People management

“No aspect of our performance is more important than the health and safety of our people.” 

Mark Bristow, CEO

Working towards a zero harm workplace, ensuring that at least 90% of our workforce is drawn from host countries and communities and putting in place the world-class training required to run a modern gold mine are all top priorities for Randgold. It is no surprise that these issues rank as some of the highest priority issues for our internal and external stakeholders alike in our materiality assessment. 
In 2017, we had a workforce of approximately 12 000 workers and this chapter explains our approach and performance in regards to all major human capital issues including: 
  • safety
