Malisha Awunor joins EOH after five years with Barloworld Handling/BHBW
Malisha is an experienced HR professional predominantly within the mining sector. Prior to her current role, she spent five years at Barloworld Handling/BHBW as the HR director and held senior roles at AngloAmerican, Scaw Metals and Coal of Africa. She is very passionate about mentorship. In fact, when she joined AngloAmerican as a 22-year-old HR practitioner 20 years ago, her first task was to mentor first-year bursary students.
This experience resulted in valued relationships that have lasted to this day, and instilled in her a career-long passion for unlocking the potential of employees through mentoring and coaching.
“A lot of where I am today is due to mentors who either threw me in at the deep end or played a role in creating building blocks for me, which allowed me to grow both professionally and personally,” she says.
