Valuable Insights for WA’s Future

Posted on 17 Nov 2017

The massive construction surges of the past 12 years are over, and Western Australia is in a new era of operations and maintenance in the resources sector and associated industries.

What does this mean for a state with a major reliance on mining, oil and gas? What do we know about the boom years that will help to inform the future? What are the workforce trends that will play a role in determining the success of companies and sectors in coming years?

These questions and more will be answered in a special Breakfast Seminar, “Workforce Trends and the Winding Road Ahead for Western Australia”, at The University Club (UWA) on Friday 1st December.

Bright People Technologies and Pit Crew Management Consulting have partnered to present a look-back, and look-forward, on the labour market. This will challenge the thinking of many industry participants about the demand-supply equation that will impact the resources sector in coming years. 

Bright’s Managing Director, Petra Nelson, will sort the truths from the myths as she provides an unparalleled view of the nature of skills and labour that was required during the boom years. Bright’s unique database of more than 350,000 individual profiles reveals surprising demographics about workforce requirements.

Peter Dyball, Managing Director of Pit Crew, will take a look at the major project labour market in Western Australia and provide a view of the demand and supply challenges of the next five years, as well as an understanding of demands on eastern states projects.

These critical industry insights will assist companies in many sectors in their analysis and planning work.

Bright has 17 years’ experience in workforce validation, compliance and logistics solutions and works with the world’s leading resources companies to improve operational efficiency and mitigate workforce risk. Bright’s Cited platform, introduced in 2016, is being used across sectors to provide proof at work, checking backgrounds and identities, and managing and storing credentials.

Pit Crew has deep Australian and international experience in advising resources, energy and infrastructure projects, particularly in the provision of labour market forecasting and analysis.
