While every industry experiences trends it is hard to think of an industry where these trends have had the kind of human impact as in Oil & Gas. Times are good and companies can’t grow fast enough. Times are bad and companies can’t shed cost fast enough. The impacts of these shifts on the workforce and the organizations that depend on that workforce are tremendous. Moreover, the reactionary way of dealing with these trends is no longer sustainable. Companies cannot keep chasing this curve. In this panel discussion, you will hear from leading organizations about how they are getting out in front of these challenges. Specifically, they will discuss strategies around:
- Identification of Critical Skills & Roles
- Strategies for modeling the workforce of the future
- An objective evaluation of Talent Supply against Current and Future Talent Demand
- Importance of tailored Learning and Development plans that cascade down to the individual
- How HR can partner with Operations to avoid becoming the “Island of Misfit Data”
When companies employ these strategies the results can be tremendous. From bottom line cost savings to better return on investment on development programs, to competitive advantages due to employee skill levels. When the workforce supply and demand equation is in balance everyone wins.
