15 Mar Lessons Learned When Workforce Reduction was a Factor in Migrating Truck Drivers to Autonomous Fleets
This anonymous case study highlights a consultancy’s experience helping a North American mining operation whose truck driving operations migrated to autonomous fleets. This case study discusses how communication and change management initiatives had to be adapted once they realized that autonomous mining would result in job loss for this company.
This case study is for the Autonomous Mining Skills Migration Case Study library. To achieve the desired operating efficiency and productivity benefits of an autonomous operation, companies require new skillsets in the workforce. By providing examples around communication strategy, change management, training, skills pathways, and lessons learned based on lived experience, these case studies aim to assist the industry in creating a workforce that will enable autonomous mining.
