With a shrinking pool of available talent and a wave of older workers reaching retirement age, the offshore industry needs to adopt innovative strategies for developing the next generation of talent. Unlike prior generations in today’s workforce, people in their mid-20s to early 40s have been immersed in technology and grew up using laptops, computers, smartphones, iPads, and all other new gadgets.
The offshore industry must adapt to changing digital times and highlight its technical depth by asking the right questions to engage the younger generation workforce. This workforce is very mobile, consuming content, gathering information, and engaging in knowledge-share and communications for longer periods throughout the day via small-screen, connected devices. To engage and train younger generations, digital must be an integral component of new operating models and talent strategies. Digitally-enabled asset inspections, subsurface analyses, and self-diagnosing wells will transform exploration and production.
In addition to paper-based or traditional classroom modalities for training and engaging workforce, digital platforms (such as Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and AI-based training tools), create more engaging, satisfying work environments and accelerate workforce performance and productivity3,4,5.
With the constraints on workplace productivity and learning, workforce curriculum transformation is as important to the corporate balance sheet as low fixed asset costs. It must “meet the learner” on their terms to successfully transfer important knowledge. From Sales to Engineering, to Technical Support; even extending from internal to also include external knowledge share… it is all critical!
Key Questions to Consider in Learning
- Content should be convenient, readily accessible: wherever the staff is located, no matter their device, and no matter the time of day (or night).
- And more than that, the learning program must engage the user despite the distractions or external claims for their attention.
