A major mine operator has taken out three different awards over two separate Western Australian industry events within one week.
At the 2023 Western Australia Mental Health Awards, Mineral Resources was named winner of the Happiness Co and Happiness Foundation Mentally Healthy Workplace Award.
The award recognised MinRes’ efforts to encourage excellent mental health for its workers and volunteers.
MinRes’ Head of Mental Health and Wellbeing, Chris Harris, accepted the award on behalf of the company.
“We’re proud to be recognised for the investment we have made in the mental wellbeing of our people,” Mr Harris said.
“At MinRes we acknowledge that our people are our greatest resource, and we believe everyone deserves to go home well to their families.”
At the 2023 AIM Western Australian Pinnacle Awards, MinRes was the winner of the Hawaiian Corporate Social Responsibility Excellence Award and the Marketforce Group Marketing Excellence Award.
Each Pinnacle Award winner receives $20,000 worth of training to donate to a charity of their choice, which MinRes has announced it will be passing on to Youth Focus and the McGovern Foundation.
The Hawaiian Corporate Social Responsibility Excellence Award recognises initiatives that demonstrate leadership and commitment to excellence in corporate social responsibility.
MinRes’ Partnerships Manager, Liam Staltari, accepted the award on behalf of the company.
“We believe deeply in partnering with incredible organisations that make a difference in the communities we operate in, and it’s an honour to be recognised for our contribution to the wider community,” Mr Staltari said.
“We are proud to have contributed more than $22 million to worthy organisations and initiatives across Western Australia in the past five years – a track record we are committed to continuing.”
The Marketforce Group Marketing Excellence Award recognises initiatives that demonstrate leadership and commitment to excellence in marketing and public relations.
MinRes Public Marketing Manager, Mark Hughes, collected the award on behalf of MinRes, and said that it is a proud moment for MinRes to be recognised for its ‘Guaranteed’ campaign, which grew its brand awareness and attracted employees from New Zealand.
“Humour is a powerful communication vehicle in New Zealand, and it was exciting to deliver a unique campaign that breaks the traditional mining advertising stereotype to showcase the great work conditions and pay on offer at MinRes.”
