  • Involvement of ministries responsible for civil service and agencies for civil service at the state level, in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republika Srpska and Brčko District in the gradual development and implementation of the analysis and monitoring of human resources in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

During the workshops, the experiences of three EU member states, Luxembourg, Portugal and Belgium, one country of the Western Balkans, Montenegro, as well as the experiences of the representatives of the Agencies for Civil Service/Administration of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republika Srpska and the Human Resources Subdivision of the Brčko District of Bosnia and Herzegovina were presented.

Adequate collection and analysis of data on human resources in the civil service is necessary for the purpose of strategic planning and improvement of human resources, but also for the purpose of securing data needed in the process of European integration. At this workshop the first steps towards the further development of the human resources monitoring system in Bosnia and Herzegovina were taken.
