Attracting and Retaining Diverse Talent

Maintenance Stage

Diversity within the workforce is important for several reasons but ultimately it drives higher performing teams. In this session we will examine how I recently led a major program within a major mining organisation.

We’ll look at how you can attract and retain a diverse workforce in a sustainable way. Focusing on how we designed and setup a program to train and embed these individuals within the workforce, rotate through different teams and ultimately find the right place to land in the organisation.

Learn how having a person-centred approach was important to match the talent within the right teams and ensure they felt supported and empowered while coaching and mentoring them on their journey. This ultimately saw diversity within the workforce increase, across gender, LGBTQ+ and First Nations employees with low attrition and higher employee satisfaction within this group.

  • People focused diversity hiring is important but ensuring the right supports and mechanisms are in place is key to success
  • Don't forget about the rest of your workforce, bring them on the journey
  • Promote internally to create space for the new talent
  • Dedicated support and funding are key to success
