Employee turnover is an inevitable part of any business. While fresh ideas and perspectives can be a great asset, what is the real cost of losing employees and bringing in new staff? There is the obvious monetary cost but there are many more factors to consider.
HR Open Standards Consortium and PESC have worked together in the past. However, the new formal partnership will allow more fluid collaboration. Both organizations are excited about how this new level of co-operation will greatly benefit members of both organizations as well as the HR standards industry as a whole through the sharing of knowledge, development efforts and education.
There is an ever increasing amount of data privacy and security legislation employers must comply with, including the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). To help organizations handling employee data comply with these increasingly complex Data Privacy regulations, HR Open Standards Consortium just released an HR-JSON Data Protection Standard that guides organizations managing the transfer of PII to third parties while meeting privacy requirements.

A Quick Look into the Past
Towards the end of the 19th century, electrical engineering became one of the core engines of the second industrial revolution. As Nicholas Carr put it, in "The Big Switch," manufacturing energy provided factories "with a decisive advantage over other manufacturers. The company was able to expand the yield and efficiency of its factory. [...] Like other factories of the time, they were as much in the business of manufacturing energy as manufacturing goods". This of course, quickly changed, as power plants started to rise and provide energy at a low-cost to everyone.
An aspect that is often overlooked in that story is that none of this could have happened without the emergence of standards.
