Leveraging Technology to Improve Workforce Competency

On-Demand Webinar


Engage your next generation workforce to support future growth

The Kinetic Heartbeat Group Report estimates annual mining turnover is at 24%. The cost for replacing a new recruit is 33% of an annual salary and 150% for highly skilled positions. As operators and personnel switch jobs and migrate between various operations, technology holds the key to engaging the next generation of operators.

At Schneider Electric, we understand the need to keep the next generation of mining workers more engaged, and invested with updated training tools that speed training time.

This webinar addresses key topics faced by the mining, minerals, and metals (MMM) industry:

  • The Workforce Competency Challenge: How operator competency impacts operation
  • Planning for Structured Training: Defining training needs and means for the next generation workforce
  • Creating Value: Putting concepts into action – customer case studies
