During March 2021, with the participation of members of the Management and Project (implementation) team, an internal survey was prepared and conducted at RILSA that focused exclusively on the principles of, and topics surrounding, the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.

The survey was conducted from 23 February 2021 to 8 March 2021 via an anonymous online questionnaire and drew responses from 37.5% of the approached respondents.

The evaluation of the survey results (including the identification of topics for further consideration, recommendations concerning the implementation of the strategy at RILSA and the future application of the results of the documentation produced in the initial phase of the HRS4R strategy) is available on the intranet.

 

February 2021

The Research Institute of Labour and Social Affairs, a public research institution, (RILSA) started the implementation of the initial phase of the HRS4R strategy (Human Resources Strategy for Researchers in the EU) and as a part of it began work on GAP analysis. This happened after 21st December 2020 when the European Commission approved of the RILSA "Declaration of Commitment to the Adoption of a Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers and a European Charter for Researchers".

During the months of January and February 2021, the processed and gradually revised introductory texts of the GAP analysis were discussed with the active participation of the members of the Management and Project (implementation) team and at the same time an internal survey (in the form of a questionnaire survey) was prepared for implementation at the RILSA.

The aim of the survey is to obtain ideas for the systematic improvement of science and research and care for human resources in the RILSA in terms of HR Award topics within the HRS4R strategy. The survey will be carried out anonymously and will take place from 23rd February 2021 to 3rd March 2021 via an online questionnaire. The results of the survey will be processed in the second half of March 2021.

year 2020

December 2020

The Research Institute for Labour and Social Affairs (RILSA/VÚPSV) public research institution, in order to obtain this award and as part of the introduction of its strategic management system, including a strategic human resources management system, has subscribed to the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.

 

Registration for the award was announced officially via a letter sent by PhDr. David Michalík, Ph.D., DBA, the acting managing director of RILSA, to the European Commission, dated 14 December 2020, in accordance with the terms and conditions governing the obtaining of the “HR Award for researchers.”

 

RILSA’s aim, as identified in the definition of the “HR Award for RILSA 2020” internal project, is to obtain the HR AWARD certificate, which is awarded by the European Commission to those research institutions that implement the HRS4R (Human Resources Strategy for Researchers) strategy based on strictly-defined principles.

The implementation of HRS4R principles began at RILSA with a kick-off meeting held on 3 December 2020 with the participation of members of the Management and Project Teams.


The benefits of HRS4R implementation for RILSA and its researchers

The implementation of HRS4R principles is aimed at providing support for the development of the capacities, knowledge and skills of RILSA staff focusing on strategic R&D management and, subsequently, the introduction of a strategic R&D management system at RILSA which will be fully in line with the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.

 

The fulfilment of the aim of obtaining the “HR Award for researchers” will benefit RILSA’s staff as follows:

  • the enhancement of the prestige of working for RILSA, including increasing the attractiveness of RILSA for researchers from both home and abroad,
  • the potential to obtain financial bonuses for research purposes from both European and domestic research support programmes (TA ČR, HORIZON 2020, etc.),
  • The enhancement of the quality of human resources provision by improving conditions for a more attractive career in research and contributing to the development of principles and procedures for the assessment and motivation of researchers.

The global benefit for RILSA and its employees will comprise the continuous improvement of the organisational culture with the contribution of the implementation of the principles and tools set out in RILSA internal strategic human resources management documentation.

The outputs of the project (especially from the HRS4R Action Plan) will be published on an ongoing basis according to the “HR Award for RILSA 2020” project schedule.
