Demand for employees
According to the Committee for Labour, Employment and Social Protection of Minsk’s City Executive Committee, in over 20 years of operation, more than 500,000 people have applied to Minsk’s employment service for assistance. Over half were found jobs with help from the authorities.
In these two decades, over 60,000 unemployed people were given professional training or retraining, with course lists ever expanded to reflect the demands of the labour market. Vocational training was given to over 70 percent of the unemployed who applied for assistance.
