Is recruitment a pain for your business, too?

In our IT world, recruitment of competent staff with a great attitude is a real issue. It’s why we work so hard at keeping our existing team happy.

Research shows that the best staff look for more than job security and a decent pay packet.

They want to be engaged. And involved in the business. In fact, they look for:

  • Genuine involvement in business decisions
  • Engagement in Corporate Social Responsibility activities
  • A culture of co-operation, not competition
  • Investment in technology

The first three are up to you. But if you want help with great technology that brings real value to your business and staff, we can help.

Is your website still legal? (new guidance)

Is your website still legal? (new guidance)

Cookies.

Not the delicious ones with chocolate chips in.

But the online ones, that let websites track people who have visited before.

The Information Commissioner’s Office has released new guidance about cookies. And it’s important that your website complies.

In a nutshell:

  1. All website operators (that’s you) must provide clear and comprehensive information about their use of cookies and obtain valid consent
  2. Implied consent isn’t enough. You must enable visitors to your site to select a clear “yes” or “no” option
  3. These standards must specifically refer to consent under the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR)

Sure, it’s a pain. But a small piece of work to keep your website compliant.

Can we help with any other aspect of your GDPR? We’re specialists in the data protection side of it.
