3D Business Men Marching by lumaxart

In this current economic climate it is more important than ever to consider the significance of professional competence and its recognition, at all levels within the workforce, as this can impact on issues relating to legal requirements and financial investments, as well as staff morale and retention.

Historically there has been some reticence in support at the Technician and Incorporated Engineer levels.  The Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining is inviting you to participate in a seminar to enable views from all stakeholders to be obtained in assessing the extent of the problem and gain a clearer sense of what is required to address the needs of, barriers to, and the potential benefits of professional recognition to businesses and individuals alike.

Case-studies of experience from a variety of industry sectors and associations, as well as from individuals from a range of career points, will be presented.  The outcome of the seminar will be to establish productive and relevant engagement mechanisms to enable the development and maintenance of professional workforces at all levels.
