The Corporate University together with the Central Infrastructure Business Unit of Russian Railways and railway universities of Russia organized the annual project "Forum of Generations-2020".
The project is aimed at forming the talent pool of the Russian Railways Holding and develops interaction between the company's mentors and future employees – students of the industry universities. For the first time, the "Generation Forum" was held in the autumn of last year and received international recognition of the European Foundation for Management Development – EFMD in the "Talent Development" category of the "Excellence in Practice – 2020" competition in May 2020.
This year, all activities within the framework of the forum were held in November-December in the new remote format on the eight online platforms. The participants were more than 1,700 target students from nine railway universities and more than 670 mentors from the Central Infrastructure Business Unit of Russian Railways. Based on the results of the events, a rating of the best participants was formed. It includes about 90 target students and the same number of mentors. In 2021, they will take part in the projects of the Central Infrastructure Business Unit to improve the efficiency of the adaptation system.
The 2020 Forum continued to form a community between target students and mentors of the Central Infrastructure Business Unit. By participating in online events, transport university graduates get acquainted with the opportunities for career development in the company "Russian Railways". In the educational part of the forum, the Corporate University faculty held master classes on the topic "Theory of Generations": participants answered questions of an interactive quiz, performed tasks of a business game on building communications and developing corporate competencies.
"Forum of Generations" is a unique project, both in terms of the regional coverage of participants and in terms of the content. It supports one of the key values of the Russian Railways company – "Excellence": it contributes to the maintainance and continuity of the unique production experience in the development of the Russian transport industry.
