As a lawyer turned HR professional, Tamara Howarth, head of HR and VP of Legal at Wheaton Precious Metals, wears many hats. However, the duality of her roles has contributed to the company’s success, with Wheaton recently named one of the major global companies generating the most revenue per employee.
Wheaton is one of only two Canadian companies to make OnDeck’s list, with a revenue per employee of $23,095,238; the company has a relatively modest employee base of 42 worldwide. In the 20 years since the company was founded, it has been recognized for generating the most revenue per employee for many of those years, Howarth said.
“One of the key benefits of the precious metal streaming model is that we’re able to create value with a very lean team,” she said.
