Abstract/Summary A survey was used to collect field data on demographic and socio-economic well-being of the aboriginal employees and trainees who were formerly working at Argyle. The purpose of the study was to assess the effectiveness of Argyle’s training programs and to track their contribution to the development of human capital in the Kimberley region. Funded by Argyle Diamond Mine (ADM), the research was undertaken by the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining (CSRM), with assistance from Argyle Diamond’s Community Relations and Work Readiness (CRWR) department. Key objectives of the project were to: * collect information about what the former employees(apprentices and trainees) have been doing since leaving Argyle; * use this information to assess the effectiveness of training programs and to track their contribution to the development of human capital in the region; and * make recommendations, based on the findings, to assist in the design of workplace retention strategies.
