UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. For UNDP, creating equal opportunities for women and men is critical for equitable, sustainable development and prosperity. Hence, gender equality is in core of the UNDP mandate globally and nationally.
Specifically, UNDP “Gender Equality in Public Administration of Armenia” (GEPAA) Project is committed to supporting the Government of Armenia in its efforts to establish a modern, transparent, citizen-centric and gender-responsive public administration system. With the overall contributing goal to SDG 5 and SDG16, GEPAA has been actively involved in setting the baseline for further targeted interventions through robust research initiatives.
In particular, solid basis for further modernization of the public administration (PA) system in Armenia has been ensured through impressive research efforts targeting, among others, societal, structural, legal and procedural aspects towards a more gender-sensitive and gender-responsive governance system.
A comprehensive legal review of the civil service legislation was carried out through gender prism, and amendments to 6 normative acts were suggested and presented to the attention of the Civil Service Office (CSO). Two more research – on public perception of roles of men and women in the public sector and on students’ aspiration to join the public sector – helped to reveal several issues of concern and propose the list of recommendations and possible solutions.
In shaping project implementation course, GEPAA aligns its activities to the core strategic documents in the public administration field, among others. One of them, the OECD SIGMA Principles of Public Administration underline the professionalism of the public service as one of the key requirements for HRM, which is ensured by good managerial standards and HRM practices. According to the SIGMA Baseline Measurement Report, the general turnover in Armenian PA system has been quite high (around 26% in 2016 and 2017). Now when the new 2018 Civil Service Legislation (CSL) has improved many aspects of organization of recruitment, it is critical to conduct early proper monitoring and evaluation of the staff turnover within the civil service, which will allow for better understanding of the purposes, causes and reasons of the turnover. It will also help to adjust the recruitment policy within the public sector in order to attract and retain talent to the public sector.
Thus, GEPAA is currently seeking a qualified Human Resources expert, who will assist the project in its efforts to modernize the system of monitoring of staff turnover within the public sector, namely civil service, through a technically enhanced, top-notch HRM approaches and techniques and make timely and targeted recommendations on improvement of HRM practices and particularly recruitment policies. This assistance is quite timely considering the introduction of the new Human Resources Management Information System (HRMIS), which will serve as a unified platform for the human resources management within the civil service.
