The required actual ratio of national staff vs expatriate is set as “70/30”. In the upcoming future the target ratio shall be “90/10”.

Increase of local content in personnel shall be achieved by:

  • Substitutions of expatriate employees by Kazakhstani employees;
  • Reduction of positions occupied by expatriate employees;
  • Reorganization of the company's organizational structure, leading to an increase of local content in personnel.
