On December 17, 2019 YouControl and NGO “People of Action” signed a memorandum of cooperation. The parties will cooperate, first of all, within the framework of the training project “Personnel Reserve of Ukraine” initiated by “People of Action”.
“Personnel Reserve of Ukraine” aims at finding and properly training people who strive to fulfill their potential in the development of our country. However checking will be relevant in order to make sure that candidates for civil servants are truly decent and reliable. Thus YouControl provided the NGO with access to its analytical system. This will help collect necessary information about applicants, identify their weak points or vice versa – to confirm their good reputation.
As “Personnel Reserve of Ukraine” involves training of candidates, it will also attract YouControl coaches. They will hold workshops, lectures for program listeners in both online and offline formats.
“Such cooperation will allow to improve the quality of the selection of candidates for civil service. YouControl will help find information about a candidate from open sources. The system offers unique analytics, convenient tools that will facilitate the transparent selection of candidates for the competition and the formation of a reputational component not only of a candidate, but of the civil service as a whole,” Oleksandr Opanasenko, the Head of NGO “People of Action”, said.
“When the issue is civil service, checking has to be as thorough as possible. Repeated situations when people related to reputational or financial scandals are appointed to civil service cause deliberate harm to the state and compromise civil servants’ authority in general. Therefore, we hope that due to the use of YouControl the number of such problems will be as small as possible,” Nataliia Chornohub, the GR-manager of YouControl, said.
Let us remind you that YouControl also cooperates with the Ukrainian School of Government, which provides training for representatives of the state authorities and helps them improve their qualification.
