Navigating talent challenges in the energy industry

Organisations in the energy industry face a continuous challenge: the recruitment and retention of the skilled workers essential for their success. Talented employees with the most sought-after skills are becoming increasingly scarce, with 20% of the workforce predicted to have left the industry by 2025. Simultaneously, the ongoing energy transition has amplified the demand for skilled talent, creating a dual pressure on organisations to address workforce gaps while adapting to evolving industry needs.

To recruit, retrain and retain the talent needed to outperform the competition, you need to need to deliver an exceptional employee experience. To do so, Human Capital Management (HCM) must become Human Experience Management (HXM). Organisations that embrace HXM achieve better business results, higher productivity, better revenue per employee and lower employee turnover.  

84% of leaders point to employee experience as a top priority.
But only 9% believe they are ready to address the issue.
