Gold Fields believes that a diverse workforce makes us stronger and is committed to fostering and empowering a diverse and inclusive culture where you can bring your best self to work everyday

At Gold Fields, we recognise that creating a strong culture, where diversity is actively encouraged and embraced, allows each of us to benefit from the knowledge, experience, creativity and innovation of every individual. These attributes enable us to operate and succeed in a dynamic environment, where diverse challenges and communities are part of everyday life.

Gold Fields has a strong commitment to creating fair, equitable and respectful workplaces, where employees are supported in an inclusive environment; are given recognition based on merit and encouraged and supported in unlocking their potential.

Gender Diversity

At GFA, we know that the best way to improve our culture is by continuing to invest in increasing the diversity and inclusiveness of our workforce. 

Gender equality aligns deeply with Gold Field's purpose to create enduring value beyond mining and we are committed to increasing the representation of women in all roles across core mining and leadership in our business, aiming for 25% representation of women in our business by 2025 and 30% by 2030.

We are investing in retention strategies that focus on talent development, mentoring and coaching, and by providing excellent benefits, including workplace flexibility, 18 weeks parental leave, generous purchase leave options, and a range of benefits focused on employee wellbeing. 

We also have a Supporting Women at Gold Fields (SWAG) Employee Resource Group to connect women in the business with each other.

As part of our commitment to developing a diverse future workforce, we're also investing in programs that encourage women into stem fields at an early age through bursaries, trainee, apprentice and graduate programs, so that we can mentor and develop the next generation of talent throughout our business.

 

 

We've made a really good start in ensuring that our business more closely reflects the makeup of our society, and we also recognise that more needs to be done to achieve an even representation across not only gender but cultural background, sexuality, age, physical and neurological ability, and other attributes that will increase our competitiveness at all levels of our business. 

Our Respectful Workplaces #listen campaign will be rolled out in 2022 to encourage conversations and commitment across our business to creating an inclusive, respectful workplace in which everyone feels safe, and in which everyone belongs. 

We are actively involved in multiple industry development initiatives including WIMWA mentoring, STEM training, GIG, Australia Mining Club, as well as being a Work180 endorsed employer.  

“it's an exciting journey to be on. A lot of organisations aren't where we are. A lot of organisations are miles behind us. For me, it's very exciting to be able to be able to ensure that the teams on our site particularly are able to move forward and collectively and ensure that everyone can feel safe in the workplace and bring up anything that's an issue, but also, they can support each other as well.” Annie Llewellyn, Alternate Underground Manager, quote from IWD.
