The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) imperative in mining and metals

Part one of the three-part DE&I article series

Mining & Metals (M&M) companies are making progress in implementing various DE&I initiatives in the workplace. But what does diversification mean to employees and what are the broader organisational implications and many benefits of making DE&I a priority?

With continued labour market disruption across many industries in recent years, now more than ever greater emphasis is benign placed on the way organisations engage their workforce. As Deloitte’s Tracking the trends 2022 report highlights, employees’ expectations of their roles are changing, meaning M&M companies need to evolve to meet their workforce’s shifting priorities and needs. In order for M&M companies to thrive into the future, executives need to unlock and incorporate the value that a DE&I focussed strategy can bring to their workforce today.

To help M&M companies understand and embrace the benefits of DE&I, Deloitte has developed a three-part series of articles which examines the current state and possible next steps the industry can take. This first article unpacks the imperatives of DE&I and the implications on M&M companies. It also explores how diversification can lead to benefits in terms of culture and talent, performance and productivity and decision-making and safety.

Stay tuned for more articles on DE&I.
