Expert Opinion: GDPR Regulations - how will it affect the processing of personal data of the workforce?
Reward practitioners are having to use more data and cross analyse it with other data, in order to offer targeted benefits and ensure their reward strategies are driving the business. Practitioners are becoming increasingly concerned about what they can, or cannot, do, and what permissions they need to have in place to maximise their data. This session will examine the incoming data laws from a benefits, pensions and pay angle.

  • GDPR legislation - portability from an employee benefits perspective (employee performance, profit levels, whether they have a family etc)

  • Data analysis to meet legislative requirements e.g. auto enrolment and Gender Pay Reporting
