Being able to attract, retain, and support world-class staff, - from the boardroom to frontline operations, is critical for our long-term success.

Supporting our people is the best way to help them to achieve their full potential. Our newways of working are designed to give our people the confidence, security, and space to realize their aspirations.
2021 has seen further steps to improve our approach to talent attraction, retention, and development. This has included an enhanced Employee Value Proposition (EVP) with a new broad-banding structure, a refreshed salary structure, the introduction of our Dual Career Path, new job titles, and revised HR policies.
We are proud of our staff, and we know they understand aspects of our business better than anyone else. Providing opportunities to make suggestions and comments is essential to our business so that we can improve working practices and address current and future challenges.
As a company, we are always keen to hear from staff. This year, we strengthened our engagement tools to create more opportunities for our people to share their ideas to improve the way we work.
In 2021 we ran the biennial Ma’aden Employee Engagement Survey, with 85% of employees participating. This generated valuable information which we measure against 15 benchmarked dimensions.
Furthermore, this year we also launched the Ma’aden Organizational Health Index Survey giving a precision platform to deep dive into specific issues identified by our staff.
As a result, we are now experiencing greater levels of communication between employees and departments on issues such as health and safety, improving processes, and driving forward the quality of our operations. We will continue to strengthen the ability of employees to contribute and the ability of managers to evaluate their suggestions and respond to them.
