The specialists decided to find out what strategy for regulating the staff of employees Russian companies have chosen for themselves. To do this, they interviewed HR directors and line managers in HR departments from different industries.

Active recruiting, according to researchers, will continue in IT, sales and manufacturing. They will also hire top managers – not only to replace, but also new leaders.

That is why business is more focused on retaining and developing current employees and uses various non-material motivation tools for this,” says Elena Morozova, managing partner of Atsearch Group.

And on the little things: discounts on the company’s products, food compensation, etc. Experts are sure: “The importance of support and care in 2022-2023 will grow more than ever.”
