The key issues of RH action plan concern career support (including contract staff), managing motivation and quality of life at work, international attractiveness, managing work community diversity, and prevention of occupational risks.
INRAE has been committed to a voluntary approach for several years. The institute is actively involved in the inclusion of disabled people and is currently developing an overall policy on the issue in order to support employees throughout their careers (recruitment, job integration, and stability).
As one of the leading agricultural research organisations in Europe, INRAE counts the construction of the European Research Area and improving its attractiveness to young researchers among its top priorities. INRAE was the first French research organisation to receive the “HR Excellence in Research” label awarded by the European Commission.
In terms of gender equality and the fight against discrimination, INRAE is committed to the double Equality-Diversity accreditation under what is known as the Label Alliance. This is important to us at both the individual and collective levels, as this approach pursues our objectives of sharing values of welcome, integration, attractiveness and efficiency within our working community.
Within INRAE, sustainable development activities are attached to the HR Division which is responsible for producing the Institute’s sustainable development and social responsibility policies. These policies are deployed in Research Centres under the responsibility of their Presidents, who benefit from the support of Sustainable Development Policy Officers.
