The past two weeks saw intense efforts of skills development of Thorburn Security Solutions staff in the Northern Region which ranges from focussed mining security refresher training courses in Steelpoort, intense CCTV surveillance training , psychometric potential assessments on staff to employment equity discussions on future EE improvements in the company.

Ten Thorburn Security Solutions (from Pretoria, Nkomati Mine and Phalabora Mining Company) and two Phalabora Mining Company CCTV surveillance operatives attended a two day surveillance course presented by Dr Craig Donald from Leaderware who is an industrial psychologist. He is a specialist in training CCTV body language and the detection of incident behaviour.

In Steelpoort in Mpumalanga at the Thorburn Operational Center mining security officers were refreshed in security techniques as part of the bi annual refresher training.

During the past two weeks ten employees (as part of a larger group to be tested over the next few months) have undergone psychometric skills potential assessments conducted by outsourced specialists Ipac. The purpose is to determine future leadership potential and future training and development focus areas for staff. Many internal promotions in the past were prompted by the results of Ipac potential analysis results.

In a latest development has the company Employment Equity Committee met during the week to discuss EE matters which amongst others will include the development of staff. The EE committee members were given the assurance that the development of staff will be high on the Thorburn agenda and that there will be a specific focus of female development.

Unigrad Lowveld Campus (former Damelin Nelspruit) in Nelspruit will be contracted to provide Office Administration courses to female mining security officers in the Steeplpoort area whilst Business Writing, as an expansion of our previous English courses in Steelpoort, will also be presented in the near future. Lecturers from Unigrad Lowveld campus will be deployed to Steelpoort to support the Thorburn Security training needs.

In Johannesburg our annual 10 months English Training Course presented by Gwen Hoch from Innovative Learning will commence in August 2013 in Rosebank, focussed on Johannesburg employees.

Overall a very productive week in developing our staff with lots to come on the future!
