HR Excellence in Research

HRS4R logo

On December 21st, 2017, the Catalan Institute of Human Paleoecology and Social Evolution (IPHES) obtained the ‘HR Excellence in Research’ logo awarded by the European Commission. The Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) proves that the IPHES endorses the general principles of the European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (Charter & Code), and firmly supports its commitment in improving internal policies and procedures. This recognition of excellence is an opportunity to establish a comprehensive and coherent Human Resources Strategy that should allow to achieve international visibility by providing a favourable working environment for research with equal opportunities, ethical integrity and work-life balance.



IPHES’ HRS4R Action Plan

Our Human Resources Strategy for Researchers Action Plan (HRS4R Action Plan) was drawn up by a working group in a participative and open process involving the representatives of all of the IPHES’ research areas through a general survey. The 2016-2020 Action Plan comprises 9 actions related to 4 pillars:
1) Ethical and professional aspects
2) Recruitment
3) Working conditions and Social Security
4) Training
