The Value and Vindication of Candidate Data: Recruiting in the Age of the GDPR

  • Todays employers should pay especially close attention to the methods by which they process, store, and use candidate data.
  • By not being trustworthy and transparent about their candidate data practices, employers risk not only turning off job seekers, but also losing customers in the long run.
  • The primary idea behind candidate data rights is to empower job seekers to choose who has access to their personal information, to gain visibility into where that data is stored and how it is processed, and to provide informed consent to be collected into a given database.
  • You can also send communications to your candidate database that prompt applicants to return to the career portal to provide consent, review their current information, and request deletion or edits of their personal data.
  • If candidate data were to become compromised, or if applicants were to suspect their personal informationwasbeing abused or disregarded, an employer could quickly run into massive public scrutiny and financial risk.

  • The data tells us that online assessments, and digital interview facial recognition software is better at selecting good candidates than human interviewers.
