About MINEX HR competition

One of the lessons learnt by companies from the coronavirus crisis is that people are one of the most important assets. Successes and failures often depend on leaders and teams. Highly skilled, creative, and motivated individuals make geological discoveries and drive modernisation, increasing efficiency and shareholder value. Whereas miscalculations and human errors can result in serious economic losses, accidents, and environmental disasters.

Development of material assets should go hand in hand with the development of human resources. This requires closer collaboration between universities, HR departments, academic and research organisations, government agencies and regulators.

  • How to ensure the inflow of young, highly educated, and motivated people into the industry?
  • How to educate and re-educate personnel in quickly changing economic conditions, society decarbonisation and “Industry 4.0” technological revolution?
  • How to sustain production and ensure health and safety of people during the spread of coronavirus?
  • How can academia, universities and businesses utilise more efficiently their resources to accelerate scientific and technological development?

These and other important issues are being successfully addressed by the mining and metals industry in Russia and CIS.

To popularize advanced experience and technologies in the field of personnel management and training specialists for enterprises of the mining and metallurgical complex, MineHR competition is being organized within the framework of the MINEX Russia forum.
