Mining is facing a critical skills shortage which is threatening a lot of companies. A shortage of skilled workers has been a major concern for the industry for quite some time. Not enough qualified entrants are coming into the industry and experienced people are leaving along with their knowledge. With the age gap widening it has been predicted that one third of the workface is expected to retire by 2022.
Educating your team and continually developing their skills is key to solving this problem. A company who invests in their employees by providing upskilling opportunities, helps fill important positions with experienced, skilled workers who have knowledge to do the job required. A comprehensive learning plan can save a company’s future, not only by educating their staff, but by retaining them. With over 20 years of experience in training the mining industry, Edumine has put together a list of 16 Best Practices for Upskilling Your Team.
