The new project was the result of cooperation between the Barrikada Combine and the Baltic Recruitment Company, which on instructions from the enterprise hires out the necessary number of specialist workers with the appropriate qualifications for a particular type of work. Within the legal framework, the system works like this: the workers are employed as staff of the Baltic Recruitment Company, which handles all personnel procedures connected with paying wages, making tax deductions, and registering labour relations. The recruiting company is bound to the enterprise by an agreement to provide services. “Developing this system from the legal point of view is not so simple,” said Yelena Gennadievna Medvyedieva, personnel director at the Barrikada Combine, “because so far the Tax Codex of the Russian Federation considers the idea of ‘leasing staff’ as a purely administrative concept.”
At present, more than fifty people from Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Bashkortostan work at the Combine under the leasing scheme. In the words of Yelena Gennadievna, this system can save the enterprise when there is peak demand for labour and when work moves on to a two-shift or a round-the-clock system. In times of necessity, the workforce at the factory can be increased by 30 to 40 people for two to three days, who work for the enterprise under a fixed-term contract. It is also an important fact that if the Combine refuses to employ a worker who has been taken on under the leasing system, there is no need to pay the three-month out-of-work allowance, since the worker is not considered to be out of work — his employment is guaranteed.
Given an eight-hour working day and a five-day working week, a moulder, who is taken on under the leasing scheme, costs the enterprise 11,500 roubles a month. This is the amount that the factory pays the recruiting company. It includes compensation paid to the workers for meals, accommodation, work clothes, travel to work, pay and agency service charges. In other words, the workers are given full social protection. Bearing in mind that the average wages for workers at the Combine in St. Petersburg amount to 14,000 roubles, the cost of employees found by recruiters is not high.
In the words of Yelena Gennadievna, staff leasing is not a panacea; all methods should be used for finding staff and working with personnel, since it is a systematic approach to solving the problems of staff shortages that produce a good and, more importantly, a stable result.
