International experts will meet in Sydney in September to continue work to develop standards across a broad range of human resource management areas.
A group of over 50 international experts are expected to come together and contribute as part of an ISO Technical Committee, ISO TC 260 Human Resource Management.
“Bringing global experts in all things human resources to Australia is testament to our success as a contributor to international standards, as well as the calibre of professionals in the Australian sector,” Standards Australia Head of Stakeholder Engagement, Daniel Chidgey said.
The Technical Committee of Standards Australia, MB-009 Human Resource and Employment recently started a project on a new standard around workforce data quality. The human resource professionals and academics on this committee have laid out a clear plan ahead to ensure the standards developed, whether Australian or international, are adding value to the businesses which are adopting the final publications.
“Developing a workforce lifecycle framework has detailed publicly the work planned by the committee,” Chair of the Standards Australia committee responsible, Prof. Ruth McPhail said. “Areas of focus include metrics, knowledge management, sustainable employability, workforce management, diversity and inclusion, performance management, and human capital reporting.”
“Having a clear plan ahead for the sector enables the standards to be more integrated and add greater value to human resources professionals in organisations across many sectors,” said Neil McCormick, a key contributor to the Standards Australia committee developing the standards.
“The attendance of international experts in September is hoped to be even more productive for the sector, thanks to the forward planning of this committee and their recognition of the need for an integrated approach to developing standards around human resource management,” concluded Chidgey.
