Human Resources Day in Russia (12/10)

Every year on October 12, Russia celebrates the Day of the Personnel Worker - an unofficial professional holiday for employees of the personnel departments of Russian enterprises, firms and organizations.

On this day in 1918, by decision of the People's Commissariat of Justice, the "Instruction on the organization of the Soviet workers' and peasants' militia" was adopted and the first personnel apparatus of the internal affairs bodies was created.

For the first time, the tradition of celebrating a professional holiday - the Day of a Personnel Worker - appeared precisely in the personnel services of the internal affairs bodies. Gradually, it was instilled in other enterprises, along with employees of the personnel departments of the Internal Affairs Department who were transferred to them.
