Benefits Administration

Challenge

Human Resources needs a way to gather feedback from employees as to what benefits or perks they would like. Once suggestions are submitted, HR needs to evaluate them before deciding whether to include them in any benefits package.

  • Enable employees to keep track of the status of their suggestions.
  • Route the suggestions to the correct stakeholders for review.

Data Privacy Use Cases

See how TAP Workflow Automation can help organizations stay compliant with new regulations regarding personal data.

CCPA Deletion Request

The CCPA gives consumers the right to request that businesses delete personal information that the business has collected from the consumer. This workflow keeps deletion requests on-stream, auditable, and ready for public consumption.

Challenge

Create a public-facing workflow that seamlessly gathers information for a customer through Accounting, HR, and/or Finance. Ensure ease-of-use for the end user while keeping everything aligned and audited internally.

Solution

  • Workflow, including specification of stakeholders and notifications, is completely customizable.
  • Forms can be built in TAP with embedded business logic, dropdown fields and other features, customizable by type of personal information or other specifics.
  • Easy-to-use online self-service forms allow public users to submit requests for deletion of personal data.
  • Once submitted, requests are automatically routed to proper stakeholders/managers for review.
  • Internal SLAs and formal requests for extension can be built into the form.
  • Approval or denial notifications can be automatically generated and sent to requesters and/or contractors.

Benefits

  • “Privacy By Design” ensures that companies are compliant without need of additional management or manpower.
  • Diverse teams can complete their due diligence work-streams in parallel, and are also given opportunities for collaboration.
  • Intakes are submitted, processed, and screened with far greater speed and minimized errors, delays and costs.
  • Forms are branded to have the same look and feel as the company website for the best end user experience.
  • Central dashboard provides superior monitoring and governance of all sourcing processes.
  • Automatic centralized archiving of workflow data and assets provides for detailed recordkeeping and review.

ROI

Showing up for data privacy isn’t just a good way to show consumers that you care. Failure to do so gets expensive: If you’ve failed to delete a personal data record when requested, or it’s sold without the person’s permission, or leaked, the minimum fine is $2,500 per record. The fine escalates the longer it takes to fix the issue, too. If it’s determined that a breach was due to a known issue you ignored, the fine can automatically shoot up to its cap of $7,500 per record. Multiply this times the number of records that might be involved and you can see how noncompliance can get ruinously costly.
