HR Excellence in Research label

The European Human Resources Strategy for Research (HRS4R)

Since 2005, the CNRS has been committed to a continuous improvement process aimed at taking greater account of the recommendations of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.

CNRS was awarded the "HR Excellence in Research" label by the European Commission on February 10, 2017, enabling it to showcase its working environment and the quality of its human resources management.

Revised action plan (2019-2021)

As part of its HRS4R action plan (2017-2020), CNRS has made commitments in five priority areas: ethics and scientific integrity, recruitment, quality of working life (QWL), non-discrimination and professional development.

Two years after being awarded the "HR Excellence in Research" label, the interim evaluation conducted by the HRS4R Steering Committee highlighted the fact that the vast majority of the actions planned for 2017 and 2018 had been carried out, and some had even been enhanced.

The revised action plan (PDF format) includes the actions of the initial plan, enriched with 15 new actions in support of the main strategic axes of the company's policy.

HRS4R label renewal (2022-2024)

The year 2023 marks the renewal of the HRS4R label for CNRS. With this in mind, an assessment of the previous period's actions has been drawn up, and a new action plan for all CNRS staff has been proposed to the European Commission for the next three years.
