Implementing New Strategies to Attract and Retain Workers
Hiring for the Energy Transition
Taking Diversity and Inclusion Seriously and Authentically
Canada’s oil and gas industry is anticipated to experience net hiring requirements of 19,820 jobs over the forecast period: 7,840 due to industry activity and 11,980 from age-related attrition.
Workforce demographics are a concern for the industry. The labour pool is shrinking due to ageing workers and difficulties reattracting experienced workers, combined with challenges attracting new entrants and disruptions to the usual talent pipelines due to COVID-19. This may be partially offset by workers delaying their retirements in the face of the long economic downturn.
Non-traditional equity partners
Innovative business arrangements, such as opportunities for Indigenous communities to have an equity stake in planned development projects, are
gaining traction in the energy industry.
Remote work solutions
The work from home shift that accompanied COVID-19 may remain in some capacity and has the potential to transform workplace culture. The industry will need to consider how this might change attraction and retention practices, and the associated impact on the development — or transformation — of leadership and management skills.
