Best Places To Work is a programme highlighting the most motivating businesses and the best employers worldwide. Every year in Russia, the programme cooperates with many organizations in various industries, helping them to evaluate, compare, improve their HR practices and have access to the tools and professional knowledge they need to ensure effective and sustainable changes in their organizations.
Decathlon is a French sports goods retailer. The company has more than 1,647 stores in about 300 cities in 57 countries and regions. The first Decathlon chain store in Russia was opened in 2006 in the Moscow region. To date, about 60 Decathlon stores have been opened in Russia in 25 cities, 22 of which are located in Moscow and the Moscow region. It is clarified that during the evaluation, 93 per cent of employees gave recommendation reviews about the organization, while for a typical Russian company this figure is 79 per cent.
“We are very proud of our culture. This is one of the cornerstones of Decathlon’s success both in Russia and in other countries of our presence. The Best Places to Work certificate once again confirms that we are on the right track,” the Head of the Decathlon division in Russia, Jeremy Angelard, said.
In turn, the HR Director of Decathlon Russia, Yekaterina Turkevich, stated that “the goal of the company is not only to make sports more accessible to many people around the world but also to create a working environment and atmosphere for our internal clients – employees.”
