As Europe’s existing data protection legislation is no longer fit for purpose, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is to be enforced throughout the European Union (EU) as of May 25, 2018, bringing with it larger fines, more freedom for individuals and significant changes in how personal data is handled, alongside unified data protection rules throughout the EU.
Organisations across the globe will be affected by these new regulations, as organisations doing business within the EU, or any organisation outside the EU handling EU citizens’ data will be expected to comply with the GDPR.
if an organisation has a blatant disregard to comply with the new regulations, penalties can reach an upper limit of €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover – whichever is highest; although it’s very rare that a company will receive the maximum fine. The average cost of a data breach is €3.5 million, which is still a sizeable fine especially when compared to the existing fines that are capped at £500,000.
It’s important to understand that whether you are a sole trader, charity, medium sized business or a global enterprise, these regulations will still apply to you, so long as processing or storing data of EU Citizens is integral to your business or do business in the European Union.
Things such as HR records, CCTV footage, company phones and customer data are all covered by GDPR, so it is highly likely that these regulations will affect your business in some way.
Brexit will not affect the GDPR, as not only will GDPR come into full effect before the UK has fully left the EU, businesses that handle EU citizens data or operate within the EU must abide by new regulation. This therefore means that even after we have departed from the EU, businesses that process data of EU residents must abide by these rules. Additionally, for companies that have offices in the EU – GDPR will still apply.Back to blog
ENS has been our sole agency provider for the past 8 years. During this time we have worked in partnership to establish an agency service that provides us with the assurance that ENS staff are flexible, highly trained and able to adapt to our working environment across all of our diverse services.
ENS has been able to support our services to a very high standard throughout our geographical locations. Key Performance Indicators often exceed agreed outcomes.
Our relationship with their senior team and operational supervisors is professional and open. We are assured that our long standing working relationship with ENS will continue.
To this end we would not hesitate to recommend ENS as an agency provider to support their organisation.
We needed to fill two last minute vacancies with high quality teachers. With this brief, Julie from ENS did not disappoint. One candidate was from Canada and Julie ensured that the move over went as smoothly as possible both for the teacher and the school.
What impressed me the most was how Julie listened to exactly what I required and so no time was wasted on my part, sifting through candidates who would not have been good enough for my school. I would highly recommend ENS to another school looking to fill their teacher vacancies.
My daughter Lynda has enjoyed 24 hour care provided by ENS since July 2013. The care staff are all well trained & briefed as to her complex healthcare regime & are also very sociable. This is very important to Lynda who loves to talk &interact with them. They also manage her household budget, encourage her to participate in domestic tasks within her capabilities, & promote a healthy lifestyle. The administration of ENS is excellent & has ensured that Lynda has a regular rota of carers & that when stand ins are necessary that they have had shadow shifts with her.MG
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the hard work and support you have offered our Foyer and Parent and Child Scheme in managing the placement of temporary staff.
We appreciate the level of consistency and continuity your staff have bought to the schemes and would not hesitate in recommending the services of ENS Recruitment.
