With over 5000 permanent employees, Debswana continues to be to be one of the country's largest private sector employers where 97% of permanent employees are citizens of Botswana.
In addition, there are over 6000 contractors working at Debswana operations.
Although mining is a very technical environment, Debswana remains, at heart, a people-based organisation. That is why the company places great value in its efforts towards the development, wellness, and safety of its employees.
Debswana has trained many employees over the years and continues to do so. The company has training centres at the mines and it also funds various external training and development programmes for employees in various disciplines.
