a new ethical and digital charter for and by HR

A new ethics charter was presented by LabRH and CFE CGC to set the framework for best practices for the use of digital solutions by HR. François Geuze, director of HR Fiablab and HR expert is one of the co-authors. A public consultation has just been launched to collect the contributions of the greatest number.

The initiative was launched by the CFE-CGC, a majority union for executives, and managed in partnership with LabRH, both of whom are concerned about the issue of personal data, in the context of the application of the GDPR next May. .
