Current Poll

Working from home & innovation

With coronavirus causing chaos across our industry and across the world, there’s no proper poll this month. However, we would love it if you could tell us about some of the more innovative things you or your employer have done to help people work remotely, or to work together and stay safe on site, through this period. We’ll collate all the answers and create a bit of a ‘laundry list’ of ideas to share widely across the mining industry, so everyone can benefit from the advice! If you are happy for us to quote your name or your employer, please let us know. Otherwise, as always, your answers are 100% confidential.

Thanks so much for taking part in this Mining People Polling/Media Centre poll. We’ll publish the results on our website next month. You can see the results of some of our other recent polls below!
