Thursday 19 April 2018 by AP Group Global]

Dear readers, 


At AP Group, our goal is to deliver bespoke staffing solutions whilst helping ambitious professionals to fulfil their career aspirations. We operate with utmost efficiency, reliability and know-how, and are extremely proud of what we have achieved to this day.


As AP Group continues to adjust to global market conditions, we remain conversant with the many changes taking place within and around the international workplace. One of the most significant investments we have made in recent years is to our technological solutions, and by adopting the latest technological advances we are able to continually augment our success and support our clients in unparalleled ways.


One of the most pressing subjects in recent times has been that of the GDPR, or the General Data Protection Regulation. 


The GDPR, a revised EU regulation set to replace the current EU Data Protection Directive and due to come into effect on 25 May 2018, has sent businesses across the globe into panic mode as they try to determine the best steps to take to ensure absolute compliance while under time constraints. 


Many businesses around the world will be impacted by the GDPR, including those that manage and process personal data of individuals who are residents of the EU, the EEA and the UK (including the UK post-Brexit). 


As an international business, we understand the importance of the GDPR’s requirements – as well as its complexities. 


We are adopting many measures to ensure that our systems appropriately handle personal data and provide complete protection to our clients’ personal data. 


Thus far, our innovative technology has helped to accelerate our response to the legislation and ensure we are GDPR ready. 


We have also implemented a number of measures to ensure that we are always operating within the parameters of the GDPR and that all of our data processing activities and policies are regularly reviewed – and fully compliant.  We regularly update recruitment policies as a member of APSCo, the governing body for international recruitment agencies, and we are pleased that APSCo have maintained a rigorous course in ensuring that its members are fully kept up to date and have GDPR information at our fingertips.


Our goal at AP Group has always been to maintain equilibrium for our clients whilst operating with utmost transparency, integrity and respect. We remain committed to keeping security and privacy at the forefront of our operations in order to safeguard our company, our reputation and above all else, our clientele. 


Finally, we strive to consistently operate to the highest professional standards with utmost confidentiality, discretion and excellence. This is one of the many reasons why countless businesses and individuals choose AP Group to fulfil their recruitment requirements. 
We are so proud of the relationships we have established with our clients and are excited about what the future holds at AP Group. 


If you have any concerns or worries relating to data that AP Group may hold relating to you as a candidate or client then please do not hesitate to get in touch with me on gina@apgroupglobal.com
