Why join Vale

Vale is proud of its total rewards offering. But what does it mean?
It means that we believe our employees deserve to share the rewards of our success. We strive to pay above market from a total compensation standpoint, with a strong focus on pay performance. While offering competitive base pay within the industry, our short- and long-term incentive programs are designed to reward and promote performance by elevating total compensation to a higher level.

To meet this compensation goal, we conduct benchmarking surveys and use third-party services to perform annual reviews of employee compensation.

Vale offers a highly attractive and comprehensive suite of pension, educational assistance and benefit programs:

  • Health benefits such as prescription drugs, vision care, dental and more
  • Short- & long-term disability
  • Life insurance
  • Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
  • Maternity leave salary top-up
  • Educational assistance: Post-graduate studies, courses and certifications.
  • Professional memberships

Vale also provides a scholarship program for the children of employees and pensioners in Canada. Since the program started in 1956, we have awarded more than $5 million in university scholarships to deserving young scholars.
