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.

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