Leadership & people

The rapidly aging workforce, combined with fewer students in the energy fields such as petroleum engineering and geology, is generating deep concern for companies. For years, the industry faced layoffs through each down cycle. Now, the largest shortages appear in some of the most critical areas: senior scientists and engineers, and top level management.

Recruiting strategies and the ability to retain employees in oil and gas companies is more important now than ever. With growing demand for energy, companies need greater production and a larger workforce. Developing human resource strategies that help attract new recruits, as well as retain the experienced workforce and their knowledge and skills, is imperative to the future of the industry.
