INP again honoured with HR Excellence in Research Award
Greifswald, 05 June 2023
The Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (INP) has received the "HR Excellence in Research Award" for the second time. The seal of quality of the European Union certifies that the German research institute is committed to providing the best possible working conditions for scientists. Around 700 research institutions across Europe bear this award, but only 25 in Germany so far.
Top-level research is only possible with motivated employees. INP therefore wants to offer its employees the best possible working conditions and plenty of room for personal development. To achieve this goal, INP implements the "European Charter for Researchers" adopted by the European Commission in 2005 and the associated "Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers". The renewed award of the HR Excellence in Research Award is proof of the successful implementation of the diverse guidelines.
"We are competing internationally for talent and want to attract the best researchers to our institute. With the HR Excellence in Research Award, we can prove that we adhere to the strict guidelines of the European Union for the best possible working conditions in research," explains Dr. Hans Sawade, Head of Management Support at INP.
The HR Excellence in Research programme involves an analysis of various topics and the creation and implementation of action plans. The spectrum ranges from processes in human resources management and working conditions to training measures and career planning.
"Participation in the HR Excellence in Research programme has motivated us to examine and optimise our entire processes and offers for employees. For example, we have significantly streamlined our application process and now offer regular training on topics such as personnel management or research ethics. Through the involvement of our employees and the feedback from the jury, we have been able to improve significantly in recent years," comments Dr. Christine Zädow, Equal Opportunities Officer at INP.
