Back to list
JSC “Vostochny Port,” the largest Russian specialized terminal with high-tech coal handling and a member of the coal port holding “Managing Port Company,” is implementing a corporate social program to improve the living conditions of the port workers. In 2018, six employees of the company participated in the program.
Both young and promising workers and experts as well as highly qualified and experienced employees of JSC “Vostochny Port” can take part in the program.
The important factors to be considered in the program are the absence of one’s own house or living in a room with an area below the standard area required by the regulations on family members (in accordance with the regional standard for living spaces).
A special commission composed of the competent staff of JSC “Vostochny Port,” including the heads of departments of the company, determines the applicants for participation in the program. Under the program conditions, JSC “Vostochny Port” provides employees with an opportunity to purchase housing on favorable terms.
JSC “Vostochny Port” is a backbone enterprise of the Nakhodka Municipality. More than 1,800 people work here at present time, and 500 more job placements will be created in the region upon the commissioning of Phase 3 of the Coal Handling Terminal. The success of our stevedoring company results from the daily work and high professionalism of the team. It is important that our employees feel support and strive to devote their careers and lives to “Vostochny Port.” That is why we have developed a new housing program, and for this reason, we are expanding the corporate social package,” said Vadim Baibak, the Managing Director of JSC “Vostochny Port.”
One of the first participants of the housing program of JSC “Vostochny Port” is Andrei Smirnov, an electric and gas welder, who has been working for the company for 9 years.
“We did not have our own living space. For nine years that we live in Nakhodka, we moved to rental apartments several times. We are very pleased that JSC "Vostochny Port" provided us with the opportunity to purchase our own housing, a 52 square meter apartment in Vrangel. The agreement has been already signed, and now my family and I are getting ready to move to our own home,” said the participant of the housing program.
JSC “Vostochny Port” is on the list of socially responsible organizations of the Russian Federation. The support of workers and their families is stipulated by a collective agreement, which is an exemplary document for water transport enterprises used as the basis of an industry tariff agreement.
