What others are saying

We require all of our developers to take each HR Open Standards video course.

The result is that our developers have a much better understanding of the recruiting industry as well as a clear understanding of HR Open Standards.

When it comes to data, everyone is on the same page and we aren’t having meetings about what to name fields anymore.
