The global mining industry is facing immense issues with attracting and retaining skilled people into its workforce; whether as a miner or Mining Equipment Technology and Services (METS) company.
Global issues include:
- Competing for the war on talent;
- Workforce culture and change management;
- Diversity and inclusion considerations;
- Outdated mining engineering degrees; and
- The cyclical nature of the industry, to name a few.
As a result of these global challenges Attraction & Retention of Skills, Workforce Culture & Change Management, Diversity & Inclusion, and Engaging and Empowering Next Gen Leaders will all be discussed within the Collaboration Theatre at IMARC 2019.
Keynote speakers for this stream will include Chief People Officers, Heads of Talent and/or Culture, and HR, D&I and Performance executives from mining and METS companies. It will also feature influencers from academia and professional services.
IMARC is pleased to also announce that in 2019, Thursday, 31 October will be open to all students and young mining professionals for attendance; the day will include a number of specific activities for students and next generation leaders.
