Energy Skills Gap in U.S. Hindering Oil and Gas Boom

Manpower recently released the report Strategies to Fuel the Energy Workforce. According to projections, jobs in the energy industry are expected to nearly double to 3 million by 2020, yet Manpower research shows 72% of energy employers say the inability to attract quality candidates will impact North American competitiveness.

Manpower found that more than half (58%) of energy employers say they are challenged to find the right talent, and three out of four (74%) think the problem will worsen in the next five years. The reason: a unique "double squeeze" of the energy workforce, fueled by shortages of skilled workers at both entry and senior levels. This double squeeze is being driven by three major factors: an aging workforce, creating a shortage of experienced talent; rapid advances in technology that are changing skill requirements; and limited focus on STEM education, resulting in fewer interested and qualified entry-level job seekers.
