42pc in energy sector ‘satisfied with job’
Houston, May 2, 2012
Forty-two per cent of the employees in the energy sector who took part in an industry poll are satisfied with their current positions, said a report.
As the global skills shortage continues to challenge many organisations, 33 per cent of respondents felt that they could be persuaded to change jobs, while the remaining 25 per cent claimed to be actively looking for work, added the job satisfaction survey recently conducted by OilCareers.com, a top oil and gas jobs portal.
The poll was conducted over at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston.
“We expected to find a lot of job seekers at OTC this year, but we are surprised at the number of respondents who claimed that they would consider a move if another role provided better prospects,” said Mark Guest, managing director of OilCareers.com
“Employers need to be aware of this if they are going to attract and retain the best industry talent. It is not just about the financial rewards, but the training and development prospects, as well as the potential to grow within an organisation,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
