We don’t just train our staff; we ensure whole communities benefit from our operations.
Our policy of nationalisation up-skills our national labour force through skills transfer, training and mentorship so we leave communities much stronger than when we entered.
As an example, in the past 5 years our operations in Indonesia and Mongolia have successfully issued over 1,100 operator certificates to our national workforce, with drillers independently managing their own teams within only 18 months. This is backed by our mentorship and counterpart training program which, over 5 years, has delivered a nearly 100% national skilled operator complement at our Freeport projects.
We believe this policy benefits everyone we work with and, just as importantly, helps the communities in which they live.
