Aspects of Human Resource Development in Lithuanian Municipalities

Rūta Dačiulytė


This article analyses problematic aspects of human resource development in municipalities and discusses the concept of human resource development, the model of a learning organisation and their interrelation. Models of employee professional development and of human resource development in municipalities are analysed. The results of the research show that employee professional development in Lithuanian municipalities is related to qualification furthering outside the organisation rather than in-service training and learning at the workplace. Poor integration of education into municipality’s work environment leads to unfavourable conditions for the development of employees’ competence. In pursuit of qualitative changes, it is advisable to gradually create an enabling environment for learning and training in municipalities and adapt the model of human resource development.
