The Corporate University will enable training of the Companys employees in accordance with 250 educational programmes, with a variety of training formats.

Dmitry Osipov, Uralkali CEO, commented:

Uralkali has always paid great attention to the development of its employees, because only a competent team of professionals can lead the Company towards new victories. The opening of the University is another victory for the Company and an important step into the future: from now on, either each employee of Uralkali Group or Verkhnekamie resident have a great opportunity to receive special education, to improve their skills, to learn new careers demanded in the labour market of our region, to upgrade their labour grades and qualifications.

The educational license of the Corporate University now includes more than 250 programmes in various areas: learning new skills, upgrading the labour grades, qualifications, etc. As of today, Uralkali trains about 12,000 employees of the Group; more than 1,500 people learnt new careers in 2015.

In 2016, Uralkali has allocated about 27 million roubles to support the Universitys operation. Next year, the Company plans to spend about 34 million roubles for this purpose.
