Sakhalin Energy Ranks among Russia's Top 5 Employers in the Energy Sector

The HeadHunter Group has presented its Russian Employer Ranking for 2022. The operator of the Sakhalin-2 project ranks second among large companies in the 'Energy, Upstream, and Downstream' category and fourth overall in the industry. Sakhalin Energy is among the five finalists alongside such companies in the oil and gas sector as Gazprom Neft, SIBUR, and Gazprom Nedra.

The organisers say that competition among the ranking participants intensified significantly in 2022, with the final list of the best employers according to having expanded by 28% over the year. At the same time, the number of oil and gas majors, among which the Company ranks second, has risen by 46%.

The overall standings were based on the outcomes of three contest rounds. Round one involved completing an HR questionnaire to assess how effective an entrant's HR processes were and how they stacked up against those of their competitors across the industry. During the second round, the participants were asked to conduct online opinion surveys among their employees. This provided an objective assessment of employees' perceptions of their respective employers, employee loyalty levels, and their willingness to recommend their companies to their acquaintances as potential workplaces. During round three of the contest, external respondents, namely job seekers from the portal, provided employer brand feedback.

“People are the fundamental, most valuable asset of Sakhalin Energy.” In an increasingly competitive labour market, the Company believes that retaining key personnel and creating the right conditions for attracting new talent is its number one priority. Meeting this challenge is instrumental in mitigating HR, financial, and operational risks. In this context, the increase in the employee loyalty score is an especially valuable result of the ranking for us. It has increased from 56 to 72.3 since 2021, which is a clear indication of the effectiveness of the measures that the Company is taking to make its business sustainable and boost its attractiveness as an employer," commented Alexander Sheykin, Sakhalin Energy's HR Director, on the ranking results.

The Company has participated in the ranking for the third consecutive year and has all along been among the leading companies in the fuel and energy sector, demonstrating stable performance. By analysing the data collected in the course of the contest, Sakhalin Energy can assess, over time, the level of personnel involvement in the Company's activities and make timely decisions related to managing personnel turnover and developing staff capabilities.
