Work Culture

Our people are our greatest strength

Peñoles strives to guarantee an environment of responsibility, trust and collaboration, in which human and labor rights of all individuals are duly respected. This approach serves to promote our personnel’s professional growth, develop their potential and improve their performance.

Labor Equality and Non-Discrimination Policy

As part of our cultural evolution and in the pursuit of integral well-being for all our people, we are committed to promoting a culture that fosters respect for the dignity of all people. Our Labor Equality and Non-Discrimination Policy establishes organizational guidelines for the prevention, attention to, and eradication of sexual and labor harassment, as well as for the prevention and elimination of all forms of discrimination against any person, in order to promote equal treatment and opportunities for access, permanence, and promotion of all our personnel.

See our Labor Equality and Non-Discrimination Policy.

Peñoles prioritizes the integration and permanence of trustworthy personnel, highly-qualified and committed to our organizational values. To do this end, Peñoles
