Are you having trouble finding Heavy-Duty Diesel Mechanics for your mining operation? You’re not alone.
With dozens of HD jobs listed across Australia and record-level wages and benefits on offer, companies and agencies are scrambling to attract skilled workers to their ranks.
Already in hot demand, the global pandemic has further tightened competition for HD Diesel talent.
And with Mining, Resources and Energy leading the list of top jobs in Western Australia, this is one skills shortage that looks to be staying put for now.
So what’s the by-product for employers from all this competition? More often than not, the answer to that is churn.
Average technicians are more than happy to jump ship for a few more dollars in a seller’s market if there isn’t a strong culture and bigger vision to keep them with your organisation.
In a bright contrast, studies have shown that the best and most highly sought-after workers are often motivated by deeper elements than simply cold hard cash.
A-player employees throughout the mining industry – the top 10% – would forgo extra money to join a company with its sights set on a brighter future and where personal development is central.
But how do we find these people, we hear you ask?
