At Barrick, we recognize that attracting, retaining and motivating the best employees is a critical factor for our business. An entrepreneurial and innovative spirit is central to our success. We are committed to developing the full potential of our employees; we offer a variety of career paths, challenging work assignments, career and skills development, attractive salaries and benefits tailored to each region.
Due to the geographic and cultural diversity of our workforce, we have developed a blend of global, regional and site-based Human Resources policies and programs. We take a global approach to workforce planning and talent management to form a consistent understanding of the labour markets in which we operate. We take a regional approach to compensation and benefits, training and employee relations to address the unique labour markets and social conditions in the countries where we operate. This combined approach has allowed us to implement targeted local programs that attract, retain and motivate our staff, while reflecting local norms. Although our policies do not apply to our long-term contractors, we do review contractor policies for alignment with ours prior to retaining them.
