With operations and development projects in eight countries, Kinross employs a diverse workforce.
Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics provides us with rigorous guidance to ensure that our hiring and contract tendering processes are free from any form of discrimination.
While our goal is to hire the best employee for the job, local employment is an important objective, and the majority of our operations have established practices that encourage and promote the hiring of qualified local candidates. At the end of 2011, approximately 77% of our senior managers and 97% of our employees were local hires from the host community, region, state, province or country.
At the end of 2011, our Board of Directors was composed of one female and nine males. We employed 27 women at the Director level and above in 2011, and 23 women at the Director level and above in 2010.
