Employee retention is one of the major priorities of organizations and companies. In the resource industry, keeping your human resources is just as integral as finding and recruiting them. In Australia, competition to keep experienced mining workers is fierce. To improve operations efficiency, and encourage miners to stay-put, many mining companies have turned to satellite communications to assist in improving living conditions in remote work sites.
One of the biggest hurdles in keeping employees in the mining industry is the remote locations of mining sites, which often affect the emotional well-being of workers, and thus the consequent resort to the costly fly-in-fly-out scheme. Improving communications infrastructure, and using satellite solutions to deliver online and digital entertainment in miners had dramatically improved how companies retain their mine workers.
