Our people are our most important resource. We are committed to providing a safe, inclusive work environment in which employees are valued and have opportunities for a rewarding career as well as learning and skills development. We aim to recruit and retain a highly qualified, skilled and diverse workforce, with a culture that puts safety first and enables people to realise their full potential.
Sibanye-Stillwater is a labour-intensive business, employing and contracting almost 85,000 people at its SA and US operations in a wide variety of trades and professions from miners to mechanics, accountants, geologists, IT specialists and more. Employees, therefore, are integral to the achievement of our operational targets and, ultimately, to the successful delivery of our strategy to create superior value for all stakeholders.
We pay competitive salaries that, in addition to a basic wage, include significant variable incentives and other benefits, which enable our employees to provide for their families and indirectly, the broader community. Sibanye-Stillwater provides employment and rewarding career growth opportunities as well as opportunities for personal development.
Recruiting from local communities is a priority with the salaries and wages paid enabling employees to provide for their families, and by extension, to contribute economically to the broader community.
Our human resources model is designed to help us achieve our business strategy and promote a CARES values-based organisation. Our people strategy includes leadership development and training programmes, as well as executive development designed to develop a pool of effective and aligned leaders, encompassing coaching, leading for impact, strategy, transformation and stakeholder engagement.
We aim to equip our employees with the skills and resources necessary to enable them to perform at their peak. Culture and values have been identified as material focus areas and we strive to instil a values-based culture where the foundation of decision-making and behaviour is our CARES values: namely, commitment, accountability, respect, enabling and safety.
