Research shows that companies with a strong Diversity and Inclusion culture outperform those that don’t. An Accenture report ‘Getting to Equal: The Disability Inclusion Advantage’ shows that US businesses championing Disability Inclusion were “two times more likely to outperform their peers in terms of total shareholder returns compared with the rest of the sample,” and that those companies working on improving their inclusion policies reported total shareholder returns that outperformed their industry peers by 53 percent.
As the world emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic, the mining industry is one sector that is showing a dynamic increase in activity. According to a series of reports on studies on the mining sector in 2021, this is due to several well-defined factors, such as an increase in commodity prices, a rising demand for raw materials for battery production and a number of Mergers and Acquisitions. But while these are opportunities, there have also been challenges to overcome, especially in recruiting for roles that were previously ‘Fly In Fly Out’, but now need to be residential.

This has led to a fear of job loss in some people’s minds, but the technology’s impact on employment is more nuanced than a simple ‘Humans Out – Robots In’.
Recruitment is a people-centric industry. A lot of its activity is based on meeting and talking to people, both hiring managers and candidates. Traditionally, much of this communication would ideally take place face to face, but in 2020 most in-person meetings came to an abrupt halt, as the rules of lockdown prohibited them.
Some time ago I was reflecting back on a series of articles I had enjoyed reading in a newspaper. The articles used the premise to ask people to list 5 books that had made an impact on their lives. I thought it was a fun read and a good way to share with others some books that might be of interest to them.
Bringing an intern on board comes with responsibilities and benefits for both the employer and the intern. From the intern’s perspective it gives them valuable insights into the day-to-day structures of work, as well as offering valuable access to mentorship and a future professional network.

Compared with some other industries, Higher Education (HE) is slow-moving, yet education is critical to the challenges ahead in a more technology-based jobs market. Two futurists, Simon Fuglsang Østergaard and…
Working from home (WFH) is a solution chosen by many entrepreneurs, even if Covid-19 hadn’t made remote working a necessity for many of us. Those of us who at one time worked in an office probably gave little thought to how our work space was laid out, or if the office furniture was ergonomic, because we were too busy just getting things done. But, it is also likely that we have been aware that some work spaces made us feel better, and that there were some which made us feel unproductive, or even unwell.
