One of the requirements for the accreditation HRS4R is the developing of a plan of action to improve the alignment of policies and actions in human resources of the institution with the 40 principles contained in the Charter and the European Code. IDIBELL adopted its action plan last December.

IDIBELL aims to recognize its researchers and workers and researchers from partner institutions Campus Bellvitge: Catalan Institute of Oncology, University Hospital of Bellvitge, Viladecans Hospital and University of Barcelona, as well as other staff as essential contributors to the IDIBELL success by offering a supportive, encouraging and challenging working environment that promotes equal opportunities, ethical integrity and work-life balance.

On August 1st 2013 IDIBELL joined the European Charter and Code and a process was initiated to design an action plan that would improve the alignment of policies and actions in human resources of the institution with the 40 principles in these documents.

During the months of May and June 2014 an internal analysis of the institution was performed by staff surveys IDIBELL and sectoral meetings. Once the diagnosis was done, it was created a working group consisting of representatives of the different labor groups that make up the IDIBELL to draft the HRS4R Action Plan 2015-2018.
