Developing our leaders
The Kinross Way of leadership and leadership development establishes the behaviours and practices for employees across our operations to “lead at your level” of the organization. To support “lead at your level”, we focus on the development of our supervisors and management, including core skills training, personal leadership and language skills training, and continued to deliver programs across the Company:
- The Generation Gold program continues to play an important role in our recruitment of recent graduates and helping Kinross develop a global workforce. Kinross’ Exploration group has launched a program modelled on Generation Gold which provides two-year rotations to recent geology graduates, and our U.S.-based operations have established a local graduate program K2Gold. The Generation Gold program, has also been expanded to Ghana and Brazil, and is being adopted by industry peers.
- In 2013, we introduced a Global Talent Champions program to support succession planning and help identify potential candidates in key areas of activity.
- In September 2013, we launched a formal in-depth needs assessment to better understand the leadership landscape and identify leadership gaps across the Company, and have developed a leadership strategy that will first be launched on a pilot basis in the Toronto office in 2014.
