HR Open Standards Consortium has issued the approved release of the 4.1 data exchange specifications. This release includes JSON specifications for: Assessments, Benefits, Compensation, Interviewing, Recruiting, Screening, Timecard, and Wellness schemas.

Jason Sole from Direct Employers states, “This is an exciting time for HR Open Standards! For the last 18 months, dozens of volunteers from across the world, representing experts in many different domains of the HR Industry, have been working with dedication to build an industry leading standard. The 4.1 release is a full conversion of our XML standard to JSON and represents a step into the future. Leading with a simpler and easier to understand structure, the JSON standard is designed to easily integrate into the software development process. 4.1 solves both the need of data transfer across systems, and ease of use by the people who work with it.”

Jeff Grann, in his Credential Engine blog, describes the benefits of the new standards. "As HR products support open data specifications, HR professionals can expect continued innovations that help them be even more effective and valuable to their organizations."
