Es­to­nia seeks to im­prove rep­u­ta­tion of state as em­ployer

Baltic News Network - - News -

As the Es­to­nian Min­istry of Fi­nance wishes to boost the rep­u­ta­tion and brand of the Baltic coun­try’s pub­lic sec­tor, it has an­nounced a pro­cure­ment ten­der aimed at pre­par­ing an ac­tion plan for reach­ing these goals.

Es­to­nian pub­lic broad­caster ERR re­ported on Tues­day, Au­gust 15, cit­ing the Es­to­nian Min­istry of Fi­nance that the state is find­ing it in­creas­ingly dif­fi­cult to com­pete with the pri­vate sec­tor in of­fer­ing com­pet­i­tive salaries to prospec­tive em­ploy­ees, as the state is un­able to dom­i­nate the salary mar­ket.

«Ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey on the move­ment of free job po­si­tions and work­force, the work­ing-age pop­u­la­tion will de­crease by ap­prox­i­mately 6,400 peo­ple an­nu­ally in the next few years. This means that com­pe­ti­tion for re­cruit­ing the best em­ploy­ees will con­tinue to in­crease,» ex­plained the min­istry’s Di­rec­tor of the Depart­ment of Pub­lic Ad­min­is­tra­tion and Pub­lic Ser­vice Marlen Piskunov.

The ob­jec­tive of the pro­cure­ment ten­der’s ac­tion plan will be to in­ten­tion­ally work on and boost the rep­u­ta­tion of the state as an em­ployer and pro­mote the state as an at­trac­tive em­ployer to po­ten­tial em­ploy­ees.
