If you work in the energy sector, you see it coming: Too few new employees have the skills and experience to replace critical staff retiring or advancing out of their operating roles.
“The energy industry is at a crossroads, facing a skills shortage that could possibly threaten its growth and sustainability,” warns a recent People with Energy article. “The demand for skilled professionals in this sector has never been higher.”
Many of Knowledge Relay’s recent customers have sought out our data and analytics solutions precisely to address this crucial skills deficit:
- At one larger nuclear power utility company, for example, two key subject matter experts announced their retirements, and their site leader knew they would essentially be irreplaceable. Given a tight window to address their impending departure, the site leader came to Knowledge Relay anxious to automate their Project Controls reporting, improve analytics, and tailor dashboards to ensure newer, less experienced online and outage management staff could bridge the gap from the two savvy SMEs retiring.
- In another very recent real-world example, a nuclear power customer saw their senior Project Controls expert promoted, but no one else in their entire company understood the custom-made and unique project management solutions he had created. Realizing their internal IT team simply could never successfully build or support the in-house systems to replicate that one leader’s analytic capabilities, the company came to Knowledge Relay desperate for a ETL solution that aggregated all of their data sources, and generated the crucial data that less-experienced Project Controls managers could tap to emulate their historical decision-making success.
