MHR to help UK manufacturers get GDPR ready

Human capital solutions provider MHR has announced a roadshow of training workshops throughout the UK to help manufacturers prepare for the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

It says that the GDPR, due to come into force on 25 May 2018, is the biggest change to the management and processing of personal data since the Data Protection Act 1998.

The one-day workshops will take place in five regions across the UK throughout September (see below) and will aim to debunk the common myths surrounding GDPR and provide practical support and advice to delegates on key areas, including the implications on HR and Payroll and the legal basis for data processing, data retention, data security and what to do in the event of a breach.

Says MHR chief commercial officer Tim Johnson: “As the introduction of the GDPR draws ever nearer, the media is littered daily with lots of scaremongering articles, false statistics and contradicting information about what organisations must do to enforce compliance, resulting in widespread confusion and a general lack of awareness and understanding of its application.

“The aim of the workshops is to remove this confusion and provide much-needed clarity to HR and Payroll professionals so they are equipped with all the information they need to prepare for the impending regulations with confidence.”

The sessions will be held at the following locations and dates:

  • ManchesterRadisson Blu, Manchester Airport, Tues 5 September
  • Scotland – Radisson Blu, Glasgow, Thurs 7 September
  • Midlands - Hilton East Midlands Airport, Weds 13 September
  • Wales - Jurys Inn, Cardiff, Weds 20 September
  • LondonRadisson Blu Edwardian Grafton, Thurs 21 September

The cost of each session is £495 (+VAT) per person and places are limited. For more information and to book, click here.
