  2. 2. When it comes to top talent… The energy industry is facing several important employment-related challenges in the coming years.
  3. 3. Jobs aplenty The industry supports an estimated 2.1 million jobs, but could create another 1.1 million by the end of the decade.
  4. 4. Mass retirement looms On top of that need, the average age for an energy industry employee is ~50 years old, with as many as 40% of the world’s petroleum engineers retiring in the next decade.
  5. 5. Clearly, attracting top talent will take a big commitment from oil and gas companies when it comes to compensating their employees. Enter ConocoPhillips.
