The 6 Core Values – helping make KCGM a better place to work!
Our 6 Core Values are a very important part of KCGM and are the foundations upon which our culture is built. Our 6 Core Values have been designed to create a clear understanding of what is important, valued and acceptable at KCGM.
1. Lead in safety, the environment and social responsibility - Setting maintaining and continually improving standards by being conscious of the impact of the actions that yourself and those around you take.
2. Behave like an owner - Treating people, equipment, everything as your own, and showing that you really care.
3. Act with a sense of urgency - Getting the job done in a safe, timely manner by prioritizing, using initiative and using available resources effectively.
4. Be a team player - Working together to achieve the same goal by respecting, communicating and contributing in an honest, open, supporting and trusting environment.
5. Continually improve - Positively evolving and being open to change so that we can remain profitable and competitive.
6. Deliver results - Consistently delivering on identified targets and objectives.
Ultimately, our Core Values are the guideposts for decision making, actions and behaviours at KCGM. Our expectation is that our workforce will incorporate the Values into everything we do on site and in the local community.
Individual Core Values Interpretations from the KCGM Workforce.
Hear what some of our employees have to say about the KCGM Core Values.
What does “Lead in safety, the environment & social responsibility” mean to you?
“Safety, environment and social responsibility is everyone’s job at KCGM - let’s all take a lead and be courageous.”
Damien Scolyer - Mineral Processing
“Taking appropriate actions that will help ensure that my teammates go home safe everyday, and being responsible for actions that I personally make both inside and outside the work environment.”
Natasha England - Mining
“KCGM and Employees should, to the best of their ability try and strive, in these areas to make the work, home and town environment a safe and happy place to be. This should not stop when you leave work, but should continue in the everyday things you do at home and out socialising.”
Marion McConnell - Corporate Services
What does “Behaving like an owner” mean to you?
“Behaving in a conscientious way, striving to assist the company to achieve its goals by constantly revaluating the way that we work and operate. Being as passionate about this business as you would be about your own.”
Rob Kidd - Engineering
“Treat the company, values, reputation, and property and aims as if they are the values, reputation, property and aims that you want for your own home or family.”
Angela Whitehead – Environment, Health & Safety
“Means that you carry out your work in a way that you would do if it was your own place - and therefore you work at a higher level and with more pride in your tasks e.g. checking over invoices thoroughly as if it were your own money.”
Petina Wallace - Environment, Health & Safety
What does “Act with a sense of urgency” mean to you?
“Act with a sense of urgency means to do as quickly as possible, if something is urgent it is of high priority and needs to be responded to immediately. As long as whatever it is that is urgent is done within a safe guideline.”
Kirsty Wightman - Mineral Processing
“Sense of urgency means to not drag your feet, when there are things to do, do it, that’s what you’re paid for. I find acting with a sense of urgency also makes the day go a lot quicker and makes you realise just what you can achieve. This is a value I live outside KCGM also, as it seems to create more time in a day, so if I can get the chores out of the way leaves more time to enjoy life.”
Emily Bagley - Corporate Services
“Daily I plan for what we’ll be doing in a week’s time.”
Wayne Francis, Mt Charlotte
What does “Be a team player” mean to you?
“We know our goals and we achieve them together because we cannot achieve our production and safety targets by ourselves. We need a team of people. I do believe that if everybody thinks about us as a team, it is easier for us to reach our goals every day.”
Nick Lucanas - Mining Load & Haul
“Being prepared to contribute to the team before you need to be asked.”
Garry Oliver - Environment, Health & Safety
“To me, being a team player means doing what is best for the team and doing my best. This means doing what the team has decided to do, whether if it is my own personal preference or not. It also means, whatever my role is and whatever I have been asked to do, doing it as well as I can.”
Geoff Mazzucchelli - Mineral Processing
What does “Continually improve” mean to you?
“Finding better alternatives for every single job we do.”
Rebecca Burgess - Mine Technical Services
“To me Continually Improve means to strive to always be better. Have a good attitude towards moving forward and always look at ways of improving in the future.”
Natasha Fabbo - Corporate Services
“Continually improve means to me – Challenge the status quo - Because we have always done that way is not an acceptable statement - be open to new ideas but willing to challenge them in a constructive manner.”
Graham Williams - Environment Health & Safety
What does “Deliver results” mean to you?
“To do my job in the most safest & efficient manner possible, and working in with my teammates & dispatch.”
Sue Sculley - Mining Load and Haul
“Prioritising and working to a deadline.”
Caitlin Crack – Environment Health & Safety
“Deliver on our set KPI and targets.”
Chloe Worth - Mine Technical Services
