This page lists a few details about the Database, as this has been requested by a few users. The origin of this initiative was started from the several sources available on the web that had started listing companies retreating, unfortunately most of them did not provide with sources of information, and they were missing important information. Particularly, I tries to have a view of the possible impact of employees in Russia and Belarus, following the HR focus of this initiative.

So here explained how the database is structured.

Company Decision

| --- | --- |

We are not taking a stance on the type of decision that is being taken by the different companies, also because often there is a lack of specification of why the decision is being taken. Considering also the complexity of announcing the decision to Employees in Russia and Belarus, this list is provided especially to support HR Professionals in understanding what others are doing.

Below there is an article that examines the complexity of navigating these choices.

Decision Base

As of March 28, 2022 a new field has been added to the database, to check the basis on which the company has taken the decision. This should help contribute to the discussion of “purpose-led” vs. other types of decisions. Note, the field will be retroactively filled over the next week. Also note that it will be filled in solely when the company declares its main motive in official statements.

Employee Data

Not all companies release information about their employee base in the country. In some cases we have been able to recover the information from other sources. In some other cases we are using LinkedIn as a source of data, knowing it is more accurate for certain industries and job levels. In other cases and estimation is provided (for example, for some retailers we have data about number of stores...).

<aside> 👉 Note: we try to find out the amount of employees that might be impacted by the choice. In many cases where there is a local partnership in place (such as in the case of franchising agreements), the employees are not “technically” employed by the brand that is discontinuing operations, but still impacted by the decision.
