Global Energy Challenges: Focus on Talent
4 October 2019

The technological shifts taking place around the world entail fundamental changes in the global labour market. The approaches to labour management being adopted and the nature of organizational models within companies are evolving. Globally, HR management is focused on training, attracting, and retaining highly effective experts. Today, talent is the key competitive advantage in the high-tech, diversified and creative economy of the future. International analysts state that by 2030 the talent deficit will increase by 11% globally, and left unchecked, this could result in USD 2.1 trillion of unrealized global income. As a result, the global demand for talent is set to intensify, with the values of lifelong education and personal growth already included in several national strategic priorities, including in Russia. 2019 saw the inception of the Global Talent Index in the Energy Sector , which shows that the energy sectors are suffering from a 57.6% talent crunch. Given the key role of the energy system in the Russian economy, it is vital to focus on effective tools that can help to attract the best talent, provide them with incentives, and develop their skills. How effective are the current approaches to HR development and are there any niches for new initiatives at both national and international levels? Are there any successful national advanced training programmes? Who is the key player in respect of career changes: the state, employers, or the employees themselves? What needs to be considered when working with talent in the energy sector? What conditions must be created in order to develop and retain talent? What is preventing the transition from mass education to individual educational tracks?
