GDPR News

GDPR news – who received the first fines and why?

If you have still not completed (or started) your GDPR journey you can always contact LIS for assistance. We will deal with the technicalities of system changes needed and highlight any business issues you need to consider.  Having recently reviewed our client base for GDPR we see some clients with their heads still firmly buried in the sand. The bad news is that it is not going away! Worryingly even some of our local government clients are refusing to move on clear significant breaches of the GDPR rules on grounds of cost.  If your business has not completed a review and made the changes needed then please don’t wait – you don’t want to appear on this list!

Brexit HR Game changer?

How will Brexit change the game for HR?

I know that we are all bored of Brexit, but it is the gift that keeps on giving. The focus today is on HR.

Brexit is impacting on recruitment, retention, legislative framework, the mergers and acquisitions world, training and management of staff. Not just in terms of uncertainty which has become a given, but with the changes that have occurred already.

LIS can help by supporting mobile working, working from home, automation and telephony solutions which enable creative solutions to the current HR challenge. Call us if you need to chew it over. Oh, and if your current helpdesk can’t greet your users by name when they call and remember if they are on android or apple without having to ask, give us a try. Personal, professional IT support beats anonymous impersonal scripting every time.
