Objectives & Scope

People are the greatest value creator and critical investment for most organizations. Human resource management (HRM) international standards help align human resource activities around organizational goals and objectives.

This U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) formulates positions and proposals on behalf of the United States in response to the activities of ISO Technical Committee (TC) 260, Human Resource Management (HRM), which addresses people and organizational management issues systematically and comprehensively. The U.S. TAG provides representation for the United States at international meetings of ISO/TC 260 HRM, and nominates U.S. experts to participate in the technical development of the standards.

ISO/TC 260 HRM was formed in 2011 to support organizations in the professional management of their workforce. The committee's strategic HRM standards offer broad, evidence-based guidance to individuals with people management responsibilities in organizations, whether formally or informally assigned, for the benefit of both internal and external stakeholders.

ISO/TC 260 HRM standards focus on current and anticipated issues in people management. The standards developed are designed to assist in recruitment, retention, and developing the workforce, as well as improving workforce effectiveness and productivity, satisfaction, engagement, and focus.

These standards, based on input from HR experts globally, are designed to provide guidance on key HR functions in support of its workforce and its management, and sustainable organizational performance. For additional information, please visit the ISO/TC 260 HRM website.

The U.S. currently holds the Secretariat position for ISO/TC 260.



ISO/TC 260 HRM, the first ISO Technical Committee dedicated to HR Management, was formed in March 2011. On November 10-11, 2011, ISO/TC 260 HRM U.S. delegates and Participating member countries attend the first official meeting at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City in Washington, DC.

2021 marked 10 years of successfully developing and publishing ISO international standards and technical specifications that benefit organizations of all industry sectors and sizes by addressing current and anticipated issues involving people management.
