The procedure used by Gazprom Neft for notifying employees of major operational changes complies with the provisions of the Labour Code, which stipulates a minimum notice period of at least two months for major operational changes, and at least three months for downsizing decisions that may lead to large-scale redundancies.
Gazprom Neft runs a job placement programme for employees of projects and enterprises that are scheduled for closure. Ahead of the shutdown of an enterprise, project or development site, the company forms a cross-functional team and prepares a job placement plan, the implementation of which is supervised by the Head of the Organisational Development and HR Management Directorate. This involves compiling a list of potential vacancies in the company, communicating the relevant information to employees, and arranging individual meetings between the employees and the heads of business units offering the jobs.
