Abstract

Faced with a critical shortage of professionals in key technical and operational areas, oil and gas companies are bringing back retirees, tapping new sources for skills, looking to accelerate professional development, and raising sign-on fees to attract seasoned staff. As activity and investment in the petroleum sector continues to put huge strain on delivery capacity, the industry has been unable to keep pace with building its human resources.
