Many mining companies are planning ever deeper cuts to staff in 2016, increasing the need for training, skills development and mining knowledge to help bridge the resulting talent gap for remaining staff.

More than half (55%) of mining employers cut staff in 2015 and an additional 40% expect to cut in 2016, according to a recent industry survey by the recruiting firm Hays.

Under-staffing results in burnout and low morale, and current employees are “feeling pressure more than ever”, reports Hays.

While companies cut, employers in the resource and mining industry have expressed concern over growing skills shortages. Three quarters (76%) of employers identify moderate to extreme issues regarding talent gaps.
