Download to read offline

Hiring contractors has been a long time energy industry practice. It’s understandable given the difficulty of attracting skilled workers to areas that have challenging staffing needs. This practice, though, can come at a high cost for companies and brings increased operational risk.

A fresh approach to the energy workforce of the future uses three strategies: getting a 360º view into the extended labor force; adopting a zero-based approach to workforce planning; and using digital technologies to intelligently automate work and augment workers.

The outcome? Opportunities to achieve greater productivity and cost savings.
