The Championship framed the business program events. The platform gathered together politicians, researchers, industrial partners, heads of educational establishments and representatives of development institutions to discuss economic and technological trends, issues of development of the professional training systems and labor market transformation. Discussions were focused at global challenges and macro-regional issues of staff supplies to the future economy. The national track of the business program was organized for the first time in the history of the movement. Leaders of changes were selected and teams for implementing development projects of the national education eco-system were composed on the basis of competition. Winners of the competitive selection acquired access to the best world practices and expertise as well as the possibility to visit WorldSkills Conference 2019. In the framework of the national track, the additional working format was set up. It allowed the participants to focus on working on the development projects and implementation of the best world practices in the national training system.
“The staff gap” globally studied jointly by BCG, ROSATOM and WorldSkills Russia became the main topic of the session “Professional Development 2030”. The event participants shared best solutions to how to work with the personnel which allow for the smooth transition of a country to the economy of the future. HR Director of ROSATOM Tatiana Terentieva told about experience and plans of ROSATOM in that respect. The session “Thinking of the Green Economy: What Skills Needed” discussed the staff development for ensuring sustainable production and systemic overcoming of environmental challenges. Head of International Business Department of ROSATOM Boris Ageev stressed that even before the lean attitudes to the environment had become an important topic of the international agenda and the mere notion of “green skills” appeared ROSATOM determined for itself the fundamental principles of work: environmental responsibility and man-serving behavior.
ROSATOM also arranged for “a business program” for juniors – TeenPower by Rosatom. It gave youth participants of the Championship a possibility to take part in workshops on trade selection and, on the whole, search of their own way, to speak in the “free mike” zone in TED-conferences format, attend lectures, take part in shooting a youth film and many other activities aimed at disclosing youth gifts. The TeenPower by Rosatom became the center of attraction for all active and inquisitive children and youth: over four days more than 30 young lectors of 12 to 17 years old from Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Kazan, Ufa delivered 40 lectures and master classes. The TeenPower project has materialized the man-serving behavior of ROSATOM in working with the future staff aiming at disclosure of each individual potential.
