Podcast: You think you have your challenges? Try delivering a work experience in a war zone!

Tony Johnson interviews 4xi's Global Remote Sites Consultant, Peter Roles on the often extreme challenges of operating sites in some of the most remote and dangerous environments on the planet.

In this episode, Tony and Peter talk about the challenges of employee engagement and delivering quality in these remote locations.

Fascinating insights into what really matters:

  • Employees in remote locations value the things that we often take for granted - good food, comfortable accommodation, even connectivity with family back home.

  • Home from home, continuous improvement, constant innovation, including 'eatertainment' is a critical way of motivating and engaging consumers - the smallest things can make a big difference.

  • Leveraging technology to drive efficiency, connectivity, and experiences is key.

  • Supply chain is critical to delivering services within the remote site environment.

  • Getting engaged with local people and communities is essential to long term integration, and success - sustained investment in the community.
