New Horizons

Wesfarmers and BHP employ roughly 300,000 people between them. During the pandemic both organisations had to quickly adapt to continue operating while keeping their employees safe. In this New Horizons webinar we will be joined by BHP's Head of Corporate Affairs / WA Iron Ore / Petroleum / Nickel West, Meath Hammond and Wesfarmers Executive General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Naomi Flutter to discuss the pivot, new ways of working and what practices they will keep post COVID.
