SkillSurvey will be attending the Independent Energy Human Resources Association annual conference which takes place September 24-25. Human resources executives in the energy industry, including oil and gas, utilities, engineering and construction firms, and service companies, face new challenges related to recruiting, hiring, and retaining employees.

The “Great Crew Change” is taking place, making it even more challenging to find qualified candidates and hiring managers face daily pressure to fill positions quickly, while also dealing with a large contingent workforce and fast-moving, project-based demands. Simultaneously, HR leaders are challenged to mitigate staffing-related risks, such as on-the-job injuries or environmental accidents caused by human error, which could be a result of actions by employees who don’t adhere to safety standards and the implementation of a safety culture.
