Segment development model
The Company embarked on implementing a new market strategy, which underpinned the long-term business model. In 2015, in order to implement this model successfully, Rostelecom has completed the first stage of transition to the segment regional model, when each client segment (B2C, B2B/B2G and B2O) operates in a separate financial and marketing area. This enables improving the Company’s client service quality in general and provides transparency while evaluating each segment’s performance. Moreover, the maximum speed of responding to changes in market environment will be achieved, which is critical in the period when new markets and product solutions are formed.
Changes were mainly introduced in the Company’ commercial, technical and IT divisions. Also, technical and IT divisions are being integrated, which enables achieving better quality of services provided by the Company.
Rostelecom experienced a challenging way from an integration of individual regional companies to the national communication operator. It took several years to develop shared corporate values and standards. In the
The Company implemented the training system with main components being the corporate university, the institute of internal coaches and the corporate system of remote learning. New employees are involved in the system of mentorship and adaptation. The system of career planning has been developed and the Succession Pool program has been put in place to enable filling the major part of vacancies at the expense of in-house resources. With the help of modern crowdsourcing platforms, each employee can take part in joint finding of solutions and propose his/her own idea to optimize business processes. Rostelecom was one of the first companies in Russia, which started providing a systemic support to laid-off employees.
The support is provided at all stages as part of the staff outplacement program, including searching of new jobs in other divisions if a vacancy is available, and even in other companies. Today, the corporate culture of Rostelecom is underpinned by two strategic principles of the Company being the efficiency and the client focus. They were represented in the adopted Code of Corporate Conduct of PJSC Rostelecom’s employees.
Priorities in human resources management
A large -scale restructuring of the core business was facilitated by optimizing the management system in all divisions. The key focus is to increase staff performance through the creation of necessary conditions to achieve success and raise the level of employees’ engagement. Rostelecom builds a strong corporate culture and the team, where people understand each other well at all levels.
