Gazprom Neft and independent non-profit organisation (NPO) “Russia — Land of Opportunity” have signed a Cooperation Agreement on developing the country’s human resources potential, as well as on holding business competitions. The agreement outlines key areas of cooperation in creating an environment conducive to talented specialists — from all over Russia — achieving their full professional potential. The signatories to the document were Alexander Dyukov, CEO and Chairman of the Management Board, Gazprom Neft, and Alexey Komissarov, CEO, “Russia — Land of Opportunity”.
The “Professionals 4.0” platform — a new environment for implementing business projects through flexible teams — will form the main basis for cooperation, with this strategic partnership allowing finalists in Russia — Land of Opportunities’ business competitions to get involved in implementing projects for corporate organisations and government agencies, while allowing talented professionals, in turn, to offer their knowledge and skills without having to be permanently employed.
One of the most famous projects of the “Russia — Land of Opportunity” platform under the auspices of the President of the Russian Federation is the “Digital Breakthrough” competition for IT specialists. Three thousand finalists in this competition will be given access to the Professionals 4.0 platform in October 2019, as well as being given the opportunity to take part in government and commercial organisations’ projects as members of flexible teams.

“The common objective we share with the Russia — Land of Opportunities non-profit organisation lies in creating professional and social ‘lifts’, offering talented young people the opportunity of getting involved in addressing the genuine tasks facing the economy and the government. As one of Russia’s most important oil companies, we are interested in developing the country’s human resources potential and in new forms of collaboration between ambitious, talented professionals and the corporate sector.”Alexander Dyukov CEO and Chairman of the Management Board, Gazprom Neft
“The key objective of the Presidency-endorsed ‘Russia — Land of Opportunity’ platform is creating opportunities for self-fulfilment for Russians involved in our projects as finalist and winners. These act as additional plus-points in enrolling at the country’s leading higher educational establishments, and in mentoring programmes and further education programmes, or in helping to find work. This is now enhanced by the additional opportunities offered through the Professionals 4.0 platform. We think it’s important to join forces with companies and organisations doing similar things internally. Incidentally, Gazprom Neft is, already, a partner on our flagship ‘Leaders of Russia’ project, and I have no doubt that our collaboration will, now, become still more productive.”Alexey Komissarov CEO, Russia — Land of Opportunities
The Professionals 4.0 platform was released during the final of the Leaders of Russia competition in Sochi in March 2019. The project brings major companies together with talented professionals in addressing technological and managerial challenges, through flexible teams. The platform offers direct engagement via a website and mobile app, as well as online facilities for networking and professional development. Once registered, users can access its database to select tasks of interest to them. Partners including SIBUR, Ruselectronics, Rostelecom, Rosseti, SKOLKOVO Business School, Ernst & Young, the Administration of the Leningrad Oblast and others are already involved in the project.
