Our people are the difference, our people are the business

At Kumba employees are central to the success of our business. Satisfied and fulfilled employees are productive, loyal and innovative contributors. We believe in sound labour relations which contribute positively to the sustainability of the business.

Developing our employees and communities

Through continuous engagement, we prioritise the needs of Kumba employees at all levels, as well as those of local and host communities.

At Kumba we strive to empower our employees and communities with knowledge, particularly regarding our ongoing performance results, because we believe that in doing so we can enhance a collective understanding of the business.

The education of our people is fundamental to a sustainable future for all.

Focus on employing local people

Kumba has a policy of employing people from local communities as far as this is possible; we only recruit people from outside the area if a specific skill is not available locally.

In the Northern Cape, where our two largest mines are located, our definition of local is quite specific. We consider employees as locals if their homes fall within a 50km radius of our mines, as the province is sparsely populated and the communities are dispersed.
