The competition for new talent: how to stay relevant in today’s energy industry

Pressing economic challenges and evolving social concerns are changing the nature of the workforce in all industries. The image of the oil and gas industry has suffered due to growing negative perceptions about the extraction and use of hydrocarbons, which is hindering efforts to attract and maintain a new generation of workers with the right skill set. The industry also has a diversity problem, with gender inequality still prevalent despite efforts to narrow the gap. The energy industry will need to adapt to capture the young, diverse, and inclusive workforce that it needs, including highlighting better its role in delivering vital energy solutions and its willingness to respond to climate concerns through decarbonisation, technology and new energy initiatives.

Other panellists:

Looking around the corner: how will technology create new opportunities and unlock future value

Energy is a technology driven business. How oil and gas companies respond to the challenges of climate change and emissions, and the opportunity to diversify their portfolios, will depend on the speed of development and commercial deployment of new technology that accelerates decarbonisation and unlocks new resource bases. New technologies are already disrupting business models, and rapidly being incorporated across the energy value chain as an integral part of companies’ and governments’ responses to energy transitions. Meanwhile, cross-industry collaboration is growing as molecules are being utilised in new ways to promote decarbonisation and profitability. How this process evolves, and the strategies adopted by the energy industry, will determine the winners and losers in the sector, and the pace at which its transformation occurs.
