BHP Camps to Communities Challenge 2022

Date/Deadline: 09 Oct, 2022

Collaborate with BHP to lead the evolution of experience for their site-based workforce. Help them create an environment that uplifts safety and inclusiveness to enable their teams to thrive!

They want to reinvent the experience of their workforce who often spend long periods away from home to work and stay at their remote locations. It’s important for them to uplift their experience and look for ways to reinvent the traditional ‘mining camp’ environment and transform them into communities where their teams can live, learn and explore interests while staying connected to home!

They’re looking for innovative ideas to make their accommodation safer, more inclusive and encourage their workforce to connect as a community. They are looking for original ideas that push beyond current resource industry standards, with a focus on transforming their teams’ felt experience. If you have an idea or concept they want to hear from you!

Themes to Tackle

Travel – How can they make traveling to site easier, with less hassle and more meaning?
Accommodation – How can they make their camp accommodation safer, more comfortable, more inclusive and best equipped to enable a diverse range of team members to optimize their down time and get the rest they need before their next shift?
Lifestyle – How do they help their team members maximize their downtime and maintain a healthy, engaging and rich lifestyle whilst away from home? What facilities, hubs and spaces can they provide that foster the physical, social and emotional needs of the team members staying in their camps?
Connection to Home – How do they enable their team members to remain connected with their life at home during their time away, while also giving them space to bring a bit of their home life to work?


All the selected companies will be given the following opportunities – with no limit to the number of companies which could be selected:

Proof of concept of possibility – Opportunity to work with BHP on a paid proof of concept with potential to replicate this across the BHP network
Procurement by BHP – Possibility to have your developed solution procured by BHP unleashing new business opportunities for growth across the company and industry
