Newcrest Social Performance Leadership Course a Success.
Last month UQ and Newcrest Mining Ltd (NML), welcomed the first students to the Social Performance Leadership program. UQ and NML worked together to deliver this innovative and important initiative, designed to share knowledge across and within both organisations, with the overall objective of continuing to improve social performance across Newcrest's global operations. The 17 participants came from NML’s corporate office and sites in Australia, Indonesia, Ivory Coast and Papua New Guinea and they included a diversity of roles; highlighting the importance of social performance across operations.
Social performance is emerging as a critical success factor for mining companies in the 21st century, and the need to increase the depth and breadth of understanding of key issues amongst all stakeholder groups has never been greater.
All participants left having engaged in group activities and loved having the opportunity to work together and discuss ideas with their peers to ensure the continued improvement of social performance at Newcrest operations.
