Our People

We recognize that our accomplishments as a company are made possible through the accomplishments of our people. As a reputable corporate citizen, we generate local employment and opportunities for people to develop their careers; train employees to acquire new skills; and open doors to women, under-represented groups, and previously disadvantaged people. We foster positive and productive engagement with employees and provide safe workplaces. Investing in our people attracts and retains talented individuals and grants them the dignity to provide for themselves and their families.

“It fills me with great pride when I see and experience how our employees practice our values of fairness, respect, transparency and accountability to fuel the success and growth of B2Gold. The collective efforts of everyone who works at B2Gold have enabled us to achieve the great results shared in this Report, our sixth annual edition of Raising the Bar.”

Local Employment

“Local communities depend on (and expect) their industrial neighbours to provide livelihoods and opportunities for skills development.”

Ken Jones, Director of Sustainability, B2Gold Corp.

Our commitment to local employment is stated in our People Management Policy and is guided by our Local Content Performance Standard, which promotes strategies to enhance employment directly from the regions in which we operate. Our local employment objectives consider the demographics and empowerment initiatives of our respective national settings, while embedding our inclusive culture to attract talent from around the world.

We continue to maintain high local employment rates by targeting recruitment efforts at local and national levels. Employment opportunities for unskilled roles give preference to neighbouring communities.
