The article presents methodical approach to form a strategy of human resources effective management for an oil company. We propose to choose a strategy according to the level of efficiency of human resource involvement and level of company’s long-term stability.

The efficiency of human resources involvement is estimated based on integrated index. The article provides a description of six stages of integrated index calculation. We propose an equation to calculate integrated index as weighed mean of simple indexes with use of the procedure of standardization. Simple indexes are selected by the method of step-by-step regression.

We also propose using integrated index to estimate a level of a company’s long-term stability. The following spheres of long-term stability are pointed: production and technology, market, finance and economy, investment. Within each sphere the system of simple indexes of long-term stability is formed and the direction of positive dynamics of indexes is shown. We offer a scoring model for calculating an oil company’s long-term stability based on deviation of simple indexes from reference values.

The authors present grading scales to estimate a level of efficiency of human resources involvement and a level of an oil company’s long-term stability. The choice of strategy of human resources effective management for an oil company is developed using strategy offered by M. Amstrong.

On the example of the Bashneft Company experimental approbation of the offered approach is carried out. The system of simple index of human resources involvement efficiency is created. The integrated index of efficiency of human resources involvement and integrated index of the Company’s long-term stability are calculated. By results of calculations the average efficiency of human resources involvement and the average level of long-term stability are established. The strategy focused on achievement of high rates of development is recommended to the Company.
