13 june 2023
In Moscow, the winners of the XVII HR Brand Award 2022 were named.
As reported by recognition has been given to companies that, despite difficult times, continue to take care of staff, looking in a new way at their training, social support, digital development and security. Among the industry leaders is Norilsk Nickel, which received an award from Headhunter.
The HR Brand Award is the largest and most authoritative platform for demonstrating the best practices of working with employees. The winning companies are traditionally trendsetters, that is, innovators and creators who perceive new ideas and trends before others and are the first to introduce new technologies and products into mass use.
Norilsk Nickel has held the title of the best employer in the industry since 2018, which is confirmed by numerous HR awards. So, at the last award, the company became the winner in two categories at once: "Federation Grand" (federal-scale projects implemented by companies of five thousand employees) with the project "Present for the future: developing engineering potential" and "Region" (projects implemented in one region of the Russian Federation) with the project "Is there life on watch."
The victory in the Federation Grand nomination is the result of the company's long–term work to transform the image of the mining industry and Norilsk Nickel as the industry's leading employer among students and professionals.
The awards were not the first in the HR company's piggy bank. Recently, Norilsk Nickel entered the top 50 best employers in the world according to global Forbes.
