Our People

People are our core strength. More than any other factor, our success depends on their capabilities and commitment. We are focused on attracting and retaining experienced and skilled talent with a culture that puts safety at its core and supports people to reach their potential.

2015 Highlights

  • We implemented a behaviour-based competency and leadership development program, and piloted it at our Musselwhite and Peñasquito mines.
  • We successfully rolled out the second phase of our Creating Choices initiative, called the Growing Choices program, to sites and offices.
  • We created the Global Recruitment Standards to ensure our recruitment is fair, consistent, non-discriminatory and aligned with best practices.
