08/18/2017 | North-Western Phosphorous Company Celebrates its Anniversary

On 12 August, NWPC AO celebrated its 12th anniversary with an athletics festival hosted at the Apatity municipal stadium. Over two hundred Company employees participated in the sports event. Participants from the Company’s departments and sections battled for first place in football and volleyball, a relay race and a rope pulling contest. The day also involved family sports and individual events.
In her welcoming remarks, NWPC CEO for Human Resources and General Issues Nadezhda Heifetz said she was proud of the Company for showing its commitment to active lifestyles by celebrating its anniversary with an athletics festival. The date of the event was also symbolic, since August 12 is Athletes Day in Russia.

NWPC’s social policy focuses on employee health and wellness and providing opportunities to engage in sports and gymnastics. The Company pays for employee memberships at pools and gyms in Apatity and Kirovsk and leases facilities for employees to play football, basketball and table tennis. The Company holds annual CEO Cup competitions in alpine skiing, football and paintball. Employees who play other sports and participate in major contests also receive Company support.
