Trying to combine two data sets into a single view

Example:

 

I have a set of data from HR that lists a name and a title such as:

Source: HR 
NameTitle
Bob SmithX
Jane SmithY
Janet JonesX
Robert JonesX

 

I have a second data set from Payroll that lists a name and a title.

 

Source: Payroll 
NameTitle
Bob SmithX
Jane SmithX
  
Robert JonesX
Roger JonesY

 

Notice that some but not all of the names in the first data source are present in the second data sources.  Also notice that the titles are not necessarily the same between the two data sources.

 

I would like to combine those two datasets into a discrepancy report that would look something like this:

 

NameHR TitlePayroll Title
Bob SmithXX
Jane SmithYX
Janet JonesX 
Robert JonesXX
Roger Jones Y

 

From that joined data I could add further logic to call out discrepancies between the two datasets.

 

What is the best method of combining those data sets?
