Российские менеджеры: социально-экономические характеристики и позиции на рынке труда
The key problem of the social and economic situation in post-Soviet Russia implies that its future and the prospects of development of the new efficient post-industrial economy to a large extent depend on the successful creation of social and professional group of managers. In the article the primary attention is drawn to the analysis of socioeconomic characteristics of Russian managers, their social and occupational status dynamics, and labor market positions. The empirical base includes series of representative surveys of Russian population, conducted in January 1994, November 2002, and December 2006 under the direction of Professor O. Shkaratan, as well as the Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey database (RLMS 2006). We also relied on the information from a number of in-depth interviews with Moscow representatives of managers (conducted in 2005-2008).
