Employee Education, Training and Development
We provide a wide range of training, skills and career development opportunities that promote professional competency, personal growth and safety, culture-building initiatives and structured performance management evaluations.
The performance of Kinross senior management is evaluated, in part, on how well they attract, retain and develop talent in their respective teams and organizations.
Developing our Leaders
Executing successful leadership development programs is vital to motivating and retaining Kinross employees. In 2010, in response to input to our global employee survey, we introduced training that focuses on fostering leadership behaviours that are consistent with Kinross’ values. As part of this process, we created a set of leadership practices that provide guidelines to aid us in hiring, evaluating and developing leaders at Kinross.
We also advanced a new global curriculum to support the development of supervisor and management leadership. Learning modules include a leadership and supervisory skills core program, and online business management, personal leadership and language skills training. Curriculum development will continue through 2012.
In 2011, we formalized the on-boarding process specific to regional vice-presidents and general managers. Under this and other programs, we provided approximately 4,100 hours of leadership training at the corporate level in 2011.
