iCrowd Newswire – May 12, 2020

HR Open is happy to announce the launch of our new podcast series focused on HR data exchange standards. The HR Open podcast will interview guests to learn about their implementation stories, how they use the standards and HR Open resources in their careers, and why HR Open is important to HR technology. Tune in every two weeks to hear stories from members in our international community who have built and executed the standards.

Jason Sole, President, HR Open Standards describes the purpose of the podcasts. “Technology is ultimately about people. In the past, our collaboration has been built around the creation of standards, and that has worked really well. However, as the market shifts and adapts, we are starting to see a shift in the problems faced by the builders and creators in our industry. We are moving away from a lack of common language towards a need for greater collaboration and cooperation. It is our hope that the podcasts are a first step in providing a space where industry peers of many backgrounds can have a common meeting space.”

Podcast episodes will include:

  • Building Data Standard Specifications
  • How to Simplify your Payroll Implementation
  • Innovations in Assessments
  • The HR Canonical Data Model: Benefits of Using Open Standards
  • Implementation 101: Did You Forget Something?

Starting Tuesday, May 26th, you can stream podcasts on our website, Apple Podcasts, or Spotify. To learn more about HR Open podcasts, visit our website,
