Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Alamos’ proven track record, expansion plans, and strong and continuous production mean that “our kids could potentially be working here,” according to Fernando Gaspar, Human Resources Superintendent at Young-Davidson, one of Alamos’ Northern Ontario mining operations.
Alamos’ success is 100% a team effort, according to all accounts. The company’s 20th anniversary catchphrase, “Thrive With Us” shows just how successful and team driven the company is.
“When we think of 8,000 tonnes per day, naturally people think that’s just the production group…but that’s not true. It takes everybody on site…it’s everybody that comes to site, it’s their achievement. And we try and make sure that our workforce understands that,” emphasized Garry Bennett, Underground Operations General Foreman, Young-Davidson.
“What are the dominating values that we see as essential to be, not just a successful mining company, but a place where people can genuinely feel that they belong, and they want to be part of? It was asking those types of questions that helped us…develop the kind of culture that we have here at Alamos,” said John McCluskey, CEO and President of Alamos Gold.
According to an Alamos spokesperson, “People really are at the core of Alamos’ success. As the growth of Alamos Gold continues, we are looking for driven professionals who exhibit loyalty and a passion for the mining industry. We seek individuals who strive to make the most of their experience at Alamos Gold, while helping us build upon our existing and future successes.”
Currently, Alamos Gold has 1,900 global employees, between the Young-Davidson and Island Gold mining operations in Northern Ontario and its Mulatos mining operation in Mexico. “Safety, teamwork, environmental sustainability, integrity and commitment are Alamos’ core values, and you see those principles in decisions every day,” according to the company spokesperson.
“We support our employees and their careers by providing rewarding roles, placing an emphasis on recognition of professional potential, and opportunities for further development. We offer competitive remuneration and comprehensive benefits packages. The future at Alamos is very bright.”
