SGHRM report on Open, Transparent and Merit-based Recruitment


The working group of the Steering Group of Human Resources Management (SGHRM) has now finalised its report on Open, Transparent and Merit-based Recruitment (OTM-R) and the adherent checklist for institutions. This is not an alone-standing activity/action or initiative, OTM-R will be fully embedded into the ‘strengthened’ HRS4R procedure which will be launched by 2016.

Institutions already involved in the HRS4R implementation process now have the opportunity to explore and invest in the implementation of the OTM-R (using the checklist for institutions), which will allow them to already prepare such issues when transiting towards the ‘strengthened’ procedure.

OTM-R ensures that the best person for the job is recruited, guarantees equal opportunities and access for all, facilitates developing an international portfolio (cooperation, competition, mobility) and makes research careers more attractive.

OTM-R brings benefits to researchers, institutions and the wider research system. More specifically, OTM-R makes research careers more attractive, ensures equal opportunities for all candidates and facilitates mobility. Overall, it will contribute to an increase in the cost-effectiveness of investments in research!
