HR Open Standards is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year. We want to share some of our milestones with you and show you how we got to be 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.
HR Open Standards is pleased to announce our newly appointed board member, David Garrett of NGA Human Resources. Re-elected members include: Bon Idziak, Accurate Background; Yamini Polisetty, SAP/Successfactors; Jason Sole, Direct Employers Association; Ingolf Teetz, Milch & Zucker; and Jan-Willem van der Boom, Manus.
Continuing in two-year terms are: Rick Barfoot, HRNX; Andrew Cunsolo, Talemetry; Suneel Mendiratta, ADP and David Vargas, US Office of Personnel Management.
Consortium officers include: Andrew Cunsolo, President and Chairman; Jason Sole, Secretary; and Suneel Mendiratta, Treasurer.
To show our appreciation for the hard work of our Board Members, Project Team Leads, and Star Volunteers, HR Open Standards has issued badges for individuals to display on their social media pages. These badges acknowledge the service and contributions to our organization and allow the recipient to stand out to their colleagues and peers. As a special form of recognition, badges are issued to current or previous Board of Directors, members who lead a standards development project or committee, and volunteers who have contributed over and above expected volunteer duties.
