Our business success depends on our ability to recruit and retain the most promising employees – people who share our commitment to sustainable development that benefits all stakeholders.
We take great care in every step of the employment process, with emphasis on equality, diversity, workplace safety and employee welfare.
The vast majority of Alamos employees are employed full-time, in Canada, Mexico, Turkey and the United States.
From the global employee engagement survey conducted in 2013, our employees in Mexico and at the Toronto head office helped shape local programs and policies including employee recognition programs for tenure, safety and innovation.
We actively pursue the hiring of local people, in support of our efforts to develop and maintain positive relationships with our host communities and countries. To attract strong candidates, we pay above-average starting wages. At our Mulatos mine, approximately 80% of management and 100% of our non-management employees are hired from Mexico. In Turkey, all our employees are hired within Turkey. The same hiring practices apply at our projects in Canada, the USA and Mexico.
We put a priority on using locally sourced products and services whenever practical, to benefit the regional economy. We wish to ensure that our presence in the local and regional economy provides the maximum in direct, economic, and social benefits to individuals, their families and other community members.
