Today, the oil and gas sector is facing new challenges that can significantly change professional areas of activity and, therefore, specifics of HR management and social work.
In 2019 the Company launched a personnel performance and efficiency management system, based on the principles of modern leadership philosophy. This system introduces new approaches that reshape the role of staff in production and management processes. We already have a number of project teams working in the Exploration and Production business segment, and a digital environment is being created to facilitate their coordinated activities. Once we have achieved sustained results in this regard, we will gradually roll out the approach across other business segments.
Significant efforts have been taken to implement digital technologies, which makes it possible to rapidly and efficiently organize personnel management activities in various conditions. In particular, this includes, when necessary, providing remote access to corporate systems, and automated workplaces, which creates greater Company flexibility and mobility and accords with international best practices.
In order to boost the efficiency of employees’ work and to encourage them to use the distance learning system, special courses are developed and training events held to enhance industry-specific knowledge, and improve the knowledge of foreign languages and management skills. Thematic online trainings and webinars are regularly held on topical issues such as career building, negotiations, time management, motivation, increasing psychological resilience, and stress management.
The Corporate Knowledge Management System is developing actively, allowing employees from various regions to share best practices. The Company has information services offering necessary and beneficial information to employees.
In addition, 2019 saw the development and deployment of AR LUKOIL, a mobile app facilitating training in an augmented reality mode and corporate competitions, where each Company employee can participate.
