In 2012 Globe saw that beyond the markets it was already present in, there was an opportunity to support the Latin American Resources sector and established an office in Bogot, Colombia to service the region.
After a decade of operation and growing into a truly international consulting firm, Globe relocated its Head Office from Australia and now administers all global oversight and management from Singapore.
A key piece of Globe's strategy came in 2016 when it created 'Globe Competency Assurance' focused on training and workforce development for the international resources sector. 'Globe CA' works with companies to develop & deliver Training Management Systems in emerging and developed countries within the global resources sector.
In the years ahead, Globe will continue to work with mining, energy and oil & gas companies to support them with their HR needs, whatever they are and wherever they are with a commitment to 'quality first'.

In essence, the share of mineral royalty that is used to support development in mining communities is negligible. Obviously, this is woefully inadequate to address the infrastructure shortfalls in the hosts of the countrys mineral wealth.
It is on this premise that the Ghana Chamber of Mines continues to urge government to increase the host communities share of royalties to 30% and earmark same for specific sustainable infrastructure projects in the mining communities.
President of the Ghana Chamber of Mines, Eric Asubonteng said the poor state of mining communities is largely a function of the development status of the country as well as an outcome of the mechanism for allocating and utilising fiscal revenues realized from the extraction of mineral resources. Apart from the statutory proportion of mineral royalty that is returned to the host mining communities, all the other streams of fiscal revenue originating from the mining sector accrue to the central government.
