New Generation of BUMA
The Company cooperates with several Vocational High Schools (SMK) to recruit students who have the potential to be employed as operators and mechanics.
This approach is also the Company’s contribution to the success of the industrial link and match program launched by the Government to encourage vocational school graduates to be absorbed by the industry. So far, we have collaborated with 15 SMK spread across Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan and Sulawesi, including SMK 2 Mei Lampung, SMKN 6 Bandung, SMKN 2 Cilacap, SMKN JATENG, SMKN 1 Semarang, SMK Warga Solo, SMKN 1 Blora, SMKN 1 Magelang, SMKN 1 Singosari, SMKN 1 Balikpapan, SMK Tanjung Tabalong, SMKN 1 Simpang Empat, SMKN 3 Tanah Grogot, SMKN 5 Sidrap, and SMKN 5 Makassar.
Selected graduates from these schools will take part in the Basic Operator and Basic Mechanic programs held by the Company.
As one of the companies prone to mining accidents resulting in fatalities, the Company realizes the need for transformation in every mining operational process. The transformations that we have carried out are as follows:
- Building a cohesive culture in the Frontline team which aims to accelerate the growth and spread of a positive culture within the organization such as a culture of SHE, positive work behavior, communication, social control, and accepting change.
- Building competent and professional team members which aims to accelerate the development of individuals who have complete capabilities in their field, in order to optimize worker productivity.
Training and Education
The Company implements Competency Based Development (CBD) to meet the workforce needs in accordance with the Company’s culture and standards. The CBD education and training consists of several programs, namely:
- Basic Mechanic, prepared for non-skilled mechanic candidates.
- Basic Operator, prepared for non-skilled operator candidates.
- Basic Trainer, prepared for trainer candidates.
BUMA Management Development Program (BMDP) is a program aimed to prepare level worker candidates as prospective leaders. The Company’s development program starts with the Individual Development Program (IDP) to fill in the skills gaps needed through training, assignments, and independent study. The Company prepares training and mentoring for candidates who participate in the BMDP program.
Upskilling Training Program for Operators and Mechanics
The Company organized operator and mechanic development program aimed to improve soft skill and technical skill to meet the competencies. This upskilling program is provided for operators and mechanics who qualify through competency development activities according to the proposed Individual Development Program (IDP).
The Leadership Camp training program is intended for selected talent candidates to improve their leadership capabilities and to have social impact to the community. This program involves candidates in social projects, including a live-in with rural communities for 5 days to understand the socioeconomic problems and challenges commonly faced, and to provide recommendations and practical solutions for them. Leadership Camp is focused on leadership competency standards that are in line with the Company’s values and to build sensitivity for prospective leaders.
Employment relations are not solely related to competence and productivity. Interaction between individuals and activities carried out together outside of work is an important forum for increasing togetherness and cooperation among employees. To increase morale, the Company facilitates “B’Closer” activities. Based on “B’One”, which is a forum for hobbies and personal development for employees and their family members in the form of Community, Club, Contest, Seminar and Family Gathering activities.
B’Closer activities throughout 2020 includes:
- Sports club activities: futsal, basketball, badminton, photography, etc (carried out in early 2020 before the pandemic)
- Creative Hut (carried out in early 2020 before the pandemic)
- Jajaplix (Jaga Jarak kita tetap Klix).
The most held agenda by B’Closer in 2020 was Jajaplix, an online seminar which is conducted in a fun way, with the aim of nourishing the hearts and mindsets of workers and their families through sustainable activities and having positive impact on Indonesia.
Children and Family Friendly
In the future, the Company through BUMA plans a program to provide daycare facilities/children playground for children of BUMA workers.
Mining activities are naturally dominated by male workers, although the Company does not require gender in recruitment or career development. Every individual has the right to realize their best potential in the workplace and receive equal treatment and objective assessment. As of December 31, 2020, women contributed to 0.8 percent of the Company’s total workforce.
The Company is committed to providing equal opportunities for female workers to become part of the Company. One example is Mrs. Hartini from the Mine Central Dispatch (MCD) Department.
