Celebrating 20 years of partnership with the Beacon Foundation
Komatsu and Beacon have partnered on initiatives that prepare school leavers as they enter the workforce, and in particular to understand what is involved in a career in the construction and mining industry. Successful Beacon programs in partnership with Komatsu have included:
• Mock job interview training
• Komatsu employees hosting webinars to share information on careers at Komatsu and the wider industry
• Komatsu branch site tours
• Work experience
• Hands-on workshops at a Komatsu branch
• Career expos
Over the 21-year partnership, we’ve seen many Beacon students secure employment with Komatsu, using the skills they learned through participating in Beacon and Komatsu workshops.
Our employees are also constantly involved with educational programs and mentoring Beacon Foundation members, either through in branch activities or school visits. We’re excited to continue to work with organisations like the Beacon Foundation, and continue to look at ways Komatsu can escalate our impact by sharing our knowledge, creating enriching learning experiences and providing a future career for youth in need.
