Join as an Employer

Miners’ Promise offers a range of partnerships to meet the needs of all companies in the resources sector.

Watch our corporate video.

1. Become a Promoting Employer Partner

Our Promoting Employer partnership is purely promotional and simply involves promoting Miners’ Promise membership to your employees and processing their membership fees as a salary deduction. Many organisations in the resources sector partner with Miners’ Promise in this way.

2. Become a Contributing Employer Partner

We enjoy a number of mutually beneficial relationships with employers who contribute to Miners’ Promise on behalf of their employees as, “Contributing Employers”.

As a Contributing Employer you simply pay the membership fees on behalf of your employees as part of their employee benefits package. This provides all your employees with access to Miners’ Promise support and assistance when they need it most.

As a participating employer we also work with you to ensure our service compliments your current Employee Assistance Program and encourage your Human Resources department to use our expertise.

3. Become a Fee For Service Partner

Our Fee For Service partnership provides all your employees with access to Miners’ Promise support when they need it. You, the employer, pay a small annual retainer (based on employee numbers) and only pay for our services when crisis occurs and your employees need our help.

Our Core Services

The central most important service we provide is to support individuals and/or their families following a significant crisis event including death – whether this happens at work or at home. When this happens, Miners’ Promise is on hand to provide an individual or their family with practical support, where an employer may not be able to. This could include liaising with funeral directors and other service providers. We can also act as the key liaison with you, as the employer on behalf of the individual or their family.

Other Services

We are also here to help our members find the right professionals when they may not know where to start with common types of services requested including:

  • Making a Will;
  • Legal assistance;
  • Counselling services; and
  • Financial services.

 

Hear From a Couple of Our Partners

 

Mount Gibson Iron

“Mount Gibson recently partnered with Miners’ Promise and we cannot overstate the value and peace of mind that this relationship provides.

“After one of our workers’ families suffered a tragic loss, we contacted Miner’s Promise and within 24 hours they had mobilised an experienced counsellor and provided hands-on practical support for the grieving family.

“In the weeks and months that followed, the assistance provided was immeasurable, helping the family in difficult circumstances with care and sensitivity. The family is incredibly appreciative of the support provided by Miners’ Promise.

“We recommend Miners’ Promise to all organisations involved in the mining sector. Should tragedy occur, Miners’ Promise provides specialist personnel who have first-hand experience in dealing with affected families and liaising with the mining organisation concerned.”

Miners’ Promise is also the recipient of BHP’s matched giving program which doubles personal donations made by employees, meaning that for every dollar donated by an employee, BHP donates another two dollars.”
