If you cast your mind back just a couple of weeks, you’ll remember the hoo-haa that preceded the General Data Protection Regulation coming into force.
Every Tom, Dick and Henrietta was emailing their list, asking them to ‘opt back in’, and snake oil salespeople galore were making money from the GDPR fear.
I decided to cut through the clutter, and provide a DIY GDPR For Golf Clubs product, containing all the templates you need to get GDPR compliant when it comes to handling your employees and their data.
And – unsurprisingly – I sold A LOT of them.
Running up to the May 25th deadline, the interest in them intensified, to the point where my team and I were super busy getting them out of the door in time.
It got me thinking though: people were taking action on a regulation that hadn’t even come into force yet, because they were scared of the repercussions of not taking action.
But despite that, every single week, every single day, golf club managers remain totally and utterly UN-compliant in numerous other areas of employment law.
