November 26, 2014. Uralvagonzavod Corporation’s head plant in Nizhniy Tagil hosted the 12th Research-to-Practice Young Workers Conference.

According to the corporation’s press service, workers from member enterprises based in Omsk, Yekaterinburg, Ishimbay, Kirov, Kamensk Uralsky, Nizhniy Novgorod, and Nizhniy Tagil spent two days looking into production diversification as a vector for the corporation’s innovative development. 328 young experts from 118 divisions of the corporation and its member enterprises made their reports at the conference.

Discussions were dedicated to Company Management, Planning & Organization, Today’s HR Technologies within a Large Industrial Enterprise, New Product Types, Repair & Maintenance of Technological Equipment and Fixed Assets Construction, Production Upgrades, and other topics. Reports were assessed by Uralvagonzavod’s directors and leading experts.

‘The second day of the conference was spent talking about all the relevant issues within the company youth policy. Mechanisms for involving young workers into finding solutions to vital production problems were considered, as were ways of increasing young workers’ awareness. It was decided, for one, that coordination of young teams’ contests should be resumed. The discussion panels’ moderators spoke very highly of the participants’ contribution. Deputy Chief Engineer for Railway Vehicles Yaroslav Rydlevsky said, for example, that a lot of interesting ideas were put forth by the corporation’s young workers, and some of their proposals were presented to Uralvagonzavod management even before the conference was over,’ the company press service says.
