Gazprom believes that its people are the reason that the company is being so successful. ?There would be no revenues without our people? as Anne Sheen, the Human Resources Manager said. There are already 80 people at the moment, from the two who started the company seven years ago, the managing director and his personal assistant. All the employees at Gazprom are very talented people with a lot of skills and with several years of experience in their fields. Good leadership is the key to the success of Gazprom; it involves demonstrating courage to do their very best, building a share vision of the company; Gazprom tries that its staff feels as part of the Gazprom family, and that everybody is as important as everybody else within the organization; and delivering results.

In the energy sector there is a lot of competition, so Gazprom always tries to keep its people, they try to pay them high salaries, based on equal payments, if people do the same thing the get the same money, they try to give to their staff a good fed back, value them recognizing their success, giving them the opportunity to success, training them formally, and this is something managers have to understand, how to value their staff. ?Doing small things as remembering the name of the employees' children makes a huge difference for our employees? Anne Sheen, the Human Resources Manager said. All their employees get a private health and dental insurance, a pension system, 25 days of flexible holidays per year, with the possibility of buying five extra days, car allowances, and a sick insurance, if for example, they get sick, the company pays them the 100 per cent of their salary, and if it takes longer an agency pays them the 75 per cent of their salary as log as necessary.
