From the point of view of wages, “the sector needs to be competitive,” he explained.

He noted that sometimes the state Corporation “just not quite right doing it”. “We believe that bonuses should be linked to outcomes, that is, if in state-owned companies there is no result, if there is no profit, if there is no efficiency if there is no progress on the indicators, then, of course, some crazy prizes, bonuses should not be”, — said the head of the Ministry of labor.

According to Topilin, the question will not be regulated by law, but will operate the mechanism associated with different steps in the framework of the Board of Directors, which will be aimed at limiting bonuses in case of absence of profits and results. “If they will not be executed, so the state will have to apply other methods”, — said Topilin.
