Empowering our people focus areas

Promoting Diversity & Inclusion

We are committed to providing equal employment opportunities for all, regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, age or any other distinguishing characteristic or trait.

We believe diversity brings new and innovative ideas that contribute to our overall business success. We are particularly focused on bringing more women into our workforce and addressing the gender imbalance in an industry typically dominated by men. We believe that gender diversity and decent work for all are key to ensuring that the Company’s economic growth is both sustainable and  inclusive. Gender diversity is also linked to higher productivity levels and, in mining, improved environmental performance and safety records.

Recruitment, Retention & Engagement

Our people are key to the ongoing success of the business. Our ability to attract, retain and engage a highly skilled and specialist workforce is therefore a constant area of focus for us. Hochschild’s Human Resources team strives to provide an attractive and innovative place for employees to work. Alongside monitoring the market for the best talent, our team is committed to providing competitive remuneration, fostering a positive working environment, and enabling our people to develop and grow with us.

Innovations through technological solutions

We are dedicated to reducing our impact on the planet through the adoption of new technologies. In addition, we are continually looking for innovative ways of enhancing and improving our day-to-day mining operations in a safe and secure way. We strive to promote innovation in all aspects of our business to increase productivity, improve worker safety and identify opportunities for greater resource efficiency. In 2022, we launched the Innova campaign with the goal of reducing our environmental footprint by incorporating technologies and innovations proposed by our workers into our processes. We received proposals via our innovative projects portal, which will be evaluated to determine which projects are feasible for implementation.

Labour Relations

Our Code of Conduct sets out our undertakings to treat all employees and contractors fairly and to create a workplace that is free of harassment or intimidation. It equally outlines the behaviour we expect from our workers to contribute to and uphold this safe and collaborative working culture. As a foundation of everything that we do, we recognise and uphold the freedom of association, collective representation, just compensation, job security and development opportunities of our workforce.
