Digital workforce engagement for mining companies


Deloitte Digital, together with a technology partner Wyzetalk, has developed an innovative and cost effective mobile-based workforce engagement solution. This engagement platform has been developed due to the fundamental lack of effective communication in mining companies between management, organised labour and coal-face employees.

Effective Digital Workforce Engagement can eliminate current challenges experienced in the mining sector, which may include:

  • Ineffective communication platforms
  • Increasing pressure to deliver accurate safety messages in an attempt to reduce fatalities
  • Increasing mistrust fuelled by external factors
  • Lack of engagement and dialogue
  • Inability to access close to real time insights

Effective workforce engagement allows for 2 way communication to build trust, create opportunities for dialogue across all workforce segments and importantly delivers close to real time insights, which guide the organization to develop and execute effective strategies to achieve operational efficiencies.

Experience this innovative approach to Workforce Engagement at the Deloitte stand: 125 at Mining Indaba 2015 from the 9th – 12th February 2015.
