Abstract:

Despite being popular across the world, the concept of family-friendly policy is not associated with business in Russia. Our research focuses on the corporate sector and its potential to change the demographic context in Russia. The aim of the study is to identify regional models of the Russian corporate sector development and suggest pilot regions to start family-friendly policies aimed at increasing the birth rate. We used variables which characterise the corporate sector development in Russian regions and applied the hierarchical cluster analysis. Regional values of the indicators for all 85 Russian regions were analysed. We revealed 5 clusters and then additionally profiled the clusters selected according to the Total Fertility Rate. The analysis allowed us to identify two clusters of Russian regions which may become pilot ones when promoting family-friendly policy practices in their enterprises. We argue that a family-friendly policy in these clusters’ enterprises might become: relevant for employees; quite affordable for enterprises; a new effective tool of the demographic policy since the birth rates here are the lowest in Russia. .
