Hecla and our employees strengthen our communities and our company by partnering and contributing in a meaningful way to the economic and social well-being of our host communities.
Trade jobs will continue to be important in the future, and that is why Hecla has created programs and job site visits to educate students in middle and high school about mining careers and to help in their pursuit of higher education.
Hecla is often among the largest private-sector employers in the communities in which we operate, and we hire locally as much as possible.
Companywide, Hecla employs close to 1,700 people with a total direct compensation of more than $50.9 million per year. In addition, more than one indirect job is created by each direct Hecla job.
