The work schedule for obtaining the HR Award

Work to obtain the HR Award began at the Faculty of Social Studies in the autumn of 2019 with the presentation of the individual principles of the Charter and the Code at meetings of Faculty Management and Dean’s Council.

Gradually, all 40 principles were presented according to the 4 areas of the Charter and the Code:
1) Ethical and Professional Aspects
2) Recruitment and Selection
3) Working Conditions and Social Security
4) Training and Development

Subsequently, candidates were addressed in all research positions R1-R4, from individual departments and institutes, who form the Working Group HR Award. At the same time, the Steering Committee HR Award was set up to oversee the whole process, comment on, and support the Working Group. The Steering Committee is the body that undertakes to implement the required Initial Action Plan Design within 24 months. A third body, the Project Working Group HR Award, consists of administrative staff who oversee formal matters within the OP RDE II project and comment on issues and principles that are common to all employees of the FSS, e.g. working conditions, recruitment of workers. The project team ensures the implementation of the HR Award in synergy with the project
