Grow at Teck

We know that our people are our strength, and we place a priority on helping develop skills, knowledge and abilities. Work experiences, training and development programs will ensure that you can meet your career and professional development goals, while working and learning from some of the most experienced people in the natural resources sector.

Building Strength with People

We take pride in hiring the best employees - employees whose energy and skills help to build phenomenal teams. Teamwork is essential to success, whether it be with fellow employees, clients, or other businesses. We expect that all Teck employees embrace the concept of strength through both individual performance and teamwork.

Our performance management program Building Strength with People reinforces this concept. The program helps to align employee’s career goals with the needs of the company, and has two key components: performance improvement and employee development.

Employees meet with their supervisor annually to discuss career development, future job opportunities and career options. The supervisor and employee have regular discussions about progress and commitment toward achieving objectives and development plans.

Employees set performance objectives annually that help the company achieve business and operational goals. The supervisor provides ongoing feedback and guidance to ensure that the employee succeeds in achieving objectives.

Educational Advancement

We understand that people want to grow, learn and develop throughout their careers. We want all our employees to fulfill their potential and achieve their career aspirations and we support additional studies to help you reach these goals.

Our employees have the opportunity to study a language relevant to their area of work using the Rosetta Stone program, the world's leading language-learning software.

We offer graduate level business courses through our Business Education Program in partnership with Simon Fraser University.

Graduate Diploma in Business Administration: Established in 1996, this program consists of MBA-level courses relevant to our business needs:

  • Financial Management
  • Organizational and Leadership Effectiveness
  • The Economic Basis of Managerial Decision-making
  • Industrial Marketing Management
  • Business, Community and Government
  • Commercial Law

In September 2008, we launched our internal MBA program. Eligible employees can work towards completing their MBAs while continuing to work full-time.

Our Educational Assistance program is designed to keep our employees on the cutting edge of their field and provide them with the necessary skills to advance their career. We encourage our employees to upgrade their educational background, knowledge and skills through training and education courses. We provide financial assistance for approved courses.
