Schrole has worked with Rio Tinto in Australia and globally since 2007 to develop and deliver contextualised courses for its staff. Schrole Develop also creates and implements training programs for other Australian mining companies such as BHP Group Limited (ASX: BHP) and Fortescue Metals Group Ltd (ASX: FMG).
Commenting on Schrole’s relationship with Rio Tinto, Managing Director, Rob Graham, said:
“Schrole’s relationship with Rio Tinto continues to grow. Our team at Schrole Develop know the business well and they use their experience to create bespoke programs for Rio Tinto’s staff.
“Schrole Develop is a central component of our full-suite HR talent management solution that we offer clients. Training is one of our two sources of revenue from our full-suite HR talent management solution, and the OJT programs we deliver for mining companies is a core part of that revenue.
“The demand for the minerals that Rio Tinto mine is increasing. Therefore, it is important that Rio Tinto’s staff need to be well equipped with the knowledge and tools to deliver for its clients and keep supply chains running smoothly across multiple industries.”
