cannington c Cannington Remuneration Policy Investigation. C The organisation studied for the purpose of this investigation is Broken Hill Proprietary / Limited (B.H.P.). B.H.P. is Australia°s largest company and was ranked 125th on the fortune global 500 list of the worlds largest industrial companies in 1993. The company was incorporated in 1885 and began mining silver , lead and zinc at Broken Hill in NSW Cannington is BHPs latest mine which is still yet to officially open, the mine was a Greenfield site discovered in June 1990. BHP is currently evaluating a world class silver lead and zinc deposit located in Cannington near McKinlay, North Queensland The company currently hold a mining permit for 7660 hectares in the area, it is estimated to be the largest silver mine in the world. a The general context of the policy is focused on the change of attitude between management and staff on the Cannington site and the out come of the specific remuneration policy will hopefully be to attract and retain a good team of employees in order to recognise the value of the BHP workers and to extract maximum wealth from Cannington silver, lead and zinc deposits. w By undertaking this investigation I hope to achieve a better understanding of the remuneration policy and how and why the policy was changed in the beginning of the Cannington project. I will also hope to achieve an understanding of future direction. To complete this investigation I will use information about the previous and current remuneration policies related to previous projects completed by BHP. I will also investigate, the pressures involved to inspire the Human Resource Management Department to change the policy, the new policy, and the desired effect the change is designed to have on the current mining site. I will also explain the effect the remuneration policy will have on structures and the effect it will have on activities of the business as well as the evaluation process used by the management to ensure that these policies are working. t I have obtained this information from a lecture given by Glenn Morrow the manager of the Human Resource (H.R.M.)Dept. at BHP. Mr Morrow gave a speech on the organisation in which I am investigating and also on the Cannington site in particular . He achieved this by using overhead transparencies showing the objectives of the Cannington site, we were also given a copy of all of the overhead transparencies in the form of a booklet. The specific human resource management policy prior to change was effective in order for past projects, but Cannington is different to all previous sites such as BHP Manganese, BHP Iron Ore and BHP Australian Coal which were all examined and were not approved because these previous policies were based on people living close to the workplace. The second major reason these previous policies were not approved is because in the case of Cannington B.H.P is the provider of transport, social

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
