MINSK, 24 May (BelTA) – The youth policy needs individual approach and new forms of work, Head of the Belarus President Administration Igor Sergeyenko said at a regular meeting of the Minsk Oblast Executive Committee, BelTA informs citing the press service of the Minsk Oblast Executive Committee.
The participants of the meeting reviewed progress in implementing the government youth policy and measures to encourage young professionals to stay in Minsk Oblast, as well as the preparation of educational institutions of Minsk Oblast for the 2022-2023 academic year.
Addressing the meeting participants Head of the Belarus President Administration Igor Sergeyenko said: “Young people of today do not want to stand in line, they want to get everything at once, their ambitions are very big. As opinion polls show, young people prioritize self-fulfillment over money,” Igor Sergeyenko said.
He raised the problem of human resources in important sectors of the economy, including agriculture, manufacturing industry, healthcare and other areas. “Just think about it, up to 50% of young people working in these sectors leave for the services sector. At the same time, a factory worker cannot retire, since there is no one to replace him/her. Therefore, not only the education system should deal with career guidance issues. Employers should not only know personnel numbers. They should be attentive to young specialists at all stages of their career, to talk, to show interest, to help address arising problems. Each employer should think how to replace experienced workers,” Igor Sergeyenko said.
According to him, the most important factor in personnel retainment in the regions is the provision of accommodation. A lot is being done in this field in the country as a whole and in Minsk Oblast in particular. Igor Sergeyenko also noted that enterprises and organizations can support young workers with additional payments and bonuses. He emphasized the importance of coordinated work of the local authorities, attention to young employees on the part of employers, a comprehensive individual approach, new forms of work with no formalism. All this will ensure the smooth implementation of the youth policy.
