On November 9, 2020 The Cyprus Institute (CyI) received the “HR Excellence in Research” award. This award was established by the European Commission to acknowledge academic and research organizations for their commitment to continuously improve their human resource policies in line with the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.
This award is considered as a significant milestone for CyI, which will take the Institute even further in achieving its mission and will contribute to the enhancement of a prosperous working environment for all its staff, students, researchers and faculty of all ranks.
The process for the assessment included the submission of a Gap Analysis of the Institute’s practices in relation to the 40 principles of the European Charter and Code, a review of the Institute’s Recruitment & Staffing processes (OTM-R) and the development of the Institute’s HR Strategy and HRS4R Action plan for the next two years. The process will be ongoing with a long-term commitment to continuously improving our practices based on the standards set by the European Commission.
From now on, The Cyprus Institute will be listed on the EURAXESS portal under the header of “HR Acknowledged Institutions”.More information about the process followed and the award can be found at the Institute’s Human Resources Strategy for Researchers.
