GDPR compliant recruiting software

Manage the requirements of GDPR quickly and effectively with all-in-one recruiting software

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives Europeans more control over how their personal information is used.

Wherever your organization is based (even if you’re outside the EU), if you’re processing the personal data of EU residents GDPR applies to you.

Still using spreadsheets to manage your hiring?

If your organization is planning for GDPR compliance, then spreadsheets will prove problematic when storing candidate data:

  • Provide a poor audit trail
  • No access controls
  • Poor versioning
  • Easily duplicated and modified by anyone with access

Using spreadsheets to track and manage candidate data increases the risk of non-compliance with GDPR, and could prove costly if you’re hit with a GDPR fine.
