Uralchem Group performed very strongly in RAEX’s new sustainability and HR management study. The agency reviewed HR activities and practices of 160 Russian companies and selected 10 leaders in the quality of employee development. Uralkali PJSC and Uralchem JSC were both in the top 10 of the ranking with 7th and 10th places, respectively.

The survey participants were assessed against a number of key criteria including the availability of management programmes in occupational health and safety, human rights, talent attraction and retention, and inclusive working environment. Also considered were employee diversity and benefits, and accident and turnover statistics.

Anna Arifulina, Uralchem Deputy CEO HR Director:

The biggest capital of any successful business is its people. Their professionalism, involvement and teamwork are already half of success. It is therefore important for the Group’s management to maintain strong competences and ability to innovate in their teams, and so we will continue investing in these activities.

Irina Konstantinova, Uralkali Deputy CEO HR and Communications Director:

For Uralkali, achievement of goals and implementation of the business strategy are made possible primarily by employees. In turn, we as the employer provide the best conditions for work, development, and recreation, and also encourage efficiency. Being in the top 10 is very important for us, because it confirms that our HR policy is on the right track.
