Social responsibility of businesses includes the programs and events needed for a full-fledged life. This includes provision of employees’ social protection, organization of rest and medical service, and the main thing improvement of the conditions of work. All this is available at one of the famous enterprises in the country the Atyrau Oil Refinery (ANPZ), headed by its general director Talgat Baitaziyev.
The slogan "ANPZ is stability, reliability and confidence in future!" confirms the effectiveness of all production and social programs. The plant’s employees work at one of the best enterprises in the republic in terms of health, safety and environment performance. The most favorable conditions for realizing their full potential have been created here. Annually, the plant directs dozens of specialists on training courses to improve their professional skills and widen knowledge. The privileges are granted to the employees studying at higher educational institutions and at postgraduate courses without giving up job.
The plant’s leadership considers as an important factor in stabilizing social and labor relations the increase in motivation for working, therefore it is constantly solving the issues of increasing wages and bonus payments. Remuneration of labor at АNPZ is made according to the labor legislation, the collective agreement, the rules for remuneration of labor and the rules for social support of АNPZ’s employees at the expense of means provided for by the remuneration of labor in the partnership’s budget.
Changes in the remuneration of labor made in 2011 regarding compensation of taxes and other mandatory payments to the budget have made it possible to increase net remuneration by 25 %.

The plant’s leadership is regularly solving social issues. For every man one of the main things is housing conditions. For the last years the employees moved to the 80-apartment house at Auezov Street and the 72apartment house in Zhylgorodok; in 2009 to the cottage town consisting of 40 houses. In 2011, the construction has started of the new 80-apartment house which will be completed by the end of 2012. The care of the children is one of the primary points of our activity.
Over 400 children go annually to the rest camps in Almaty, Anapa, Коkshetau and other towns.
