On August 18th 2017, the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) obtained the ‘HR Excellence in Research’ logo awarded by the European Commission. This recognition shows the institute’s commitment to implement policies and best practices to reach the standards of the European Commission in Human resources. Through the implementation of the principles of the EC’s European Charter of Researchers and Code of Conduct the ICIQ will ensure an stimulating and favourable working environment that will help the institute attract the best researchers worldwide.
ICIQ’ HRS4R Action Plan
Our Human Resources Strategy for Researchers Action Plan (HRS4R Action Plan) was drawn up by the institute’s Social Involvement Committee in a participative and open process involving this Working Group with representatives from all staff and the whole ICIQ employees through a general survey. It enables ICIQ to fulfill its human resources strategic objectives through different actions. The 2016-2020 Action Plan comprises 18 actions related to 4 pillars:
1) Ethical and professional aspects
3) Working conditions and Social Security
We envision implementing the current HRS4R Action Plan as a means of boosting our researchers’ careers and enhancing their future opportunities.
