Interregional staffing forum “Development of staffing potential: regional aspect” is held in Ufa and the main goal of this two-day action is formation of a site for interaction and experience exchange between authority, heads of staffing agencies and enterprises, education and scientific institutions. Representatives of authority, enterprises, business community and some Russian regions are taking part in it. The President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov has spoken before the participants.

The President RB has mentioned in his short speech that in the course of 20 years one economic system is transformed into another one and this process is running on vast territories.

“The process faces many difficulties, sometimes we make mistakes, searching for the right solutions, and staffing policy is one of the main themes, which is present in agenda of all these processes. We won’t be able to do anything without specialists, so the rise of efficiency of managerial staff and formation of the corps of highly qualified specialists becomes the theme N1. Bashkortostan experiences through the stage of its new development. We conduct up-to-date policy, becoming more open for investors and for all those, who would like to work with us. We welcome the specialists, arriving here. Big companies begin construction of new enterprises and I hope these enterprises will work for the good of the republic and the country for many years. We want to look forward for the period of at least 25 years”.

“We make comfortable conditions for investors, trying to remove administrative barriers, where it is possible” – the President RB reported – “Now we can say that executive power bodies build positive relations with investors but it is more difficult to choose people, who will work at these enterprises: we have big universities, training good specialists. But the rest is not as good as we’d like it to be and in this connection we turn our attention to e-education. We intend to establish a state budget institution in 2013, which will be busy only with electronic education in the Republic. Besides, Bashkir Electronic University will be established too for retraining of specialists and rise of their qualifications”.

According to Rustem Khamitov attraction and training of young specialists is one of the key problems for today.

“It’s a problem for us to attract the best school-leavers” – he said – “Almost a half of them leave the Republic to get education in other regions, including Moscow institutes. We still fail to stop this outflow but we have to. We have to raise competitive ability of our institutes”.

Plenary part of the forum “Requests of state and business to HR and offered solution” is held in Ufa Congress-Hall now. Round-table discussions are planned for the second half of the day. Problems of interaction of state and business in the process of staffing potential formation will be discussed there.

On December 5 the forum will continue working in the format of master-classes and concrete proposals, aimed at efficient labor relations, will become its total.
