In coordination with WG 5, WG 2 provides guidance on metrics that can be used to assess efficiency, effectiveness, and impact of the recruitment process.

Current Status & next steps

WG5 Project background:

People decisions were among the most central decisions in any organization. The preparation of such decisions, about development, investments in training, hiring or placement often were supported by formal assessments, conducted by internal or external service providers.

The quality of those assessments was not easily judged by the internal or external client. The market of service providers was growing and the quality of those services was quite heterogeneous.

That was the starting point of a project in Germany almost 25 years ago. The result was DIN 33430, the German standard for aptitude diagnostics. Then the idea came up, to start the work on an international standard for assessment. In 2011 ISO 10667 Assessment delivery was published. It was divided in two parts, one for the service provider and one fort the client. It was the result of a tremendous and joined effort of experts from Austria, China, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the USA.

It marked a milestone in ISO work, because it was the first ISO Standard in this area. And it marked a milestone for assessment as well, because it was the first time an international group of experts agreed on an assessment standard within the ISO framework.

The revision project was initiated in September 2017 within TC 260 to adapt for technological progress made in this field and now the National Standardization Bodies involved are calling for experts to participate in this work.

The decision of TC 260 to revise ISO 10667 bases mainly on the technological advancements observed in the last years in the assessment market. The goal is to thoroughly examine if updates are necessary and which new technologies or other topics should be covered in the standards.

If you feel that you could contribute to the work, (please see "Want to get involved?": https://committee.iso.org/home/tc260 ) and contact your National Standardization Body (please see National Standardization Bodies of ISO https://www.iso.org/members.html) and ask if there is already a group working on this issue or if they see the possibility to start one to join the work.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Convenor.

Working Group 7 - Human capital reporting (deactivated)

 

Finished projects  

ISO 30414:2018 Human resource management — Guidelines for internal and external human capital reporting

Project under Development

-none-

Objectives & Key Deliverables 

According to the Human Capital reporting guidelines, “metrics can help the organization to understand how purposeful investment in people can create and preserve Human Capital value and, in doing so, improve productivity and performance.”

These guidelines allow information relevant to important business-crucial Human Capital issues: compliance, costs, diversity, leadership, occupational health and safety, organizational culture, productivity, recruitment, mobility and turnover, skills and capabilities, succession planning and workforce availability. All these areas can be measured and reported (internal and external) with specific metrics.

ISO 30414 is intended to provide all stakeholders an objective way of meaningfully comparing the overall human capital investments and outcomes using a process that can be simplified for smaller enterprises. The purpose is not only to help investors and corporate management assess the potential for sustainable growth, but also to provide information that can be meaningful to management for more effective organizational governance and management.

None

Objectives & Key Deliverables

Learning and development comprises planned activities undertaken in the workplace to increase the performance of people at individual, team or organizational levels. This document provides guidance on effective processes to manage and evaluate learning and development.

0.2 Learning and development in the organizational context

Learning in the workplace is influenced by organizational context, priorities, opportunities, regulatory frameworks, and available resources, including technological resources. Presents effective organizational learning and development involves a process of ‘plan’ (P), ‘do’ (D), ‘check’ (C) and ‘act’ (A) through identifying and meeting learning objectives at individual, group and organizational levels that will equip employees with knowledge, skills and capabilities to contribute to reaching organizational goals. This can contribute to organizational outcomes such as improved organizational capability, employee engagement, change-readiness and employee retention.

To provide guidance for the organization of learning and development in the workplace. This guidance is concerned with formal and informal learning that addresses short-term operational needs and the long-term skills needs of an organization as well as the career-related and life-long learning needs of individual workers as these align with organizational context and strategy. The administrative operations connected with the organization of learning and development are outside the scope of this document.

In this document, where any process involving one-to-one or group interaction is referred to, such interaction can be either face-to-face or through some form of online technology.
