We’re excited to have released a new workforce infographic that explores a trend that has become a growing issue for many of our customers: the impending workforce crisis. As many as half of the skilled workers at energy, chemical and oil & gas companies are heading towards retirement — and not nearly enough new hires are available to replace them. Here are just some of the numbers:

  • ½ of the electric utility workforce will retire in the next 10 years
  • 20% of power & utilities employees are eligible for retirement (and 39% will become eligible in 5 years)
  • 44% of oil & gas professionals say skill shortages are the biggest threat to their industry

To see more data and our suggestions on how you can address this issue, view the workforce crisis infographic.
