  Human Capital, Succession Planning, Talent & Performance Management for Energy Industry

Building strong competency development, succession planning and talent management programs for your people.

Date: 14 - 17 May 2018
Venue: Johannesburg, South Africa


In the last 10 years our industry has lost 231,000 years of critical cumulative knowledge…how do you compensate for that?

The outlook for human capital in the oil / gas / power industry is bleak: a rapidly aging workforce; a war for top technical talent; inability to replace exiting knowhow; dwindling undergraduate enrollments in earth sciences and petro-chemical engineering and the list goes on.

The future is one where we will have to learn to do much more with fewer people…and in less time. It will be harder to attract, skill, engage and retain the people we want. It's no wonder that demand for "soft skills" training has now overtaken demand for technical training in our business.

This course is the A to Z on strategically managing and optimising your human capital to full potential in today's difficult business climate. It is a highly practical, hands-on course that shows you exactly how to tackle those intractable HR problems:
■ resistance from employees
■ lack of senior executive support for HR
■ lack of funding
■ HR not a priority/not taken seriously
■ favoritism and political games

This course will give you the knowledge and tool to excite and re-energise your people and to inspire a new-found confidence and trust in HR in your business. Through discussion, examples and activities you will discover the way forwards. The industry insights, templates and models will put you ahead of your competitors ahead of the game in designing and delivering winning HR initiatives which will earn your HR team praise and recognition and will take your people to the next level.

This practical, hands-on course will have you excited by the new possibilities to drive performance in your organisation. The examples given are proven winners and the materials provide for easy adaptation to your business. Within 4 days of completing the course you can be forging positive change for your organisation and your people.
