More than 500 port employees and their family members took part in educational tours and corporate events organized by the company. Special events were organized for port employees’ children.
Financial support was provided to employees with multi-child families, unwed mothers employed by the port and employees in hard life situations.
Employees granted with “Veteran of the Port” title, active members of the port’s veterans organization and those celebrating anniversaries were given quarter bonuses and financial presents to mark significant state and professional holidays.
Personnel education has been traditionally among the priorities of SP SPb. In the reporting period, the company allocated RUB 7 million under different programmes of qualification and competence enhancement. 599 employees, mostly workers, mastered new equipment, studied occupational safety and fire rules.
