Who is this course for?

This workshop is aimed at Human Resources Professionals and those staff involved in the Human Resources function.

What does the course involve?

This workshop is a specific introduction to GDPR and its effects on HR management. It is built around our well received session on the new General Data Protection Regulations. Specifically with HR management in mind, it covers:

  • What does GDPR look like and how does it impact HR;
  • Practical considerations for day-to-day HR management in a GDPR world; and
  • What is the worse that could happen? – practical planning and applying the results to achieve best business practice.

The workshop will conclude with round-table discussions of practical solutions to possible scenerios.
