The HR policy of Irkutsk Oil Company is aimed at the development of the region and its labour potential. In 2021, INK Group tested new formats of recruitment with the aim to engage more locals. These included retraining and training for large-scale jobs of candidates without work experience, as well as corporate training of students from regional educational institutions. At the same time, the focus remains on engineering professions and IT specialists.

“For all employers, including us, a year of 2021 was a challenging one. Meanwhile, the tasks it set for us were completely differentiated. For example, we were faced with the consequences of the demographic pit of the 1990s — the number of resumes from young professionals decreased. Last year special attention was paid to this segment and non-standard for the company hiring tools were used,” noted Victoria Ilyukhina, a Director of Human Resources at Irkutsk Oil Company.

In Ust-Kut and Kirensk, INK-Classes were opened, where students of 10th and 11th grades study in depth the subjects required for admission to specialized major programs. A joint project on targeted corporate training of students with subsequent employment is being implemented with Irkutsk National Research Technical University. This program invites not only universities and colleges of the region, but also of other Russian cities.
