Webinar: POPIA & Data Privacy for Recruiters with Shane McCusker
It was an absolute pleasure to record this webinar with my good friend Shane McCusker, from Intelligence Software. Shane and I have known each other for years through the international Sourcing & Recruiting Communities and we have developed a very good rapport over the years.
Here is how Shane framed our conversation:
“I’m delighted to be able to share a conversation I had with Vanessa Raath around POPIA. I’ve known Vanessa for very many years and have been delighted with the work she has been doing to build her business as a Recruitment Sourcer and Trainer.
Vanessa is a great person to get the ‘word on the street’ with regard to POPIA. From our conversation, it would appear, that there is still much uncertainty with regard to what POPIA will mean for Recruiters. It is understandably confusing what Recruiters should and should not be doing.
I develop Intelligence, a CRM/ATS for recruitment agencies. I’ve been working with GDPR, the European data privacy legislation, and POPIA for several years. I have some knowledge of the requirements of the legislation and what recruiters are doing with regard to data privacy. With Vanessa, I’ve explained some of the challenges facing recruiters and the steps I believe they must take.”
