ROSNEFT GROUP HEADCOUNT AS AT THE
IMPROVEMENT IS A KEY PRIORITY
OF THE COMPANY
As of December 31, 2015, the headcount of the Rosneft Group companies reached 261.5 thousand employees1. The main reasons for the headcount increase were acquisition of new assets and employees hired from third party service contractors to the Group companies.
The median age of the Company’s employees remained almost unchanged being 39.7 years (39.4 at year-end 2014).
Executive positions were held by 32,700 thousand employees (31,700 at year-end 2014). As of 31 December 2015, the number of employees in executive positions remained almost the same compared with 31.12.2014 (12.7 %) representing 12.5 % of the total headcount as of 31.12.2015.
One of the Company’s key priorities is labor efficiency improvement. For implementation of this objective, in 2015 development and approval of consolidated labor efficiency performance indicators by the companies of the key business segments and the Company as a whole was completed.
The target value of labor efficiency performance indicator for the Company as a whole was approved by the Board of Directors as a technical and economic indicator of the Company included in the 2016 Business Plan.
As of 2016, performance KPIs by relevant business areas have been included in the lists of performance indicators of the Company’s top managers and chief executives of the Group companies.
In 2015, principles of classifying employees as administrative and management staff and the maximum ratio of administrative and management staff to the total headcount for such companies were developed for the staff of a number of general corporate service companies. This rate was used for development of the 2016–2020 Business Plan.

ALIGNMENT AND AUTOMATION OF THE KEY HR PROCESSES
In 2015, as part of implementation of the Company’s approved Plan of Control Enforcement and Automation in HR Management, Payroll, and Social Development until 2020, we completed a pilot project for development and implementation of a single corporate template (SCT) for personnel accounting and payroll based on a single information platform (SAP) at two pilot companies (LLC RN-Yuganskneftegaz and JSC Kuibyshev Refinery). In the fall of 2015, a project of replicating this template solution in five more Group companies was launched, as well as a project of bringing the unified information system of the former TNK-BP to SCT algorithms. Simultaneously, development was started of a similar template solution based on the second information platform (1S), which is designed for smaller enterprises of the Company.
It is expected that by end-2016 the information systems on the basis of the uniform algorithms and methods will do accounting and calculation of payroll for 69 thousand employees (SAP platform) and for 2.5 thousand employees (1S-Payroll Management platform), which is approximately 47 % of the total headcount of the Company performed by corporate information systems (150 thousand persons). This will make approximately ~26 % of the total headcount of the Group Companies, where the Company owns 50 % and more stakes in the charter capital. Continuous full-scope implementation of 2020 Plan for enhancing control and automation of HR management, salary calculation and social development will contribute to significant growth of the Group companies’ involvement into the standard HR trend.
The key benefits from this large scale project are:
- Standardizing the Company’s recurring business processes as related to HR management and payroll system;
- Reducing the risk of employee personal data leaks due to data loss prevention controls embedded in the rolled-out solutions; Building a company-wide integrated HR and payroll system, enabling walkthrough of compliance with the Labor Law and the Company’s policies;
- Optimizing routine HR processes (including reporting), reducing the level of service required to maintain HR and payroll processes.
The completion of the project is scheduled for 2020.

HEALTH CARE AND INSURANCE

For 170 thousand employees of the Group companies, insurance coverage is effective in the event of death and total or partial disability resulting from an accident, and employees are insured not only for the period of performance of their duties but also during off-hours. Successful implementation of approaches to voluntary insurance of employees against accidents has also started at the Company’s contractor organizations.
A systemic approach to the implementation of all areas of social policy, careful attention to the needs of employees and their families, and a responsible business style contribute to the stability and efficiency of social investments not only within the Group companies but also in the regions of Rosneft’s presence.
