At Teranga, we are training all of our employees to be safety champions.  After finishing 2014 with zero lost time injuries, our record now stands at more than 700 consecutive days worked without a lost time injury.  This is a testament to the high quality of our organization and a credit to all of our employees.  

Our People

We are committed to:

  • Building a workplace culture and environment that equips our people to develop to their potential and to perform by meeting and surpassing operational goals; we endeavor to foster an environment of accountability as well  as a commitment to a common vision and common  goals while maintaining and exceeding safety standards
  • Implementing the best human resources practices in the hiring, development and management of our workforce. Our hiring and employment practices are based on skills, experience and learning ability without discrimination based on age, gender, ethnicity, nationality, politics or religion
  • Building strong and positive relationships with our employees
  • Providing skill and career development to our employees to equip them in their roles and to develop and prepare them for career advancement opportunities; we are committed to the continued employment of Senegalese employees especially into positions of increased responsibility
  • Supporting the development of mining labour skills in Senegal. As the mining industry in Senegal is relatively new and Teranga is operating the only industrial gold mine in the country, we are working at developing partnerships with various institutions to provide relevant education and training opportunities for the future employees of the mining industry
  • Prioritizing employment opportunities for local and regional communities when feasible 

Human Resource Management

We aim to provide stable employment conditions to our employees whenever possible. One of our key objectives is to provide maximum employment opportunities to Senegalese employees as well as to provide them with clear pathways for career advancement and personal development. 

Learning & Development

Training and development is critical to the advancement of employee skills. In recent years, we have put an emphasis on establishing additional training programs as well as increasing the amount of training available to our employees. To address one of the major priorities of the Company – the development of our employees, Teranga has built a learning and development  centre on site. Our new training centre on site allows us to provide high quality programs to all levels of staff. Our intent is to deliver more targeted and integrated training to better support our key business priorities.

Teranga continues to strengthen partnerships with specific vocational schools and higher learning institutes within Senegal with the objective of identifying high-potential students, and to help schools better understand the variety of skills needed to work for a company such as Teranga.

Work Environment

We are committed to listening to our employees by collaborating closely with their representatives, our Worker Committees. Regular meetings occur throughout the year and discussions on numerous important topics take place and concerns are addressed.

Workforce Profile

With the integration OJVG employees following the acquisition in 2014, our workforce increased to 1,050 employees from 957 employees in 2013. The production departments, including mining and processing, comprise more than half of the Teranga team. Approximately 206 specialized contractors are also working on site. 

As of 2014, half of our workforce is comprised of local residents from the area surrounding the Sabodala operations, including the Tambacounda and Kedougou regions. Approximately one-third of our workforce is from Sabodala area (31 percent). This positive shift in our workforce illustrates the success of our dedicated efforts to recruit locally as well as train and promote employees. 

We remain committed to localizing our workforce from the communities surrounding our operations and more broadly within the Kedougou Region. Teranga expects that the number of Senegalese employees at Sabodala will continue to increase because of the Company’s growth as well as by our efforts to develop and progress our Senegalese employees.

The proportion of women within our workforce remains constant at approximately 10 percent. Women are significantly under-represented in the mining industry and Teranga is committed to the ongoing recruitment and support of women.
