Abstract

The goal of GDPR is to harmonize consumer rights in the European Union regardless of where they are or where they come from. This has an impact on the processing of personal data within organizations - especially in human resources departments. GDPR has major consequences in the HR field as the employer processes employee data (and potential employees) on a large scale. At the formal level, the Human Resources Director must ensure that the new concepts introduced by the Regulation are correctly reflected in the internal documents governing the duties and responsibilities of the employees. The biggest challenge in this regard is defining the role of the data protection officer at the organization level. The methodological section of this article includes a narrative analysis based on an interview with a data protection officer, head of compliance guide to GDPR. The purpose of this study reflects the impact of the Personal Data Regulations on the Human Resources activities. It is useful for organizations and subjects to know what particular attention should be paid regarding GDPR to the recruitment process, the access methods of the equipment available to the employee, the data protection solutions in the systems and the employee monitoring system.
