Mining and Metals Tracking the Trends 2023 Report brings attention to the labour shortages in the mining industry. The report emphasizes that It’s time for industry leaders to come together and embrace change to address these labour shortages. Companies could focus their efforts on revisiting external talent pathways with a focus on DEI and sustainability. Companies should diversify their recruitment efforts to hire diverse talent, moving beyond fitting someone into a job description to hiring based on skills and potential.
People are the most valuable assets that mining organizations have, and their importance should be reflected through enhanced and sustained investments to get the right people in the right place, at the right time and with the right skills and capabilities. Efforts must be made to invest for today while proactively investing for tomorrow. To respond to this, mining and metals companies should find more creative ways to source such talent.
