TMK wins two categories in the Leaders of Russian Business: Dynamics and Responsibility 2020 competition by RSPP
TMK was named a winner of the Leaders of Russian Business: Dynamics and Responsibility 2020 competition held by the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP).
This year’s competition brought together more than 240 companies from 35 regions of Russia. TMK won in two out of nine categories, Progress in Human Resources Development and Best Practices in Employee and Counterparty Safety in a Novel Coronavirus Environment.
The Company relies on TMK and Sinara Group’s TMK2U Corporate University to build its talent pipeline. The University is a center for research, assessment and attraction of necessary skills, contributing to building an environment that fosters development and the corporate culture, and driving employee engagement on TMK’s strategic goals. Today, the University’s portfolio includes more than 170 programs, with about 40 thousand employees from across TMK Group and Sinara Group trained through classroom and online programs, and over 170 electronic courses taken 145 thousand times in total.
To ensure employee safety during the pandemic, TMK moved about a quarter of its people to remote work and took necessary health and safety measures for those supporting the continuity of operations at the Company’s critical facilities. This was largely achieved through the well-coordinated effort of plant managers at all levels as well as HR teams.
TMK supported healthcare workers in its regions of operation via three channels – the Sinara Charity Foundation, the Coordinating Council for Combatting COVID-19 under the Sverdlovsk Regional Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, and local initiatives at its enterprises. Relevant spending exceeded RUB 750 million in 2020.
The annual national competition Leaders of Russian Business: Dynamics and Responsibility aims at promoting companies’ sustainability in line with long-term business interests and recognizing fast-improving organizations based on their rating scores. The judging panel uses publicly available information and follows the principles of objectivity, transparency and professional ethics.
