The human resource crisis in public institutions is an acute problem.

First of all, this crisis is manifested in the large number of vacant positions.

For example, the vacancy rate in the President’s Office is 39%, in the Investment Agency – 50%, in the Ministry of Economic Development and Digitalization – more than 25%.

One of the main causes of this crisis is insufficient, uncompetitive and unfair salary levels.

Recruitment and retention of qualified staff – especially those with sufficient public service experience and institutional memory – is a challenge that will also affect the speed of EU accession negotiations.

The pursuit of economic growth should remain the focus of the authorities to ensure competitive and sustainable wage levels.
