iWorkGlobal, an authority in global workforce management, has joined the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework with its participation in the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission on May 10, 2018.
According to the program’s overview, the Privacy Shield, which is administered by the International Trade Administration (ITA) within the U.S. Department of Commerce, enables U.S.-based organizations to join the Privacy Shield Framework in order to benefit from the adequacy determinations.
In order to participate in the framework, iWorkGlobal had to prove and certify its compliance with the Privacy Shield’s 23 principles regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries.
“iWorkGlobal is driven by our mantra of Service, Service, Service, which includes protecting the privacy of those we engage with as a company,” said Jeff Phelps, CEO of iWorkGlobal. “Our team of global human resources, legal and technology experts has seamlessly integrated the principles of the Privacy Shield into our operations, ensuring compliance and increasing our service level experience – not just for those in the EU, but throughout the world.”
