Workplace wellbeing!!! I understand it’s difficult to start getting your head around at times with so many other important tasks and projects in your business needing attention. For those of you in charge of implementing wellbeing, it seems like a mammoth task at times. Where do you start?

Automated Decision Making and Data Protection – when can you use it?

With more and more of our day to day life happening in an online environment, many decisions are inevitably made by computers, with no human involvement – a process called automated decision-making.  Organisations use technology, including algorithms and machine-learning, to collect and analyse a range of personal data about an individual – from their buying habits to lifestyle data, from social network data to mobile phone data.  Automated individual decision-making is frequently used for the purposes of profiling. Profiling is defined by the GDPR as: “ Any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal...
