Five Gazprom Neft employees among the winners at this year’s “Leaders of Russia” competition

The 2018–2019 “Leaders of Russia” competition has seen 3,286 registrations from Gazprom Neft employees — a three-fold increase on last year. Fifteen company employees have reached the final, with five of these being winners. Four projects also made the Top-40 corporate social responsibility (CSR) projects.

The company is now a partner to the competition, and has put forward a number of proposals on its development — a suggestion that participants implement CSR projects, for example, forming the basis for the semi-final “Heart of a Leader” challenge. Another suggestion from the company saw participants this year required to complete a biographical questionnaire, enabling companies to review these more quickly and invite candidates to undertake secondments or internships. One of the assessment tasks in the final, again suggested by the company, involved business cases based on real-world company practice, put forward by Gazprom Neft.

Data from the organisers also shows Gazprom Neft as having the most competition winners among all larger (Blue Chip) companies.

Alexander Dyukov, Chairman of the Management Board, Gazprom Neft commented: “Russian business today needs young, creative, motivated professionals: new-generation specialists with the ability to work in a rapidly changing environment and sense the new — digital — nature of the modern economy. Gazprom Neft is the oil industry’s flagship in terms of implementing new technologies We are implementing hundreds of innovative projects, which means the challenge of finding and developing talented professionals is more than urgent for us. Taking part in this competition is, for our employees, a good training ground — an opportunity to test yourself, learn something new, gain new skills, and make new contacts.”
