Dear friends!

Once again another summer has passed us by. The fountains at Peterhof are no longer sparkling, and minds have once more been filled with dreams of fireplaces and mulled wine …. and we have been bombarding you with invitations to our events, because the new business season is now in full swing!
Now, a few words about how we spent the month of September!

On the 4th of September we held a meeting of the HR Committee on “Review of salaries and recruitment in the manufacturing sector.” The meeting has raised great interest among the HR audience of SPIBA due to the importance of the issues and September budgeting which was happening in many companies. Guests were especially pleased with the high level of speakers, who provided information on trends and tendencies in the market, information on benefits and compensation, and of course, the latest analytical data.

On September 6, UFAS Working Group of SPIBA organized a meeting with the new head of UFAS St. Petersburg Belyaev Alexander N. Members of the working group were pleased to meet Alexander Nikolaevich and discuss critical issues related to antimonopoly legislation, the joint action plan, as well as the participation of experts from SPIBA in the Community Advisory Board of the UFAS.

Also, the Committee on Environmental Protection of SPIBA decided to talk about labor protection in industrial companies. On September 25th, we invited experts for presentations from major manufacturing enterprises, and a professor from the Institute of Industrial Safety, Labor Protection and Social Partnership, Kalinin Yuri S., who illuminated the theoretical aspects of the problem and told us about the changes in legislation. You can read the opinions of our members about the event here!

On the evening of September the 25th, a new French restaurant “Legran” on Millionnaya str. hosted the “Get Together” event, organized in cooperation with Starget Guest Management. The evening turned out to be productive in terms of exchange of business contacts and was also very enjoyable! The excellent program of the event pleased all of the guests, it included delicious snacks, French wines, music and a lottery, in which certificates for dinner at the restaurant Legran were raffled!
