Employee training and development

The Gazprom Neft training and development system covers all categories of employees in the company and in contractor organisations. In addition, the company attaches special importance to the training of prospective employees from target groups: school and university students.

Gazprom Neft has created an integrated company-wide educational environment—the Corporate University—which combines all corporate training and development practices. At the Corporate University, Gazprom Neft employees gain up-to-date innovative knowledge, and each employee can be both a student, and a coach or expert. One of the key objectives of the Corporate University is to engage experts and executives in personnel training, create a strong community of in-house coaches, and generate state-of-the-art knowledge within the company.

The Corporate University consists of faculties and departments. A department is a professional expertise centre, which helps to make Gazprom Neft an industry leader by developing professional communities and engaging the best experts in order to accumulate and share knowledge and successful practices. In 2019, the Corporate University updated its concept and the methodology of working with departments, compiled a list of key performance indicators, analysed performance, and outlined performance improvement plans.
