Work environment

Our main goal is to create healthy and safe working environment for our employees. They are our resource and key for the company to success. 

Elkem Iceland is a trusted and desirable workplace. The company's focus is to focus on diversity. Elkem employs individuals with different talents, focuses, and backgrounds, and this has brought Elkem great results as well as supporting the company's values of continuous progress. Elkem Iceland attaches great importance to employees' living conditions and safety, as well as a strong corporate culture, health, training and education.

In Elkem Iceland we have working with us more than 170 highly skilled industrial workers, engineers and other specialized functions. About 85% of the people working with us ive in Akranes and Hvalfjardarsveit, local towns next to the plant. A large proportion of employees have worked for the company for over 20 years, and some have reached the age of 40 years, but they were employed when the factory started operations.
