IGO recognises the value of developing our employees to achieve their potential.
We support and encourage our employees to pursue further study in their area of expertise and offer study assistance for approved courses.
We also seek to offer internal promotional opportunities to our employees within the Company. Retaining, developing and expanding the skills and experience of our existing employee group has been, and will continue to be, important to us and part of our commitment to our teams.
Our graduates and apprentices are supported with the experience and skills of their mentor and the teams within which they work. Our graduates have the additional assistance, at an organisational level, of our dedicated Graduate Co-ordinator. Through the Graduate and Apprentice programmes we seek opportunities to offer secondments and other learning opportunities to increase skill sharing and development and increase the depth and breadth of their experience.
IGO seeks to remain competitive on salaries across the Company. To ensure that working for us is as rewarding financially as it is in terms of career development we benchmark salaries internally and externally, assess market conditions annually and are participants to a number of industry organisations and remuneration databases.
