Minister of Personnel Management

Thank you for visiting the Ministry of Personnel Management (MPM) homepage.

As the agency in overall charge of the public human resources management (HRM) for the central government of the Republic of Korea, the Ministry of Personnel Management (MPM) is committed to establishing the public HRM system grounded in "Equal Opportunity, Fair Process, and Just Results" with the following key objectives for HRM innovation: (1) the establishment of fairer and more transparent HRM systems and ethical guidelines for public servants to regain the people's trust; (2) the cultivation of an innovative organizational culture that promotes vibrant working environments and respects citizens and diversity; (3) the development of an advanced administration that is ready for the future, based on human resources development (HRD) including the development of expertise and competencies of civil servants; and (4) the enhancement of overall performance and global competitiveness in the government service along with high public service motivation and better working conditions for public servants.

Our Ministry will continue to promote integrated HRM innovation in line with the overall government innovation framework for the realization of current administration's vision: "a Nation of the People, a Republic of Korea of Justice." Furthermore, we will try to make an efficient and effective civil service trusted by the people and a government which is owned by the people by understanding and fulfilling the people's needs and expectations and humbly listening to the voices of the citizens as well as civil servants. Please reach out to us with any questions and/or suggestions for the development of public HRM and HRD. Once again, we thank you for your interest, concern, and support.
