HRS4R 102015

  1. 1. Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) Teresa Bertamino European Commission DG Research and Innovation Unit B2 - “ERA Policy and Reform” EURAXESS Rights Team
  2. 2. Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R) Strategy launched in 2008, implementing C & C in a voluntary step-wise procedure: • Internal gap analysis by institution, involving key institutional stakeholders including researchers • Development and publication of institutional HR strategy for researchers and action plan in response to gaps identified • Acknowledgement of progress by Commission • Self-assessment of implementation after two years • External analysis (peer review) after four years Charter & Code
  3. 3. What are the key aspects of the HR Strategy Process? § This mechanism is a support tool. § It is thus voluntary. § It is light to apply and flexible in its validation and verification approach. § It recognizes the variety of situations across institutions and organisations. § The result should be meaningful and reliable information on the actions to implement the Charter and Code principles, which is easily available to the public at large.
  4. 4. Internal gap analysis (Step 1/5) Ø The research institution or funding organisation carries out an internal analysis grouping all the 40 Charter & Code principles in 4 areas ('Ethical and professional aspects', 'Recruitment', 'Working conditions & social security' and 'Training'). Ø All institutional stakeholders should be involved (in particular the group of researchers employed/funded) Ø Focus on institutional practices and policies. Ø Analyse both level of importance (how serious is the issue?) • and groups affected (keep in mind significant minorities!) Ø Template available for internal use – should help structure work but is not mandatory! Ø Analysis of legal framework where it could impede implementation of C&C or already fully covers some aspects Ø Regrouping may be useful
  5. 5. Action Plan and Publication (Step 2/5) Ø Should summarize the key outcomes of gap analysis (strengths & weaknesses) Ø Short explanation of approach (who was involved, how have • stakeholders been consulted?) Ø Action plan should be reasonably concrete with clear milestones • – must include responsibilities (lead department/function) and target dates Ø Include both short term items and longer term strategic items Ø Establish clear links to overall institutional strategy and vision Ø How will implementation be monitored? Setting up of Steering Group / Monitoring Group? Internal reporting? Ø Think about indicators!! Ø HR Strategy document / Action Plan must be published in English on institutional website in visible/relevant location
  6. 6. Application for Acknowledgement by the Commission (Step 3/5) Ø Creation of special page advisable (links to related institutional / national initiatives, to C&C document, EURAXESS Rights website, etc.) => post there regular updates / success notices /related press releases Ø No need to publish the full gap analysis! Ø Inform Commission that documents have been published (provide link(s)) Ø Commission will assess compliance with process (panel of three assessors), provide feedback and award the HR Excellence badge if assessment positive=>Resubmission is possible
  7. 7. Award to be used exclusively by institutions that have received the acknowledgement
  8. 8. Commission acknowledgement – why bother? No obligation to ask for the acknowledgement, but: • Acknowledgement provides added visibility: Ø listing on the EURAXESS Rights website; Ø exclusive right to use the Award on institutional website, promotional material…. use of logo on EURAXESS Jobs; • Acknowledgement adds credibility – internally and externally, towards researchers, national authorities, funders etc.. • Acknowledgement means becoming part of a growing group of institutions, many of very high international standing, adding to your institution’s status. • Acknowledgement also means – in the context of H2020 Art 32 MGA – you are proactive and take specific steps to address conflicts between your policies and practices and the principles set out in the Charter and Code of Conduct.
  9. 9. Implementation phase and Self-assessment (4/5) Ø Based on continuous improvement (=> important role for your internal Steering Group / Monitoring Group!) Ø Internal and external communication crucial Ø Regularly/at the latest 2 years after acknowledgement: Self-assessment of progress made (=> use indicators defined in step 2) Ø Should preferably be embedded in internal, existing Quality Assurance mechanisms Ø Update action plan (and overall approach if necessary) and publish update Ø Short notification to Commission (1 page), longer only if major difficulties encountered or major adjustments
  10. 10. External assessment and renewal of acknowledgement (5/5) Ø At least every 4 years: preparation of a short report Ø Demonstrate progress made towards the objectives of HR Strategy for Researchers developed and fulfilment of Action Plan Ø Report evaluated by panel of external reviewers => now external assessment organized by Deloitte based on peer review / site visits. Ø Renewal or withdrawal of acknowledgement /HR Award
  11. 11. Key success factors (1/2) Ø Firmly integrate HR Strategy process in overall institutional strategy and vision – not a separate process! Ø Communication with all parties involved is essential, support from top management is indispensable. Ø Although the process is as light as possible, it does require the allocation of dedicated resources. Ø Institutional cross-cutting working group could be very helpful to get buy-in from all departments involved. Ø Use staff survey, workshops / focus groups or similar to find out more about the views of both junior and senior researchers.
  12. 12. Key success factors (2/2) Ø You are not alone! Talk to your peers to see how they do/did it. Ø Template and FAQs available on EURAXESS Rights – helpful to get initial overview and understand legal / institutional constraints. Ø Relevant umbrella organisations (Rectors Conferences etc.) can facilitate the coordination of institutional efforts at national or regional level (e.g. analysis of legal framework for all institutions governed by it) Ø Remember that small changes can have a huge impact.
  13. 13. “HR Strategy Group”: exploiting synergies and learning from each other • 300 organisations participating in 4 cohorts of the HR Strategy Group. • 261 'HR Excellence in Research' awarded so far. • 95 UK institutions
