17.03.2020 the newspaper "The Republic of Tatarstan"

Support and development of socially significant projects and programs are one of the key activities of TAIF-NK JSC over a period of many years. Adhering to the principles of high social responsibility, the Company traditionally pays special attention to creating the positive environment at the enterprise. The priority is the implementation of housing programmes for workers, targeted aid to war and labor veterans, low-income families and physically disabled people, support for culture and sports.

TAIF-NK is one of the advanced companies in the country in terms of techniques and quality of oil products refining. Stable results of the Company’s activities, high industrial practices and the successful implementation of strategic objectives are mainly achieved due to the Company`s major asset – the highly professional staff motivated for the effective work. In turn, TAIF-NK is in full compliance with labor legislation and cares for well-being of its employees over the long run. One way to coordinate the interests of the employer and employees in the modern context is to conclude a collective labour agreement, in which the Company has remained all social payments and obligations to its employees.

GUARANTEES OF SOCIAL STABILITY

Today, about four thousand people work in TAIF-NK, just over half of which are workers under the age of 35. One of the employees support measures is the availability of an extended package of social guarantees comprising not only guarantees provided by the labor legislation, but also additional payments under the Company`s internal acts. At the Company's expense the employees are provided with different kinds of social benefits and services: monthly financial allowance to women being on maternity leave for the period of up to 1.5 years of child’s age; one-time financial allowance on the occasion of birth and/or adoption of a child; one-time allowance on the occasion of a marriage; a payment on the occasion of an employee’s birthday or anniversary date; financial allowance for a scheduled annual vacation; financial allowance to an employee that retired due to the retirement age; financial allowance to the employees having handicapped children up to 18 years of age, etc. One of the most important elements of the TAIF-NK social policy is to provide employees with the housing equipped with modern conveniences. Due to the implementation of the mortgage programs by the Company over the period from 2005 to 2019, 773 families celebrated housewarming. Of these, 654 families received housing under the social mortgage republican program, 119 families received housing due to the corporate additional mortgage program. From 2005 to 2019, TAIF-NK allocated over RUB 1.8 bln for both housing programmes. Under the sponsorship of a shareholder within the mortgage programs, the Company successfully uses co-financing instruments in the form of target loans granting to employees, reimbursement for loan and mortgage interest charges, and makes additional payments in the amount of RUB 200,000.00 at the birth of each child. All employees who have worked at the Company for more than a year can take part in the program. All apartments for TAIF-NK employees are ready-to-move-in apartments, with interior and entrance doors, PVC windows, glassed-in enclosed balconies, plumbing equipment, gas ovens, high-quality finishing materials, and a fire extinguishing system. Each apartment is equipped with utility counters (water, gas, electricity), and heat regulators.

Rushan SHAMGUNOV, TAIF-NK JSC General Director: “Social responsibility and social partnership are those fundamental principles that help to solve in a quality manner the production objectives facing our company. Our absolute understanding is that the main value of the company is our specialists, which are almost four thousand employees. TAIF-NK is and will be the company of social responsibility with the highest level.”

The Company cares for the prosperity of the staff not only for now, but also for the short-term. Running a clearly defined HR policy, TAIF-NK follows the strategy set at the both state and republican levels. High-potential specialists for work at TAIF-NK are selected even before graduation from the educational institution. The Company has developed and successfully operates an adaptation program in order for a new employee to be quickly accepted as one of the team and to master a profession. Newly hired employees take the professional training, and, in addition, they are appointed with the tutors – the experienced specialists who help them to become familiar with the production facilities and learn the necessary skills. The Company keeps in mind the employees with a rich labour experience. At the end of last year, TAIF-NK employees of preretirement age successfully completed training under the national project "Demography" as part of the federal project "Senior Generation". The Company`s representatives, who have to work another five years or less before they get their pensions, have been able to upgrade their skills or get a new profession so as not to fall out of the operating process. Before organizing the training, the specialists of the technical training group conducted a large-scale monitoring of the number of preretirement persons, their preferences in obtaining additional professional education, which would be useful to the employees themselves and would be highly demanded in industries. Under the detailed approach to selecting the proposed programs, three occupations have been identified that are relevant for the TAIF-NK employees - obtaining the profession of a sling operator, OH&S upgrade training course and industrial safety training. The acquired new professions will help employees of preretirement age to continue labour activity and remain in high demand in the job market before they take well-deserved rest.
