The article shows intermediate results of the joint scientific and practical project implemented by the authors on the formation of conditions for enhancing the innovative activity of shipyard personnel. Despite the stable position of the company on the market, the results of the SWOT analysis identified problems in the company’s internal environment related to personnel management: aging of personnel, lack of personnel development system, weak feedback and others. The authors came to the conclusion that it is necessary to introduce a modern system of personnel management, including such elements as personnel selection, business evaluation and development of human resources, adaptation and formation of the personnel reserve, motivation and stimulation, the formation of an innovative corporate environment, etc. This will allow not only to organize personnel management in accordance with the requirements of the ship repair industry, but, at the same time, will increase the innovative activity of personnel. To realize this goal, the authors propose the use of HR marketing as an organizing principle in the formation of innovative personnel activities. The conducted questioning of the personnel of the company with the use of the indicator of Kirton made it possible to draw a conclusion about a sufficient share of innovators in the total mass of shipyard workers who could become a base for the implementation of the innovation process. The novelty of the author’s approach is to refine the indicator scale in order to clarify the characteristics of the staff.
