US CHAMBER OF COMMERCE FOUNDATION PARTNERSHIP




HR Open Standards has the privilege of working with the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation (USCCF) on two projects; the T3 Innovation Network and the Job Data Exchange (JDX). These closely related projects align to the mission of HR Open Standards, which enables innovation in the HR Technology Industry by providing a turnkey solution to the problem of data exchange.

“In today’s talent marketplace, data is king. However, in order to organize, manage, and share data effectively we need a solid foundation of inter-operable data standards starting with data on jobs. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is excited to partner with HR Open Standards to update and improve the JobPosting Schema, leverage it as part of the Job Data Exchange (JDX), and make the data that results from it more shareable with credentialing organization and learners through the T3 Innovation Network” 

-Jason Tyszko, U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation

As part of the T3 Innovation Network, HR Open has been able to work alongside the USCCF and its other partners to discuss and brainstorm solutions to problems that challenge both our members and the country at large. Together, we are bringing technical solutions to the dual challenge of the Skills Gap and the Talent Gap that is facing America. These gaps are making it difficult for employers to fill many positions, and has made the need for efficient and effective technical solutions all the more urgent.

An extension of the T3 Innovation Network, the JDX is a real-world technical solution to the communication barriers that exists between employers, government, and educational institutions. Rather than introduce an additional standard into the industry, the JDX aims to leverage the standards that already exist (namely HR Open Standards JSON specification and Schema.org) in order to provide a cooperative environment where data can be exchanged easily between multiple organizations. This will allow State, Federal, Education, and Private Sector forces to communicate effectively and focus their development resources on solving the employment challenges that face America.

As we move into 2019, the HR Open Standards Consortium looks forward to our continued partnership with the USCCF to evolve the standards in 2019 and improve support for education and government organizations. In addition, we are participating on the JDX Advisory Council, making the expertise and experience in our consortium available to the industry in new and exciting ways.

How Standards Boost Business




Written by: Dave Connelly

There is a tremendous new website resource available to all called “Standards Boost Business.”

This website is hosted by the American National Standards Institute and does an excellent job of describing how standards boost business by streamlining, speeding up, and saving money for organizations.

The website describes a concept called Strategic Standardization. The website goes on to tell us that according to the U.S. Department of Commerce, standards and conformity assessment impact more than 80% of global commodity trade. From design and manufacturing to distribution and marketing, all aspects of your industry’s products and services are affected at some point by standardization.
