At the session of the discussion club at the Moscow Polytechnic University, with the participation of the Higher School of Management and Law and the Marketers Guild, a challenging and ambitious task was set: to find algorithms for integrating folk and art crafts into the contemporary culture of Russia. For marketers, it was a big surprise to learn about the existence of such a unique professional direction, which also needs marketing. We are used to dealing with commercial structures, sometimes less often, with non-profit structures and the same marketing. Marketing of this direction has a special meaning and content. This article is an attempt to analyze the current situation with folk and art crafts in Russia and to formulate goals and tasks, which marketers should solve.

Nowadays the studies of practical application of marketing tools with regard to the staff of modern Russian organizations are rather rare due to their specificity: the need of a national scale, the requirements for concentrated sample, the lack of immediate economic benefit. At the same time the implementation of the full marketing functions of corporate staff management requires detailed justification. The author implemented a specialized study describing the practical experience and the results of advanced marketing methods and tools when applying for a job, in the course of employment and dismissal of staff of the largest Russian organizations. The results of the study will be useful to practitioners and researchers of labor productivity growth based on the low-budget management and marketing technologies.
