Cherkizovo Group, Russia’s largest meat producer, is committed to offering decent working conditions to its employees across all regions where it operates. The facilities in Bashkiria acquired by the Company in late 2022 are no exception. This year, we revised salaries at these facilities, and provided employees with new opportunities for professional development.
Cherkizovo Group acquired Turbaslinsky Broilers, Ufa Grain Products Plant, Bashkir Grain+, Bashkir Grain, and Turbaslinsky Broiler Trading House in December 2022. Following the change of ownership, the facilities saw a number of projects launched to align their working conditions with Cherkizovo Group’s standards. In 2022, Cherkizovo ranked 42nd in the rating of Russian employers, according to HeadHunter.
Headcount of Cherkizovo Group’s sites in Bashkortostan currently exceeds 2,000 people, with around 800 workers still needed. Most of the vacancies are for blue-collar staff – maintenance fitters, operators, electricians, and movers. Cherkizovo is also looking for process engineers, veterinarians, mechanical engineers, and power engineers. The Company will cover accommodation costs for those relocating from other parts of Russia.
All employees in Bashkortostan enjoy corporate transfers to the sites, free hot meals, and high- quality workwear. Cherkizovo Group plans to improve its administrative and amenity facilities by building hygiene locks and equipping dining premises.
From early 2023, as in other regions of operation, the Company is reviewing salaries in Bashkortostan, with due regard to employee performance and the level of remuneration locally. The change in monthly income is comparable to the average salary growth in the market – at least 10%, on average.
Along with a regular pay increase, Cherkizovo offers monthly, quarterly, and annual bonuses to different categories of employees. On top of that, the Company runs a Bring a Friend incentive program: if you help hire a friend or acquaintance, you can get from RUB 15,000 to RUB 30,000. All employees can take part in Cherkizovo’s corporate events, for example, in volleyball competitions as part of their own team.
Cherkizovo Group pays great attention to the professional development of its management team and experts in various areas. For this reason, the Company tests the potential of its employees, draws up individual development plans, and has mentoring and succession programs in place.
