AusIMM launches 2020 PER survey

The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy has encouraged the mining industry to take part in its 2020 professional employment and remuneration (PER) survey.

The survey is conducted annually and analyses the experiences, priorities and perspective of the mining workforce.

For the 2020 PER survey, AusIMM is seeking understanding of COVID-19’s impact on the resources sector through the employment market, changes to living and working conditions and how these changes may affect the future of the industry.

Other critical themes including social performance and technological advancement will also be focussed on in the survey.

According to AusIMM chief executive officer Stephen Durkin, the survey will enhance our understanding of how this year’s unprecedented situation has impacted the industry.

“The findings from this year’s survey will be highly useful for decision-makers in the resources sector. By examining the impacts of COVID-19, we will identify key priority areas that industry needs to focus on to deliver future growth and opportunities for workers,” he said.

“The survey will also provide a snapshot of the current state of play and where the industry might head next.

“The information gathered from the survey will also play a key role in determining AusIMM’s priorities on advocacy, professional development offerings and communication for the next 12 months – helping us to drive outcomes relevant to our member’s needs, and those of the broader industry.”

The 15-minute survey is available  online.
