In order to maintain viability in conditions of shocks and increasing environmental uncertainty, each business needs to solve a number of problems, i.e. a change in the strategy, clarification of objectives, search for options for anti-sanctions measures, streamlining expenditures, etc., which determines the need to change the target orientation and structure of employees' activities.

The article describes a methodological approach to adaptation of personnel activities to emerging external challenges, which is based on the integration of the system and project approaches. The article discloses the principles of subjectivity, optionality and cyclicity, which need to be followed when using the proposed methodological approach. The results of the personnel activity adaptation achieved with the use of this methodical approach at the SUEK-Khakassia LLC, which consist in the development of personnel competence and obtaining economic effect, are presented.
