The Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia will support the replication of the best practices for assessing staff at the leading industrial enterprises of the country according to WorldSkills international standards. The editorial staff of received this information from Svetlana Chupsheva, General Director of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI), after her meeting with Denis Manturov, Minister of Industry and Trade, held on November 13 in Moscow.

“We discussed the possibility of creating social and personnel elevators for employees of leading industrial enterprises. The Ministry of Industry and Trade will help us to replicate the best practices of implementing WorldSkills international standards in the staff assessment,” Svetlana Chupsheva said.

She pointed to the experience of Rosatom as a successful example, which for several years has been using Worldskills Hi-Tech Championship in Yekaterinburg as a platform for developing new competencies and upgrading the skills of workers and engineering personnel.

The head of the ASI called the demonstration exam an effective tool for including young employees in production activities. “When the employer participates directly in the assessment of graduates, he has the opportunity to set the necessary requirements for staff at an early stage. This significantly reduces the period of adaptation of young employees at production site and brings their competencies closer to the real needs of the enterprise,” explained Svetlana Chupsheva.

Another area of ​​cooperation between the ASI and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia is shaping the future of Russian industry, taking into account the implementation of the Digital Economy state program.

“Denis Valentinovich [Manturov] and I discussed the image of Russian industry which will be presented to foreign partners at World Championship in Kazan in 2019. In particular, this concerns the formation of a set of competencies - FutureSkills, which includes laser technologies, digital linguistics, industrial Internet of things, development of mobile applications, AR/VR technologies and blockchain,” said Svetlana Chupsheva.

The General Director of the ASI also noted that the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade had supported the idea of ​​replicating the industrial growth staff standard in all 85 regions of Russia.

“The Ministry participated in the development of this standard and the determination of a list of pilot regions for its implementation. A survey of 1 300 employers from 85 regions was conducted in October 2017, and it showed that many industrial enterprises are going to get involved in its implementation. Together with the Ministry of Industry and Trade we are ready to ensure the replication of the staff standard throughout the country,” said Svetlana Chupsheva.


WorldSkills Competition will take place in Kazan in 2019. This right was obtained by Russia on the basis of voting at the General Assembly of WorldSkills International in 2015 in São Paulo (Brazil).
