HSE – Attractive Employer 2012
As a result of research by SuperJob.ru, the Higher School of Economics has received an Attractive Employer 2012 award.
Superjob.ru has been running a survey of “employer attractiveness” for six years now. In it, employers are divided into four regional categories (Moscow, Saint Petersburg, the “Millioniki” - cities with over a million population, and all other cities) . Each category has six criteria for evaluating nominees. Employers complying with at least four criteria are acknowledged the winners. The key requirements for employers include an average salary not lower than the average on the market; a high number of views of vacancies and direct responses to them on the SuperJob.ru website; a lack of complaints from the applicants for vacancies; and further fulfillment of the labour contract by the employer.
Compliance with these criteria means HSE is now on the list of attractive employers in 2012, and has a special certificate from SuperJob to prove it.
