Human Resource Development
TVI Resource Development Philippines, Inc. (TVIRD) is aware of society’s increasing expectations for business in general, and for extractive industries like mining in particular, to contribute in the areas of social and environmental development. As such, TVIRD puts great importance on its most precious intangible assets – its people. While the Company is committed to working towards enhancing the quality of life of employees and their families, it also expects them to have a strong awareness of social and environmental issues facing the industry, and to strictly adhere to high moral and ethical standards in the performance of their duties.
TVIRD gives priority to hiring individuals from its host communities, and provides salaries and benefits that exceed those of regional counterparts. At any given time, more than half of the workforce at the Company’s Canatuan operations are from the host province of Zamboanga del Norte. Using a multiplier effect of six times, TVIRD has created up to over 4,000 jobs for the Philippines as a whole.
Quality of life does not only depend on the social and economic well-being of employees and their families – it is also linked to a healthy, safe and secure environment. Over the years, TVIRD has sought to promote such an environment in its operations and to build greater understanding and support for human rights, sustainable development and responsible mining into the Company’s culture.
