HR Metadata is a wiki that describes the metadata of IT systems used in the HR processes of the Dutch national government. It implements the ISO 11179 model. It can be used to store definitions (meaning), ownership, form and other attributes of the data used in a variety of situations. It is especially important in situations where common definitions are misused, misunderstood or ill-defined. In those situations, you might get a confusion of tongues. Even for a simple metric like the number of staff (or its full-time equivalent, FTE), this may or may not include people outside the regular staff, people hired for less than a year, people hired with a zero-hour contract, people currently on sick leave, etc.; all combinations have been used.
