Human Resources Policy


It is Alcoa's policy to create a work environment where these are the key words: change, progress, new ideas, respect for the individual and equal opportunities for job advancements. Wherever Alcoa operates in the world, we seek to place our employees' welfare at the forefront.


The work environment, health and safety of our employees always have precedence when decisions are taken in our company. Measuring tools for the success of our operations include these issues.


Alcoa Fjardaál operates by the same value as Alcoa Inc. The smelter should be a safe and secure workplace where the employees get encouragement, every individual is given a chance to do his or her best, and those who excel are rewarded.
