Abstract

This paper reports the aftermath of GDPR implementation in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Ireland, primarily within the recruiting function of HR. The paper summarizes the various policies and procedures that the SMEs incorporated into the recruiting criteria to be GDPR compliant. This work also throws light upon the easier, and harder approaches companies had to take, and the results of these policies from statistical data regarding the candidate inflow through applications. The paper discusses the extent to which GDPR affected the recruiting industry, and the changes made to be GDPR compliant by companies would exist if the law were to undergo amends shortly. The collection of research information is through semi-structured interviews with HR professionals working in Irish SMEs.

Keywords: GDPR, GDPR compliance, GDPR in recruiting, GDPR in SMEs, GDPR in an Irish context.
