Interview with Yulia Popovtseva
Read the interview with Yulia Popovtseva, HR Director, Bashneft – Ufaneftekhim
How and to what extent does the HR Department contribute to the optimization process in the Bashneft-Ufaneftekhim company? What is its role?
If we consider optimization as the search for an optimal solution and the improvement of effectiveness of business processes, the tasks of the HR Department are as follows:
a) Improving the organizational structure of management, which provides effective functioning of processes, including the optimal staff placement in order to achieve the set goals and objectives;
b) Meeting staffing requirements in terms of both quality and quantity for specific business objectives;
c) Enhancing staff competence through identifying existing gaps for future projects;
d) Developing motivation and remuneration systems in a changing environment (internal and external);
e) The search for additional time resources (time loss optimization) in order to implement multitasking, etc.
The above mentioned aspects, as well as others, facilitate the improvement of effectiveness.
The partner’s (not the administrator’s) main role is to provide a quality “resource” to achieve set objectives.
Based on the company’s vision, what are the three most important values you take into consideration when acquiring new talents?
a) Conscientiousness, result-orientation;
b) Analytical and searching for the best solutions;
c) Commitment, self-development and willingness to change.
How would you describe an ordinary day of an HR Director in one sentence?
The use of multi-vector communications to satisfy the “inner client” (HR personnel and other functional units), the development of approaches and solutions to achieve set goals during constant changes and the quality analysis of “the output product”.
How has the perception of your career path changed since joining the Bashneft-Ufaneftekhim team (this can be related to the work in the HR Department, the comparison of the Russian and other countries’ markets as well as achieving personal goals and plans for the future)?
The previously gained experience and the immersion in the processes of the Bashneft refinery helped me to realize that:
1. It is possible to achieve many goals based on the lessons learnt from the implemented projects and their results – and to enjoy the outcomes of their realization in the future;
2. The scale of an asset does not influence the task implementation as long as there is an understanding of HR management processes and business partnership;
3. The stage of this active company’s business development coincides with my personally active position at work, which means a comfortable working environment, hopefully, for many years.
