Moscow is cool

The managing director of one of the world's largest consumer goods companies said recently: "Moscow is a cool place." She was not referringto the climate but to the atmosphere of excitement and of things happening. This comment has serious and positive implications for human resources issues. In the past a posting to Russia was not always regarded as a career-enhancing move or an enjoyable prospect, but this has now changed. The manager mentioned above says she is "bombarded with requests from colleagues to come and work for me in Russia". One German bank reckons that in yet 2003 there were some 30,000 western expatriates whose term in Moscow was scheduled to end and who did not want to leave. Now that business is booming and is easier to conduct, western executives are keen to go there. This is also important when seen against a background in which salaries for Russian staff are rising and some companies are considering increasing the number of expatriate workers.
