Gazprom Neft has, for the second year running, made its selection for the winner of “New Approaches” nomination in this year’s “HR Brand” awards, made every year by personnel group HeadHunter for the best HR project reflecting a new approach to HR issues.

Vladislav Pozdyshev, Head of HR, Gazprom Neft, commented:
«The success of any business depends, first and foremost, on the team — on how you work with people, how you engage them in the life of the company, what HR technologies you use. In our nomination we are committed to finding that project in which the use of non-standard and interesting HR management methodologies and techniques has delivered a genuinely positive impact on the business. Last year’s winner was AgroTerra, for its development of a new profession — that of the "agro-scout", positioned right at the interface of a range of professions and meeting the needs of modern agriculture. This year we recognised a project that has allowed the implementation of an effective system for the professional development and training of employees in key shop-floor roles in a retail network. We are delighted that the number of contenders for the ‘New Approaches’ award — as well as the quality of the projects implemented — is increasing.»
