Ulyanovsk Region Opens an Improved Personnel Center "Work in Russia"

On 28 January, Governor Aleksey Russkikh participated in the opening ceremony of the region's first upgraded employment center.

He said, “The regional Government pays particular attention to the labour market situation. Salaries must be increased in various industries. A breakthrough in personnel management is possible only if we combine efforts of the state, business and entrepreneur associations. The regional commission's work plan for the first half of 2022 has been approved at my request, and specific mechanisms and solutions will be developed to address the issue with salaries. We should pay particular attention to graduates of our schools and universities as it is important to help young specialists with employment in a comprehensive and continuous way. There is also a pressuring issue of organizing interactions between the regional employment service, graduates and potential employers. The new branch of the Ulyanovsk region's personnel center will play an important role in this sphere.”

Denis Vasiliev, Deputy Head of the Federal Service for Labor and Employment, and Andrey Repnikov, Director of the Competence Center for Employment of the All-Russian Research Institute of Labor of the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Russian Federation, made a welcoming speech via a video conference. The head of the region thanked the guests for their attention to the issues of labor market in the Ulyanovsk region, which are always among the most concerning ones for the population.

The Personnel Center was upgraded as part of the federal project "Employment Support" (implemented under the national project "Demography"). The building was completely re-equipped to provide accessibility for people with disabilities, and employees were retrained. The new service standard involves a client-oriented approach. Recruitment consultants will work with applicants until they get a job successfully. Visitors interested in entrepreneurship will be assisted in opening their own business.

“Thanks to the modernized and renovated building, employees will be able to do their work better, while customers will receive services and address their personnel management and career-related issues in more comfortable conditions. In fact, by restructuring employment centers, we move from labor exchange to personnel centers that solve employment issues as a whole both for citizens and employers,” said Egor Ivanov, Head of the Agency for Human Potential and Labor Force Development of Ulyanovsk Region.

It is also planned to commission a modernized office of the employment service in Karsunsky District by the end of 2022.
