As the energy industry looks to what lies ahead, agility, courage and resolve in the face of change will be vital.
The energy transition will require new skills sets; to better embrace technology and automation around how they operate and to support companies as they transition to new, greener energy futures.
Human Resource (HR) functions have a central role to play in this process. Having demonstrated how critical they are to a company during the pandemic, there is now a window of opportunity to embed themselves as a core part of any future strategic conversations or indeed as a critical leader in handling external disruptors.
So how can HR leads use the lessons learned through pandemic to help their organisations put forward a bold plan for the future?
“The role of HR as a strategic partner has become much more important - giving advice to leadership teams and being part of leadership decisions. The pandemic has accelerated this and it is clear from the pandemic how much organisations have relied on HR Professionals.”
We carried out a series of interviews with HR Professionals from across the sector to understand the common themes that will be vital as companies develop an agile workforce ready to succeed.
