Life at Globe

#WeROCKtheGlobe

Globe is working hard to build an environment comprised of incredibly bright and talented individuals, passionate about why they are here and we are determined to make our business a global success by inspiring the mining industry through its people.

You can expect our encouragement and support of your growth and creativity, our value for your input and ideas, and our willingness to create a healthy business ensuring stability and security, something greatly important in these uncertain times.

Big on culture

We want to manifest a culture where bright, talented individuals are empowered and trusted to do their best work with very little in their way. We want an authentic space where each of us is having loads of fun and are inspired to work in an environment fostering greatness.

Alastair Fisher, CEO

When you encounter senior leaders that are as passionate about a culture of support, empowerment trust and fun you should grab a-hold and cling on for dear life! Our culture at Globe is something that is demonstrated across the board and nurtured by every member of our team. Globe values (and rewards) creativity, innovation and dedication and inspires and supports you to grow according to your unique goals.

Creating culture beyond our physical environment

While we strive to ensure that our offices are fun, inspiring, and collaborative, our culture is not bound to 4 walls!  We are a global team working in hybrid environments or even completely remotely and we are passionate about ensuring our culture exceeds the limitations of a physical office.

Any space you regularly use for work will become Globe at home. We help you create a space where you feel inspired, productive and feel just as connected to your team.

There are always opportunities for collaboration and social activities within your direct team, regional team, and your global team. Between your regional administrator  and our social committee, you’ll get to participate in virtual Escape Rooms, yoga on Wellness Wednesdays, Friday Trivia, and Jingle & Mingle meet and greets – you name it!

 

Powered by diversity and belonging

 

The first reason any Globie will give you for why they love Globe, is our diversity. We love that we can speak to people from every corner of the globe, every day. We learn from one another; we celebrate each other’s differences and unique perspectives and then we bring it all together to #FacilitateGreatness in everything we do.

We recognise the contribution of every individual and understand the impact of being able to bring your full, authentic self to work. Over the last 20 years, we have worked hard to ensure everyone feels their contribution is valued and feel part of a supportive team.

As of 2022, we are proudly powered by employees from 11 different nationalities speaking 12 collective languages. Operating from 21 cities and provinces, we are led by a passionate leadership team comprised of 5 nationalities and 66% women..

Supporting diversity, equity and inclusion is our life-long commitment, and we will continue to challenges ourselves to broaden, deepen and elevate our commitment across all areas of the business.

People first

Everything we do is human-centered – from our candidates to our team members, we want to provide you with an environment that you can thrive in. While we work towards a global culture of collaboration, growing and belonging, we know that this looks different to everyone.

When and where we work

We understand that some of us are night owls while others rise with the sun and we want you to work when you work best. We have core communication hours to ensure we are all available to collaborate in the same window, however your time outside of those hours can be worked to suit you.

‘Where’ for us has always been exciting, with employees all around the Globe. We believe there’s strength in numbers (number of minds, that is!) and so we really do love providing opportunities for people to gather in one place when possible – whether that is online or in person. Our offices are social spaces for our teams to spend time together, brainstorm and inspire one another, and your remote working space is whatever you want it to be!

We offer Working from Home options for our employees with access to an office, and co-working space for our remote employees wherever possible. Wherever you are, we want to create an environment that will nurture you to do your best work.

Parents and guardians

We believe in family first and are committed to facilitating a family friendly culture and working environment. Life’s most important role is the one you play within your family, and we will work with you to provide the support you need to focus on your family.

Every family is built differently, and our approach to your parental leave and return to work compliments our differences. Primary caregivers receive 12 weeks of paid parental leave, and secondary caregivers receive 6 weeks of paid parental leave. We build your transition plan into parental leave and return to work around your family and will work with you to ensure you feel supported, confident and engaged throughout.

We will also evolve with you and will facilitate a flexible environment which supports your family and ensures that you are present at home while managing your work commitments, too.


Returning to work after parental leave is challenging for all parents, but Globe was so supportive through my parental leave and return to work with both my children. The fact that I could return gradually – starting a few hours a day, from part-time to a flexible full-time arrangement was tremendously helpful and supportive. I had enough time to take care of a new family member while I felt again like myself – being back to work thrills, friendly chats, and completing amazing projects. I have been able to continue developing my career and have recently been promoted into management. I love that I had sufficient time to prepare myself for this new challenge, with all peace of mind and two happy kids at home.
