On 27 April, Kommersant publishing house held an HR conference dedicated to the new recruitment reality and HSE developments in 2022. Conference speakers, including representatives from the business community, government bodies and industry experts, took part in two panel sessions. Alexander Kruchinin, Vice President for Health, Safety, Environment and Sustainability at Polyus, elaborated at one of these sessions on the importance for all employers of focusing on the condition of their employees. The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated the truth behind this idea as companies had to organize their work to maintain a good balance between business efficiency and care for their employees.
Our track record demonstrates that cross-functional communication between different Polyus departments is required to successfully address these issues.»Alexander Kruchinin commented
