HR meeting

UTMB recently hosted the International Organization for Standardization/Technical Committee 260 (ISO/TC 260) meeting for Human Resource Management. The meeting brought together more than 40 delegates and experts from 13 countries to develop standards involving human governance, recruitment, workforce planning and HR terminology. These standards will provide guidance to HR practitioners across the globe.

UTMB’s Dr. Ronald B. McKinley, vice president for Human Resources and Employee Services, said it was an honor to serve as the head of the ISO/TC 260U.S. delegation.

“It is important to note that UTMB is also the administrator for the U.S.Mirror Committee to ISO TC/260, which works with member countries to develop standards that ‘mirror’ each other, and is the accredited developer of domestic U.S. Standards in healthcare administration,” McKinley said.“These two activities put UTMB at the forefront of positive change affecting the efficient management of health care organizations on a global basis.”
