Our people

We are working to strengthen our reputation as a responsible and reliable employer. Global Ports invests resources in employee development, improves work processes, and helps staff to achieve personal goals, while fulfilling the Company’s operational objectives.

We create an environment where our employees can improve their professional skills on a daily basis, take advantage of career development opportunities, and be part of a Global Ports corporate culture that values each individual’s uniqueness and creates an atmosphere of respect and support.

As of 31 December 2023, Global Ports employed 3,160 people, of whom 3,072 are permanent employees, 3,137 are full-time. In 2023, the Company hired 732 new employees (the rate of new employees is 23.2%). The Company dismissed 415 employees in 2023, and the employee turnover rate was 13.1%.1

Tenure of employees (2023) Diversity, inclusion, equal opportunity, and human rights

At Global Ports, we respect the fundamental civil, political, economic, and social rights and freedoms of every human being and build on these principles in our work. The Company’s Code of Ethics includes commitments to respect human rights that strictly comply with both Russian and international laws. We follow the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and endeavour to incorporate them into our daily practices. Our Human Rights Policy sets minimum standards that must be met not only by our employees, but also by everyone who works with our Company.

At Global Ports, we fundamentally do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, political opinion, marital status, age, gender, sexual orientation, or disability. We continue to actively promote diversity and equal opportunities through employee engagement and training.

Traditionally, the logistics industry employs more men than women. As of 31 December 2023, women made up 28% of the Holding’s total employees, including 37% of managers, 59% of specialists, and 13% of workers. Women account for 20% of the members of the Board of Directors.

In 2023, we trained 17 women as crane operators, and some of them are already working in crews in their new positions. Participation in this programme has been an opportunity for many of Global Ports’ female employees to develop and gain interesting and well-paid employment.
