In 2017, the Norilsk Nickel Group's average headcount totalled 78,000 people in Russia and 1,000 people abroad.
Most of the Russia-based employees (69%) work in Norilsk and the Taimyrsky Dolgano-Nenetsky Municipal District. Another 17% of the Group's Russian headcount work on the Kola Peninsula.

A decrease in the average headcount in 2017 was due to the disposal of non-core assets and implementation of a programme to improve labour productivity and reduce costs.
