Overview

As Baby Boomers head into retirement, recruiting and retaining the newer workforce has become a critical component to the advancement of the oil and gas industry. However, key findings show that skilled labor shortages are intensifying and broadly affecting industries across the board. Additionally, while the younger generations bring with them new skills, technological expertise, and innovative mindsets, they also bring a shift in workplace expectations and preferences paired with a 3x higher attrition rate than previous generations. In this environment, it’s crucial for oil and gas companies to adapt, discard old assumptions, and take a closer look at engaging the current and upcoming workforce.

In this essential program filled with up-to-the-minute data and case studies, you’ll gain knowledge and best practices from industry colleagues on how to attract, manage, and retain the next generational workforce. You’ll leave with takeaways for simple shifts you can make within your company to gain the edge with top talent, and information to share with executives and decision makers to spark action within your company. Join us for this hands-on, highly-interactive, tangible takeaways symposium.

Agenda

7:30 – 8:00 a.m. :: Registration & Continental Breakfast


8:00 – 10:00 a.m. :: Houston, we have a (perception) problem”: Retaining Millennials in the Oil & Gas Industry 2020 – 2025

The Oil & Gas industry is attracting Millennial employees more successfully than the Construction, Power & Utilities and Water / Wastewater industries. The American Petroleum Institute estimates, in its 2018 study “Millennials in the Oil & Gas and Petrochemical Industries”, that 475,000 Millennials were employed in the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical industry as of 2015 – the largest amount of Millennials in any blue-collar industry.

Yet 66% of all U.S. Millennials expect to work for their current employers less than 2-5 years. Will Oil and Gas employers be able to retain Millennials as their share of employment in managerial, business and financial occupations rise in all industries, just as Baby Boomers fully leave the workforce?

Millennials recognize that Oil and Gas pays very well but many perceive it as an old, dirty, not-good-for-the-environment, hire and fire industry. In this fast-pace, interactive presentation you’ll learn who the Millennials really are, their values, their career drivers, their career “non-starters” and the disconnect of “what they want” versus Gen X and Boomer employees. You’ll leave knowing the 5 things you must do by 2020 to increase retention and keep the competitive advantage you hold in the War for Millennial talent.
