HR Open Standards is partnering with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation on the JDX JobSchema+ Project. The Chamber Foundation recently announced the public feedback period is open on the project which looks to significantly evolve the existing data standard for job postings. HR Open is proud to be working on this project that will support more diverse hiring needs and in-demand skills and competencies in a modern workplace. This project closely relates to HR Open Standards mission to enable innovation in the HR Technology Industry by providing a turnkey solution to the problem of data exchange.
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.
Every year HR Open Standards recognizes outstanding volunteers and their contributions within our workgroups. These volunteers are behind-the-scenes standards (and magic) creators. Thank you to everyone that participates in our workgroups. This year we're pleased to present our Star Volunteer award to Usha Vedula of ADP and David Brunswold of Discovery Benefits. Congratulations and thank you for your hard work!
We had another great year at the 2019 Annual Meeting. Attendees gathered from around the globe to hear about trends in HR technology, where HR is headed in the future, and government initiatives to standardize HR and job data exchanges. The conference allowed workgroups to come together, work on standard initiatives, and network. It was a successful conference and great way to ring in the 20h Anniversary of HR Open Standards.
