My Potentia brings fairness to Papua New Guinea

The successful use of a Language Free Assessment was demonstrated in Papua New Guinea, when a new oil and gas plant was commissioned in the early 2000s. The plant required about 700 process engineers to be trained in four, 3-year programs, to replace expats who were initially employed to operate the plant. After using My Potentia to select for training, no candidates failed their courses and all Expats were replaced according to the plan. On the advice of a senior manager the savings to the company were very significant both in time and cost.

My Potentia has recently been used again in Papua New Guinea, to identify suitable trainees from the communities’ that formed part of the Wafi Golpu Joint Venture. The following is a testimonial to its use in the early stages of the project.

”Wafi-Golpu Joint Venture (Harmony Gold and Newcrest Mining) commenced My Potentia testing for villages and communities in close proximity to the mine site in 2016. To date we have tested in excess of 1700 people.

The test results have been most beneficial in assisting the Project to pre-select people for training in a number of areas including the Workforce Readiness, the Driver Training and the Equipment Operators training programs. Wafi-Golpu will continue to use My Potentia through the construction phase and then during the operations phase of the mine.

My Potentia is now used as the first step in our selection process for new starters. In addition we test our existing employees to help assess their future potential and as a base to their career path on the Project.”
