Professional development of civil servants has a number of features, in particular, being a dynamic and continuous process promoting personal development in the system of interrelated professionally significant types of activity. The performance of public administration is measured mainly against professional competency of civil servants. A low level of expertise and professional skills of employees will entail low-quality managerial decisions that may adversely affect the quality of management in the country, industry, region, municipality. In modern rapidly changing scenarios, effective public administration primarily calls for flexible, highly skilled professionals including civil servants. The personnel in the civil sector is hired based on professional merit, business qualities, professional skills, and acquired competencies. Promoting professional competency of civil servants requires further professional education. The quality and efficiency of managerial decision-making depends on the quality of further education received by employees. Since the early 2000s, there have been a series of activities to reform and improve the state civil service in the Russian Federation. The federal program provides for effective personnel technologies integrated in the civil service and modern methods of personnel work, which should be aimed at improving professional competences of civil servants. In this regard, studying professional development of civil servants is currently acquiring particular relevance.
