HR in Energy & Utilities

HR in the energy and utilities environment is a challenging and demanding role. There are over 7.8 million jobs in the energy industry of the United States, serving in areas such as electric power generation, energy efficiency and more. In addition to jobs in oil and gas, there is also a rising interest and evolution toward renewable, clean energy like wind and solar.

In the energy and utilities sector, HR is in charge of recruiting talent and hiring employees as well as providing them with training and development. They must also consider employee relations, creating consistency and reliability across workers’ day-to-day as well as in the event of potential workplace issues such as harassment or discrimination.

Human resources are faced with a number of challenges in the energy, utilities and oil and gas industry, which include:

  • Staying up to date with rapidly changing technologies and new regulations
  • Working with workforce boards, unions and member employees.
  • Changing the landscape of employee relations to match the demands of an increasingly millennial workforce, which now sits at about 32% of the energy sector.
  • Overcoming the generational divide across a workforce that is diverse in both age and experience.
  • Finding ways to promote diversity and inclusion in a continually male-dominated workforce.
  • Dealing with a high turnover rate as employees search for opportunities elsewhere.
  • Lacking skilled labor to take on lifelong management positions.
  • Hiring employment from external sources rather than promoting internally.
  • Competing for top tech talent as the industry continues to advance and demand new skill sets
