The Mosaic Company, 2012 Sustainability Report
Mosaic’s Representative
Workforce Strategy
Mosaic’s employees are richly diverse in their
skills, experiences and backgrounds. We are
actively working to be more representative of our
communities around the world. We par tner with
and invest in local and indigenous communities
to develop cooperative relationships with
people of all backgrounds, origins and economic
status. In fiscal 2012, Mosaic published our
Commitment to Inclusion.
Saskatchewan currently has the fastest-growing
economy in Canada, making it dif ficult to keep
up with staf fing needs at our expanding potash
locations. Mosaic’s Representative Workforce
Strategy team in Canada is working to meet
this challenge by increasing the numbers of
aboriginal people within all segments of the
Mosaic workforce, establishing an Aboriginal
Procurement Strategy to ensure aboriginal
suppliers have access to supplier oppor tunities,
and strengthening par tnerships with aboriginal
communities, development entities, training and
educational institutions.
Mosaic has made progress toward this strategy
through outreach ef for ts to First Nations and
métis communities, as well as Tribal Councils
within close proximit y of our mine sites. We
are also working to develop stronger and
more productive relationships with aboriginal
institutions, agencies and organizations
such as the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of
Technologies (SIIT) and the Gabriel Dumont
Institute. One example is our suppor t of SIIT’s
introductor y mining course, where Mosaic
of fered aboriginal par ticipants a two-week
practicum and hired six of the 11 program
par ticipants.
