Learn about the benefits of using HR Open Standards

Our standards are free, current global HR vocabularies developed in a transparent, collaborative, consensus-based environment open to all HR professionals and organizations. Using HR Open Standards saves on the costs and headaches of integrating internal and external systems, avoids vendor lock-in, gains client confidence by sourcing trusted, standards-based solutions/products and more.

The Future of HR with AI and Blockchain

AI and Blockchain are hot topics in HR right now. The Annual Meeting will host a knowledgable array of speakers and panelists to discuss how these fit in to the future of HR. AI career coaching in an app? Will blockchain cut out the middleman in hiring and payroll? The future is uncertain but come and see what our speakers think.

Network with your peers

Networking with your peers is an important part of any business. It is a great way to meet new people, share ideas and learn from each other. Contacts made can be invaluable for future projects, resources and career changes. You know what they say; it's not just what you know, but who you know.

Get involved in Active JSON development projects

HR Open Standards Consortium is the only independent, non-profit, volunteer-led organization dedicated to the development and promotion of a standard suite of specifications to enable human resource related data exchanges.  We rely on the participation of our members to help improve and develope new standards.

Earn SHRM recertification credits
