The GDPR and Executive Search: What’s the Common Consensus?

Invenias GDPR Survey

With the May 2018 deadline fast approaching, the executive search profession is busy planning their GDPR policies and processes. The application of the legislation presents a number of challenges, not least the fact that the GDPR isn't tailored to meet the nuances of an industry so reliant on high quality personal data. Sadly there is no clear cut rule that organisations should abide by in order to guarantee compliance. However, across the Invenias customer base and the wider market, a common consensus is emerging regarding the approach taken by leading search firms and in-house talent teams as they seek to comply with the legislation.

The Invenias GDPR survey, in conjunction with ComplyGDPR, is the largest survey of executive search professionals and their approach to GDPR compliance. By surveying the market, we will provide the industry with best practice guidance, a common consensus and an additional level of clarity as we approach the May 2018 deadline.

Please take just 5 minutes to share your views on your organisation's approach to the GDPR. In exchange for completing this short survey, all respondents will be sent a copy of our findings.
