How Standards Bolster Innovation

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.

Standards are Worthless Unless You Use Them

Posted by HR Open Standards on Apr 22, 2015 1:18:07 PM

Written by: Mike Seidle

A good standard is one everyone uses.

Well, duh, right?

While I was on the board of directors for an international standards consortium (HR Open Standards), the biggest battle has always been getting developers to use the standard.  When we did, we got amazing things to happen, like getting 18 states to start providing compliance receipts for job deliveries in just a few months. Like enabling entire marketplaces.

Nearly everyone who I’m aware of who launched an HR Open initiative has finished quickly for a few reasons:

Payroll Jurisdictional Requirements

Posted by HR Open Standards on Jul 17, 2012 1:24:38 PM

As a global standards organization, HR-XML has developed most of its specification for the general population and extended those specifications for country and jurisdictional requirements. The Payroll industry is an exciting challenge as each country, province, state, city, etc. has its own rules, particularly when calculating taxes. For example, Canadian provinces utilize letters of waivers to authorize tax credits and deductions. Netherlands includes a tax credit for the elderly and Germany considers bargaining units when calculating taxes.

These and many other requirements must be discussed when developing the standard.

Written by: Jasper Roes

Since the start of SETU in 2007, SETU has been active in customizing the international HR-XML standard for use in the flexible staffing industry in the Netherlands. A lot of work has been done in the nearly five years that the SETU exists. Standards were developed to exchange requests for quotes, offers, assignments, timecards, and invoices.
