Objectives & Scope

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). The U.S. TAG provides representation for the United States at international meetings of ISO/TC 260, and nominates U.S. experts to participate in the technical development of the standards.

ISO/TC 260 was formed in 2011 to support organizations in the professional management of their workforce. The committee's 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 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.

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

ISO/TC 260 has many published standards and technical specifications, as well as numerous documents in various stages of development and revision to ensure relevance.

Notable published standards focus on vocabulary, knowledge management systems, workforce planning, and internal and external human capital reporting. Some standards currently under development include employee engagement, occupational health and safety metrics, and diversity and inclusion.

The U.S. TAG mirrors the structure of ISO/TC 260.
