United Nations Development Programme in Kazakhstan organized a training on the best modern principles and practices in the field of human resource management on April 11-12, 2019, in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan. This training was a part of a joint project with the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Kazakhstan to improve the processes of coordination and consultation, as well as interaction between state bodies in the field of law making.
The training was attended by the members and staff of the High Judicial Council of the Republic of Kazakhstan, judges of the Supreme Court, regional and city courts, lawyers as well as employees of the Qualification Commission at the Council, including representatives of the Academy of Justice under the Supreme Court, the Republican Notarial Chamber, and the Kazakhstan Institute for Strategic Studies under the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
During the training, conducted by Korn Ferry (Hay Group), participants learned about contemporary human resource management principles and practices for the selection, recruitment, and promotion of judges. The issues of career development of judges and features of the admission qualification examination were also discussed. The training was practice-oriented, which would undoubtedly allow participants to use received knowledge and skills in their work.
Mr. Donakov Talgat, the Chairman of the High Judicial Council, in the introductory part of the training noted the significance of the training conducted in the context of the renewal of the Council’s composition held in February this year, as well as the upcoming work on the selection of candidates for judges, which will begin in the second half of April. In addition, he noted the high level of organization of the training and thanked UNDP in Kazakhstan for the opportunity to share knowledge with experts from a leading global company in the field of human resources management.
This project is aimed at implementing the Sustainable Development Goal #16: Peace, justice and strong institutions, in particular to ensure equal access to justice and effective judicial system in Kazakhstan.
