What matters most to employees in the energy sector? It isn’t money

Don Horne   


The fourth annual Global Energy Talent Index (GETI), the world’s largest energy recruitment and employment trends survey, shows that for employees in the petrochemical and energy sectors, it is more than just a paycheque that matters.

Key findings from the renewable sector include:

Career progression matters more to staff than pay
  • 90 per cent are engaged at work;
  • However only 29 per cent of petrochemical women employees say their organization values them; and
  • 70 per cent of respondents foresee pay increases in 2020 with a staggering 41 per cent expecting this to be more than five per cent.
Training is essential
  • 40 per cent of respondents report their company not regularly investing in their training.
Optimism and engagement won’t be enough to attract and retain a diverse workforce  
  • 89 per cent of respondents say they would consider switching to another sector in the next three years; and
  • Younger professionals are less positive on their company’s performance on diversity than their older peers.

The report is the industry’s most comprehensive salary survey featuring a wealth of salary information and contract rate data for both employers and professionals.
