Amid the growing issue of a shortage of national public servants, a meeting was held for the first time among experts to discuss countermeasures, and Governor Kawamoto of the National Personnel Authority stated, "We want to take bold efforts without sanctuary," and requested that concrete measures be considered to secure and develop human resources in line with the times.
The National Personnel Authority newly established the Personnel Administration Advisory Council, consisting of academic experts and executives of private companies, and held its first meeting on May 10 in response to the fact that the number of people who want to become so-called "career bureaucrats" who want to become career-track national civil servants is decreasing, and the number of people who leave their jobs after less than 25 years is increasing.
In his speech, Governor Kawamoto of the National Personnel Authority stated, "As social and international situations change at an accelerated pace, I would like to boldly and squarely tackle how national public servants can continue to fulfill their missions," and requested that the government consider specific measures to secure and develop human resources in line with the times.
meeting, it was pointed out that it is necessary to raise the salary level and have a system to treat people according to their ability and performance, and
that they should consider allocating work according to their wishes without being bound by convention.
The Advisory Council will meet once a month and compile a final report by autumn next year.
