DRIVING ENERGY TRANSITION, SECURITY AND DECARBONISATION

ENABLING A PEOPLE-CENTRED ENERGY FUTURE

As the energy transition accelerates, fuelled by groundbreaking clean energy technologies, the global spotlight on talent strategy intensifies. This has increased pressure in the industry to recruit, retain, and upskill existing talent to bridge skill gaps, exacerbated by retiring professionals leaving the sector, digital transformation creating new roles, and talent drain to technology sectors.

Navigating the energy transition and attaining net zero targets by 2050 will be a generational challenge, with STEM millennial and Gen Z graduates of today, being the energy leaders of tomorrow. With this in mind, the sector is actively redefining itself to be an attractive career proposition for the next generation of talent. From creating flexible working environments which offer employees better work life balance to fostering a culture of purpose that aligns with their values.

Despite evidence clearly demonstrating that a diverse and inclusive workforce fosters profit and innovation, yet only a tiny proportion of women continue to enter the energy industry in spite of a large cohort of STEM graduates. Creating a diverse and inclusive workforce remains a strategic necessity to enable a low carbon future.

The EGYPES 2024 Equality in Energy Conference will bring together global industry experts, including organisational change management and inclusion and sustainability leaders to drive the discussion on how talent strategy is becoming an existential priority in creating a people-centred energy future.
