Our People

Our people are the key to Gold Road’s ongoing success. We believe in fostering an organisational culture that values diversity and inclusiveness and provides an environment which enables both personal and professional development.


We care for the wellbeing of all

We act with integrity

We deliver

We innovate to improve

We work as one team

This is a journey that fosters continuous development and individual improvement, and one that Gold Road is deeply committed to. The health, safety and wellbeing of our people is paramount and remains front and centre of everything we do at Gold Road. Our approach is best reflected in Gold Road’s Company Values, which drive the way we go about our business. During 2018, Gold Road developed Culture and Engagement surveys with all employees, which were conducted in the March and December quarters. Several actions were initiated in response to the surveys, including establishing a dedicated environmental team for exploration activities and expanding our waste management and recycling initiatives.

Mental Health Initiative

Gold Road achieves gold in mental health initiative.
Each year, one in five Australians will experience a mental illness. Throughout our lifetime, mental health illness will therefore impact many of us either directly or indirectly.

In December 2017, the Company embarked on a journey to increase our mental health awareness and leadership capability. We initiated a programme of Mental Health First Aid training for all employees which saw an initial group of Gold Road staff being certified.

By the end of 2018, almost 100% of Gold Road leaders and 80% of our employees were trained in Mental Health First Aid. On the back of this training programme we can proudly report that Gold Road became the first organisation in the mining industry to achieve Gold Accreditation from Mental Health First Aid Australia.

The implementation of more family-friendly rosters and the incorporation of mindfulness into our work day, demonstrate further examples of our commitment to optimising the health and wellbeing of our people. The contribution and participation from our staff, emphasises our collective and unified efforts to create a healthier and safer workplace for all.

Vital Behaviours

In 2018, the Company embraced and expanded the deployment of the Vital Behaviours Influencer Model across non-operational business functions to assist with delivering those functions’ strategic objectives. This included implementing the Vital Behaviours programme to the management support teams of Gold Road’s drilling contract partners and their operational personnel.

By the end of the year, the Vital Behaviours programme had become an integral part of the Gold Road organisation. Gold Road’s Vital Behaviours for Health and Safety are Speak Up, Follow Procedures, Support Safe Teamwork, and Seeking Hazards.
