Eurasian Resources Group this week gathered together 250 young employees from its operations across the world for the Group’s international Youth Forum.

Production manufacturers and plant managers from Kazakhstan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, South Africa, Mauritius, Mozambique, Brazil, and the Netherlands attended the event.

The objective of the Forum, which was held in Bayanaul in the Pavlodar Region of Kazakhstan, was to better integrate ERG’s young employees into the Group’s corporate culture and establish a Group-wide Youth Council. The theme of the event was “ERG’s Cultural Code: A New Generation”.

ERG’s employees discussed how the corporate culture contributes to achieving the company’s strategic goals and finding solutions to modern-day challenges, the company said in a media release.

 “I am delighted to see that the Forum has united ERG’s talented young employees from all over the world,” said Benedikt Sobotka, CEO of ERG.

“We recognise that the young people of today will shape the world of tomorrow, and ERG is committed to investing in our young employees and supporting their growth and progression.”

“It is our young employees who will help the company guide and shape the cultural code of ERG and help us all understand how we can reach our most ambitious goals,” said Chief People Officer Inna Gubareva.

Of ERG’s 75,000 employees and contractors, more than 38% are workers under the age of 35.
