PRINCIPLES OF COOPERATION: respect for the individual and the rights of employees (including non-discrimination), the right to freedom of association and collective bargaining in compliance with the current legislation, transparency of HR policy, economic justification and fairness in performance evaluation, and openness to dialogue.

The Company's interaction with employees is governed by internal regulations, collective agreements, and the Corporate Code.

In following the principles of social partnership, the Company actively interacts with trade union organizations representing the interests of workers.

Gazprom Neft’s internal communications system is the main tool for dialogue with employees. The Company works constantly to ensure it functions with maximum efficiency.

Some of the important channels of the internal communications system include:

  • corporate media covering Gazprom Neft events across the full range of the business
  • corporate events held to award employees with corporate and industry prizes and to engage employees in the internal life of the Company. Employees receive information about the Company's development plans and opportunities for professional and career growth
  • meetings between work teams and managers at Gazprom Neft enterprises, focused on the current agenda of the business and cooperation issues
  • cultural and sporting events

Feedback tools play an important role in Gazprom Neft’s internal communications system. These can be used by any employee to pose questions to a particular core business unit or the Company's management, and to put forward their ideas or proposals. Corresponding regulations govern the functioning of the feedback tools. The regulations ensure compliance with deadlines for considering and answering employee questions, and they also ensure that the answers reach the widest possible audience through the Company’s corporate media.

The Company conducts regular social and psychological studies at Gazprom Neft enterprises. These studies are used to identify any existing problems in the workforce and to develop measures to solve them.
