Creating meaningful livelihoods for our employees is one of the most powerful positive social benefits of our business, especially when we are able to create new opportunities for women, youth, and residents of remote areas with limited alternatives.
Our operations employ more than 9,300 people in a wide variety of trades and professions – from geologists and miners, to engineers, electricians, mechanics, accountants, information technology specialists, and more. Over 97% of our workforce are nationals from our host countries.
These are well-paying jobs and our employees earn significantly above the average wage in their host countries. The skills, knowledge, and experience our employees gain while working for Kinross help them succeed throughout their careers.
