Energy & Natural Resources

Energize your organization’s leadership and talent for a successful energy transition

Today’s energy sector leaders must be prepared to navigate a series of complex challenges. Geopolitics, changing consumer behavior, environmental policy and investor expectations — to name just a few — are causing an unprecedented upheaval across energy markets, resulting in a global re-shaping of energy supply and demand. Market consolidations are continuing across all sectors of the energy industry. Digitalization—including automation, cybersecurity, and data analytics—is reshaping the job landscape. Meanwhile, demographic shifts, such as an aging workforce in traditional roles, and explosive growth in new energy jobs are creating the need for new talent strategies.

To ensure long-term stability, energy organizations must lead through these changes. Organizations must ensure they have a management team equipped to manage disruption and a leadership pipeline that reflects the behaviors, experiences, traits, and drivers they’ll need in the future.

Our energy and natural resources consultants have worked with the world’s leading oil and gas, mining, and power and utilities companies. Our energy sector leaders based in North America, EMEA, APAC and Latin America help energy businesses identify their next generation of leaders, drive employee engagement and prepare for digital transformation. We deliver fast, high-quality, targeted talent solutions covering every need—from organizational design, rewards and benefits, leadership development, assessment and succession and talent acquisition.

Where we can help

Your performance and results are what matters. We partner with you to continually evolve and optimize to reflect the changing needs of your business. We help our energy sector clients address challenges like these:

Building a talent pipeline

Approximately half of the energy industry’s workforce will retire within the next decade. As the current workforce heads into retirement, the energy industry must recruit and retain fresh talent. With nearly 1.9 million job opportunities in the oil, natural gas and petrochemical industries through 2035, there’s a vast opportunity for the industry to develop lifelong careers for a younger workforce.

We can help your organization build its next generation of leaders. We work with you to prepare for this talent shift by mobilizing and developing the talent that exists and anticipating and acquiring the talent that is needed. We also help you attract young professionals through learning and development and opportunities for career progression. We use our tools and assessments to help you determine what future leaders will look like and how that differs from current leadership, so you can formulate a strategy for recruiting and developing tomorrow’s talent.

Improving diversity and inclusion efforts

There’s a huge talent gap in many sectors of the energy industry when it comes to the recruitment of women and underrepresented groups. And a strong commitment to creating a diverse, inclusive workplace is a significant factor in attracting and retaining top talent.

Our energy consultants can help you create diversity and inclusion strategies that appeal to younger candidates—closing the gap on talent and skills shortages. Given our global reach, we help you source, recruit, engage and develop diverse talent, even in the scarcest of markets. We work with your business to assess its opportunities to build fair and equitable talent management structures and processes. We also help create high-impact career advancement programs for underrepresented talent.

Achieving digital transformation initiatives

A significant tech skills gap is stalling progress towards digitalization in the energy industry. And younger generations are reluctant to join the energy sector because they believe it lacks innovation. As a result, it’s difficult for energy employers to attract STEM students who are often drawn to other fields they perceive to be tech-driven.

We help organizations chart a course toward successful digital transformation by showing them how to recruit, develop, and retain the right talent. We offer assessments and success profiles that help businesses in the energy sector define their talent strategy, then guide their development, succession and promotion decisions.
