Mining needs to invest more in L&D Programs

Istock 8

A large international accounting firm recently announced the results of its analysis of the Australian mining sector and, in short, basically said that we’re still in the ‘boom’ (albeit at the tail end of it) but that we’ve moved from a situation where there was a BIG fight to hire enough skilled staff to do the job, to making sure that they got as much as possible from the established workforce (and other resources) to stay competitive and provide a return to their investors.

We’re always more than happy to hold our hands up and declare that we’re biased towards L&D solutions as a way to address workforce capability/productivity issues, however, we can’t see any other way to achieve this outcome without some significant workforce planning and capability development via well designed training programs.
