Taxonomies have become increasingly important to human resources as the profession has become more sophisticated in understanding the value of data and using data to make people decisions. This interesting topic came from the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) in their article, “Taxonomies’ Impact on Data Reliability and Use.”

Taxonomies not only provide users with greater control over data, but also with the ability to create and manage the relationships between data entities – a critical tool if more effective business knowledge is to be gained and generated.

While terms related to human resources management may seem straight forward and easily understood, there is often variation in the use of these terms not only between organizations, but also within organizations. One of the solutions to this challenge is in establishing a taxonomy to agree on the consistent definitions of terms, such as job titles and skills, so they are applied uniformly across offices, lines of business and geographies.

Making data accessible is something we know a little about. Whatever you are searching for, it is important to have a comprehensive search feature and quality indexing against a standards-based taxonomy. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
