(PRESS RELEASE) This year’s rating of Russia’s best employers is Forbes’ second. In 2020, in addition to working conditions and corporate social and environmental policies the final score factors in expert opinion. These were heads of reputable Russian universities, such as RANEPA, NES and Skolkovo School of Business, and the publication’s board members.

Compiling this year’s rating, Forbes paid special attention to charity and sponsorship, as well as to the environmental policy of companies.

Forbes ranked ALROSA second in the list of the best employers in the country with 63.7 points. According to the study, the diamond miner’s spending on charity and support of local communities in 2019 were one of the highest in the ranked corporates.

In 2019, ALROSA’s social investments totalled RUB 12 bn, including pension payments and contributions under regional development programmes, corporate social programmes for employees and their families, as well as about 500 social and charitable projects. The Company’s environmental expenses amounted to RUB 7.7 bn.

ALROSA remains on the FTSE4Good index and maintains a BB rating from MSCI ESG, which evaluates companies’ environmental, social, and corporate governance performance. On top of that, the Company is among the Top 10 environmentally responsible mining companies in Russia as ranked by WWF Russia and a joint project of UNDP, GEF and the country’s Ministry of Natural Resources. In 2019, ALROSA received a Diamond Empowerment Fund (DEF) award for community stewardship.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
