HR Excellence in Research

On the 31st of March 2015 the Girona Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBGI) received the "HR Excellence in Research Award". This award and its logo reflect the IDIBGI’s commitment to continously improve its human resources policies and practices in line with the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (Charter & Code),

The Charter and Code is addressed to researchers as well as to employers and funders in both the public and private sectors. They are key elements in the European Union's policy to make research an attractive career, which is a vital feature of its strategy to stimulate economic and employment growth.

The Girona Biomedical Research Institute endorsed the Charter and Code in May 2011, and joined the Fourth Cohort of the Institutional Human Resources Strategy Group in 2012, attending the Kick-off meeting of the group project in Brussels. Thereon the IDIBGI started implementing their own Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R).

 

Equality Plan

The Girona Institute of Biomedical Research has anEquality Plan since 2014. In 2018 it was renewed to continue working against gender discrimination and guarantee maximum equality throughout the entire institution.

The Equality Committee periodically monitors the Plan of actions that follows from the Equality Plan, while collecting proposals and debating on aspects relevant to guaranteeing optimal working conditions, access, occupational health, reconciliation with family personal, etc.

Among other lines of action, emphasis is placed on training, sensitization, and awareness, not only for the members of the Equality Committee but on the whole research staff. However, it is important to have tools and protocols planned to prevent, combat and act in the face of possible situations of gender discrimination or violence.
