    Russian market overview: Business driving forces and HR trends
    Daniel Thorniley, Founder of CEEMEA Business Group
    Budget reduction was a tough global trend in 2017-2018. Now, economists foretell a steady, albeit moderate, growth for Russia, but business still operates in total uncertainty. What are global and Russian companies planning for 2019? Can the budget allow for traditional price increase? How detrimental to traditional distribution channels will e-commerce be now and in the next 2-3 years? What will happen to the labor market?

    Key figures from the budgets of companies operating in Russia and the CIS, economic and currency forecasts as well as HR trends will be provided in the presentation of the President of CEE-Russia Business Group, the largest business community in the CIS and Eastern Europe.
  • 10:00 – 10:30
    How to develop long-term strategies in a rapidly changing world?
    Ilya Panteleev, General Director of Intercomp
    Investing too much in accurate forecasting and planning can backfire in a rapidly changing world. Having a plan is, in some cases, far from being a sign of good leadership, but completely giving up planning is a dubious idea. Is there a middle ground? And if so, how can we pin it down?
  • 10:30 – 11:00
    Scenarios of Russia’s macroeconomic development for 2019
    Stanislav Skakun, Head of Finance at Intercomp

    Review of legislation changes
    Elena Rybnikova, Head of Internal Audit, Expertise and Methodology Department at Intercomp
    In July-August 2018, the Russian President signed 26 bills that will amend the Russian Tax Code and Code of Administrative Offenses.

    Master class: HR analytics of staff turnover
    Galina Deynekina, Business Trainer and HR Analytics Consultant at Deynekina HR&BA
    HR specialists are often berated for being unable to show their impact on corporate results. We will consider through a specific example, i.e. the analysis of staff turnover indicators, how HR analytics help identifying HR management problems, preventing them in time as well as assist companies in achieving their strategic goals. We will also consider how to evaluate the impact of staff turnover on various business indicators.

    What non-material incentives are used in Russia and worldwide to motivate staff? Which ones work and which ones don’t? We will present the findings of an analysis conducted by Intercomp Center for Macroeconomic Research.
  • 13:45 – 14:30
    Emotional Intelligence: How we actually make decisions
    Oleg Kalinichev, Director of Paul Ekman Int. Representative Office
    Daniel Goleman published in 1995 his book Emotional Intelligence in which he describes what emotional intelligence is and why it can mean more than ordinary intelligence for success, career, and a happy life. The concept of emotional intelligence is slowly gaining momentum in the Russian business community. Oleg Kalinichev, expert in emotional intelligence, will share his practical experience in this field.
