Abstract. There are many scientific papers that have investigated the impact of determinants on social benefits. And only a small number of them were considered as the subject of their implementation-companies, not the state. This paper analyzes the dynamics of social payments for Russian companies after the 2014 crisis. Data were collected on the amount of social benefits for the study period from 2014 to 2019. From the literature review, such variables as assets, liabilities, return on sales, financial leverage ratio, net profit, Tobin, average wage, the difference between new workers and who was laid off, dummy variables – state-owned company and other dummy - crisis. A number of tests were performed, including the Hausman test, during which a model with fixed effects was selected. The results indicate a positive impact of assets, net profit, Tobin, the ROS, the average wage of workers, as well as the company's belonging to the state; as well as liabilities and the presence of a crisis have negative impact on the average amount of social benefits. Key words: social benefits, fixed effects model, crisis.
