If you want to learn best practice in handling data in light of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), you can do no better than to look at DuPont. Now part of science giant DowDuPont following a merger last year, data is part of the DNA of the organisation and it has a long history of embedding data protection into its culture.
To learn more, we spoke to Edith Hamelryckx, HR Manager Integrated Operations & Industrial Relations Leader EMEA at DuPont de Nemours who attended SD Worx European Conference 2018 in London as speaker early last month.
“GDPR is not shocking at all to us. It’s natural behaviour.”
Founded back in 1802, DuPont has a long background in protecting intellectual property, inventing everything from nylon and Lycra to Teflon and owning brands ranging from Corian solid surfaces to Kevlar fibre and Pioneer seeds. As such, data security has always been at the heart of what it does. You could call it a pioneer in the area.
Hamelryckx views GDPR as a positive step forward, bringing harmonisation to Europe. “As well as being an obligation, it reinforces the message that you are a strong employer, respecting customers and suppliers and doing the right thing with core information. It has a reputational and image building side,” she says.
With such expertise to impart, SD Worx asked Hamelryckx to share some of the data handling practices used at DuPont.

The end of the payroll year is typically a very stressful time for payroll teams. With an extensive amount of tasks to be completed within tight deadlines, any mistakes can be costly.
However, the end of year process can be drastically simplified by engaging with tailored payroll software. This technology can be utilised to assist payroll professionals throughout the year, but how can it help payroll teams in April each year?
