The mining industry in Australia has been the back bone of our economy for several decades.

It has also been the root cause of many of the challenges that we have seen associated with employee relations including wage cost challenges, critical skills supply and demand impacts and of course the entire remote workforce model.

SHR has, and continues to, provide strategic and operational advice and support to many of the premier mining houses and mineral processing companies in WA and Australia generally. With a focus on developing the most cost-effective solution while mitigating labour risk, SHR has developed some of the industries best practices including innovative and commercially sound collective agreements, roster solutions, labour mobilisation plans, logistics plans and of course our passion, better employee relations outcomes.
