HR Open Standards

Active Standards Projects

The Consortium is continually updating our specifications and creating new standards to meet industry needs. A significant benefit to our organizational members is that any of their employees may participate in the standards development. This allows the company to help create the standards and gives them early access to the specifications.


In an effort to foster collaboration and community, HR Open Standards has opened participation in workgroups to non-members. For more information on how to participate for zero cost in our workgroups contact kim@hropenstandards.org.
