The attraction of human resources for work in the Arctic is today an urgent task of the state level. It's not just about attracting people to the move, but also about keeping people already working in the region. The task is complex and should include many parameters: state guarantees, corporate social responsibility of companies, living conditions in the region and others. Many foreign companies already have experience in attracting people to regions different from their usual living environment. At the same time, workers are often forced to work in unfavorable or severe climatic conditions (extremely low or extremely high temperatures) far from the main infrastructure facilities. It is necessary to investigate the existing methods of assessing workers' compensation for moral or physical "damage" in connection with work in difficult conditions, away from home, friends and habitat. The experience of staff motivation to work in unfavorable climatic conditions of the largest companies of Canada ImperialOil, RioTinto, Ledcor was studied in this paper. Companies in cooperation with the state widely used corporate social responsibility programs for their employees: high level of salary, non request for work experience, construction of houses and other infrastructure in the regions of presence, simplified procedure for obtaining citizenship for workers from foreign countries. The identified methods of attracting human resources have been analyzed. The recommendations for Russian companies working in the Arctic are given.
