HR Open Standards

About Our Work

We simplify HR integrations.

A GLOBAL STANDARDS COMMUNITY

Founded in 1999, the HR Open Standards Consortium is the only independent, non-profit, volunteer-led organization dedicated to the development and promotion of a standard suite of specifications to enable human resource related data exchanges.
Our standards are free, current global HR vocabularies developed in a transparent, collaborative, consensus-based environment open to all HR professionals and organizations.


HR Open Standards has 3 slide shows providing an overview of HR Open and our development process. Please feel free to download any of the slide shows for your use. If you need additional information, please contact us.
