Employee training and development
Gazprom Neft is proceeding with the development of its competency-based continuous training programme. Learning paths are based on employee performance and evaluation of their potential, the selection of promising technologies to be implemented, and the unit manager’s vision of personnel training requirements.
The Gazprom Neft training and development system is open to all employees of the company and its contractors, as well as target groups of prospective employees, namely school and university students.
Average training hours per employee decreased in 2020, as in-person training was halted and some practical training could not be done remotely.
The company’s training function is led by the Corporate University, whose structure consists of faculties subdivided into departments. The university develops training programmes according to demand, monitors the implementation of business development and transformation strategy and creates mechanisms to monitor training results and efficiency
The professional department development at the Corporate University
In 2020, the company placed considerable emphasis on developing the professional departments at the Corporate University. The key focus areas of the University’s development in 2020 were closer ties with business; the creation of a system for interaction, training and development; codifying internal and external expertise; better definition of the institution’s role and organisational structure; growing its impact on the industry and codifying a system to evaluate the contribution of individual departments to the company’s business.
The Corporate University opened a Digital Transformation Faculty with seven professional departments.
In-house coach development
In 2020, the company developed uniform approaches to the management, development and performance evaluation of coaches, and defined their categories and career path.
A package of online and offline training programmes has been prepared for each category.
Also in 2020, Gazprom Neft created a system to keep records of coaches’ activities on the Knowledge Portal, including the hours spent training and coaching, as well as student coverage and responses to feedback questionnaires. New training programmes developed by coaches are included in standard curriculum templates. The In-house Coach Library was launched on the Knowledge Portal, and each coach’s online account now features a widget with their personal statistics.
Corporate Knowledge Portal
Expansion of the corporate Knowledge Portal’s functionality continued in 2020. Certificates are now issued automatically upon completion of training, a new service to evaluate and rank training providers based on training participant and organiser feedback has been launched, and data on department activities and employees’ training needs are now collected automatically. The Knowledge Portal’s basic services have been made more mobile friendly.
Key achievements of the Corporate University in 2020
Managers who did not participate in the corporate culture transformation events last year took part in corporate culture workshops in 2020. These efforts aim to create an information space for all company managers, with data on the corporate culture transformation, corporate values and employee engagement management all available. Over 2,000 managers attended Workshop 1.0 in 2020. The programme was shifted online for ease of training. Workshop 1.0 materials were integrated into the new manager onboarding programme.
In 2020, managers started to take training on Workshop
