Many of our team members highlighted below have sat in your seat, so to speak, and we understand the backdrop that you face each day in the mining industry. A top reason why our team of driven leaders has joined our firm and stayed with our firm is that we offer them, like you, a great deal of flexibility to meet their personal and professional objectives. We offer flexible schedules, flexible work assignments, flexible compensation and benefits structure, flexible career development, and a fun environment – whether virtual or in-person.
Our team members are based throughout North America, and much of their mine staffing, mining and industrial HR work, and mining project work is performed at our mining client or industrial client sites – or in-home office settings. Although we set a high benchmark for performance, our business is underpinned with the following values:
Accountability, Flexibility, Innovation, Relationships.
