Technical Event: Human Resources – Challenges facing the Mining Sector

June 14, 2018 at 17:30 - 20:30

As any manager will attest, managing people is challenging in any environment. Given the importance of the HR function for companies, WIM would like to explore this rich and rarely discussed area in the mining sector.

Mining company’s HR departments face unique challenges which is inherent in the nature of the sector. It is more than likely that the HR department for a global mining company is located in their corporate head office where all policies and procedures stem from, but the mining team and majority of staff are based at a remote mine site. This can pose restrictions on communication and understanding of what is happening on-site and can cause complication when an incident occurs and HR is required to respond.

The role of women in the sector is also of particular prominence in the HR realm, and most interesting to WIM.  Guiding and advising a predominantly male work force or male management team can be challenging for the female HR representative. Gaining the respect to be listened to is a unique challenge.

WIM would like to invite you to join our discussion in which we will address the many challenges that pertain to human resources in the sector with a view to highlight women’s roles in shaping the agenda for this important function in mining companies around the world.
