Total Rewards Offering

​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.
