Those of you that know me will be aware that I believe that the success of each of my client companies relates to how you manage your employees — not just dealing with bits of paper (although having a trail of evidence is always to be recommended when mitigating risks!)
That is why Cherington HR has partnered with breatheHR, a cloud-based HR software solution designed to tame the paper chaos, so that you can get out from behind your desk and focus on running your business.
Having spent the last few months talking to clients about GDPR and data protection I have realised that whilst many of you now have data protection policies and are compliant from that aspect, actually sorting out the paper files, spreadsheets and other documents you and your managers hold on your staff is quite another challenge. Being able to respond to a Subject Access Request (SAR) within the new one-month timescale could be a problem for some people, so having all the data in one place would make it much simpler and less time-consuming.
According to the ICO’s own official statistics, mishandling of SARs is the number one data protection issue complained about by the public. In 2016, 42% of the more than 18,000 data protection-related complaints lodged with the ICO concerned individuals’ rights to access their personal data held by organisations.
By focusing on simplicity and ease of use, breatheHR will enable you to improve several aspects of your people management including:
• Holiday processes
• Analysing sickness
• Tracking performance
• Managing performance
As well as being able to respond swiftly to SARs.
Having recently undergone training to become an accredited breathe partner, I can now offer this system through Cherington HR to help support you better. With prices starting at just £9 (+VAT) per month for micro businesses (and free for registered charities under 250 employees) it is an inexpensive way to protect your business whilst increasing productivity.
