CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The HR-XML Consortium met recently with the Korea Employment Information Service (KEIS), Korea’s employment research institute, to discuss the adoption of HR-XML standards throughout the organization.
HR-XML’s internationally-recognized XML vocabulary standards for Human Resources (HR)-focused technology solutions will help KEIS more easily gather and transfer the massive amounts of employment information that it processes for the nation each year.
“As nations rely more and more on wide-scale research to recognize and monitor employment trends, HR-XML’s standards can help simplify much of the data collection and analysis through the use of standard XML vocabularies recognized throughout the world,” said Romuald Restout, HR-XML President. “Our partnership with KEIS will help them better serve the Korean public, and will help expand the universality of HR-XML standards. We are truly excited that KEIS recognizes how HR-XML can enhance the efficiency of its important work.”
As a sub-agency of the Korea Ministry of Labor, KEIS conducts occupational research on a national and international level, and provides vocational counseling, overseas work placement, and employment information for the nation’s workforce.
“By partnering with HR-XML, KEIS will be able to build an efficient HR-XML standard for Korea’s labor market,” said Dr. Hyoungrae Kim, Director of KEIS. “We also expect this standard will be easier to maintain with support from the HR-XML Consortium. At our technical meeting with the Consortium in June, their excellent presentation helped us understand the structure of the HR-XML standard, and we are joining the organization with confidence. I am happy to have a partnership with HR-XML Consortium.”
HR-XML and KEIS will continue building their relationship in the coming months, exploring and identifying ways that the standards can help drive efficiencies within the organization’s many services.
