"The most expensive part of a search
is the empty seat."
CHARLES BAMFORD Founder and Managing Partner, Rockwood Energy Search
It's not easy to hire top performers in the energy industry. There is a limited supply of experienced people, especially at the senior professional to SVP level, where base salaries are $100,000 to $250,000.
But you can't afford to have key positions go unfilled while you explore the possibilities. An empty seat means lost business opportunities. An unproductive search process is a time sink for your executives and HR staff.
You can't afford to hire the wrong person, either. Not when it can cost you 150% of the position's base salary - and major opportunity costs, as well.
Hiring Top Performers Is Harder Than Ever
Despite fluctuations in the health of the US and global economies, the energy business continues to thrive and staffing requirements grow. Firms in all parts of the industry find that landing top candidates is more difficult every day. This is particularly true at the senior professional to the SVP level, where base salaries are in the $100K to $250K range.
One main reason: a limited supply of experienced people. After Enron collapsed in 2001, the industry shrank, people left the business, and others did not enter. For a number of reasons, demand for experienced talent is expected to exceed supply for some time to come.
The key human resources issue is how to solve the problem of recruiting from a limited supply of experienced people.
