HR Open Standards Awarded 1st Place “Recruiting Specification” 21st Annual Best Practices from The Postsecondary Electronic Standards Council (PESC)
HR Open Standards is excited to receive the 1st Place Award in PESC’s 21st Annual Best Practices Competition for our Recruiting Specification. PESC President & CEO Michael D. Sessa commented, “like prior standards that have been awarded – U.S. Department of Education for both Common Education Data Standards (CEDS) within the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and Common Record (CR) within Federal Student Aid (FSA), and Access 4 Learning (A4L) Community for SIFA Specification, HR Open Standards enters the circle of trust within the PESC Community.”
HR Open Standards is pleased to accept the award for PESC’s 21st Annual Best Practices Competition. Kim Bartkus, Executive Director, HR Open, describes our relationship, “we’ve worked with PESC for many years, collaborating on projects to improve and advance the accessibility and ease of HR projects. We value their years of service to the HR industry and are excited to share this award with the recruiting workgroup and the members who contribute their time to HR Open Standards.”
Lead by Andrew Cunsolo, VP Product Management at Jobvite/Talemetry, the Recruiting workgroup is responsible for developing and maintaining a variety of standards that fall within the recruiting domain. The Recruiting Specification allows the exchange of job and candidate related data between various actors and systems for the purpose of recruiting. “Candidate” defines a set of information about an applicant or prospective employee or resource. Like a resume or CV, a Candidate document contains details about a person’s education and professional experience, as well as contact information.
Jason Sole, HR Open President and Director of Sales Engineering at DirectEmployers Association accepted the award, “HR Open Standards is humbled by this award. The Recruiting specification is the result of hundreds of hours of volunteer work by HR Open Standards’ Members, and it is on their behalf that we accept this award. Their continued dedication to high quality, effective, and usable standards is the core of our community and we are honored to these efforts recognized.”
