Webinar for ESIX (Executive Search Information Exchange)

Privacy Considerations In Executive Searches

27 May 2021

When your organization is searching to fill a new position, you understandably want to find out as much as possible about the candidates who apply. It is difficult to figure all of this out through the traditional hiring process, so many companies resort to seeking additional information about the candidates from publicly available sources, such as social media platforms and other online resources. The nature of personal information that an organization may collect during the hiring process is, however, quite limited due to the EU General Data Protection regulation (GDPR), the implementing laws of the EU Member States and emerging U.S. laws. The objective of this webinar was to discuss practical challenges in collecting publicly available information about (potential) job applicants.
