BHP produce essential commodities through their assets, including iron ore, copper, nickel, potash and metallurgical coal. BHP products are essential for global economic growth and with a strong foundation of safety and performance, BHP are focused on the essential commodities the world needs to decarbonise and sustainably develop.
Millpond are excited to secure a major international capability program contract with global mining leader BHP. Tendering against larger organisations, Millpond has highlighted the potential for local businesses to compete on the world stage – and bolster the local economy in the process.
The capability program will enhance skills and knowledge at BHP sites across Australia and the Americas, in areas such as strategic acumen, portfolio management, and project leadership. The goal is to maximise performance across their portfolios.
“We are thrilled and humbled to have been chosen by BHP to lead this crucial capability program,” says Mike Roberts, Training Practice Lead and Director at Millpond. “We believe that our approach, focus on quality, and commitment to building long-term partnerships have been key factors in this success.”
The significance and impact of Millpond securing the BHP contract extends beyond the walls of the two organisations. Having successfully bid against larger competitors, Millpond has proven that agility and resilience can see local businesses punch above their weight globally.
“Our success in securing this tender proves that smaller companies can compete on a world stage and deliver exceptional results,” Roberts adds.
With the program launch in September 2023, Millpond has begun the program design phase, and is determined to make a lasting impact on BHP staff and projects.
