HR audits

HR audits are one mechanism for monitoring the observance of labor rights in LUKOIL Group entities, and involve auditing processes associated with the documentation of labor relations, establishing remuneration and work incentives for employees, and safeguarding employee personal data during processing (with or without automation tools).

HR audits also check the procedure for documenting disciplinary action that may be associated with employees' compliance with the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (e.g. information on the employment of relatives as direct subordinates may be requested).

Monitoring work includes ensuring that the business processes and activities of LUKOIL Group entities comply with Russian labor law, the Company's regulations, and other requirements established by legal acts containing labor law provisions.

In 2018, such audits were conducted in LLC LUKOIL-ENERGOSETI, LLC LUKOIL-Kubanenergo, LLC LUKOIL-Trans, and the Yareganeft oil and mining production enterprise.

Based on the audit results, recommendations are elaborated to improve HR management processes in LUKOIL Group entities. Audits also include an analysis of existing control systems.
