Contingent Staffing Workgroup

The HR Open Standards Contingent Staffing workgroup is tasked with developing and maintaining standards to support the transmission of Staffing Industry information between trading partners. Trading partners within this industry would usually include a staffing supplier and customers, master vendors, vendor management systems, and eProcurement tools.

Note that the Contingent Staffing and Recruiting workgroups have similar business processes and may work together on specific projects. Additionally, both groups use similar content through common components, ensuring the specifications are closely aligned.
