The kind of staff they are
¹ 1-2 (2010)
Staff shortage in Sochi building branch was observed throughout 2009.
More than one could ever do.
According to Krasnodar region department of placement service, at present, there are 186 jobless builders in Sochi while total number of the unemployed on Kuban is about 24 thousand people, and only 5-7% are potential builders of the Olympic objects. The decision of a problem employers see in search and following relocation of experts from other regions of Russia or from other countries.
Experts for export
Mainly, the residents of Krasnodar region work on Sochi building now. There are few ways of attractiing of experts from other regions. The first is the cooperation with personnel agencies, each city has about twenty of them. But the majority of them do not work with candidates distantly. Big federal personnel agencies work in Sochi differently. But they deliver only qualified experts from the outside.
To get involved army of many thousands of ordinary workers by means of personnel agency is an impracticable task. Regional power tries too help with the decision. Krasnodar region department of placement service regularly holds special event, the biggest is the vacancy fair. But it is also ineffective: not more than 10% of the presented vacancies are filled, and there can be from one to one and a half thousand.
Guest workers: rescue or threat?
Last year in summer the representatives of Krasnodar Federal Migration Service Department declared at press conference, that there is predicted an inflow of about 100 thousand labour migrants to Sochi
According to the official statistics of Kuban Federal Migration Service Department (FMSD), 869 of foreigners were got involved into building of 13 Olympic objects by the end of December, 2009, their number has decreased to 703 persons by February, 1st, 2010.
To get guest workers involved is rather profitable for developer structures: they are efficient, unpretentious to food and accommodation, and the main thing, cost cheaply. Being afraid of the big inflow of citizens from abroad to Sochi, regional authorities have seriously tightened the control over them. The unique local FMS department of execution of working papers for residents of near abroad was opened in Russia.
Isn't that cute of them! The important personnel resource for Sochi is student's movement. Under the statements of «Olympstroy» stare company representatives, about 5 thousand students from different high schools of the country should take part in Olympic building. Last year the state company held the competition, where more than 400 student groups took part, 10 groups, total number of 200 persons, were selected as a result. This year all biggest high schools of the South Federal region will send pupils to Sochi.
In close liaison
According to experts it is possible to solve a problem of personnel shortage in Sochi only on conditions that the effective mechanism
Probably, in some years, the effective system of attraction of staff from all country will be realized. Already now Ministry of Health and Social Development of the Russian Federation prepares programs on retraining, training for a new profession and moving for a new place of work for jobless citizens. «But this process goes too slowly, for the course of preparation of the Olympic Games was not such tense», Natalia Bendarzhevskaya regrets.
Russia is great, and there is nobody to build
During the period from 2010 up to 2014 the labour needs of Sochi building branch will make 86,5 thousand people: 81,9 thousand (94,7%) need for workers, 4,6 thousand (5,3%) need for experts and employees. In 2010 it is planned to get involved 50 thousand people in building of the Olympic objects, 6612 of them would be foreign workers.
Average salary of the builder in Sochi is 19580 roubles.

Reserve resources base will be created
