Rethinking Recognition In A Downturn To Transform Engagement In Canadian Oil & Gas

It’s been a tough couple of years for the Canadian Oil & Gas industry. Staff are being asked to do more with less, and still deliver great work for clients and stakeholders even in the context of a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous operating environment.

And in an economic context where budgets are tighter than ever, it’s harder than ever to reward your people for the work they are doing in the way you’d like – so what levers can you still pull to drive engagement, productivity, performance and great work in Canadian Oil & Gas right now?

This unique webinar has been specifically designed to give you the answer to this question. By shining a light on how a handful of Canadian Oil & Gas firms are challenging traditional thinking around recognition, appreciation and engagement, you will walk away with actionable, practical tools you can put into practice right away.

Among the issues which will be addressed:

  • Innovative, low cost and no cost approaches to using recognition to enable a more engaged workforce do great work in a challenging operating climate
  • How some Canadian Energy firms are gaining a competitive advantage by deploying simple recognition tactics and driving productivity in the process
  • How you can overcome the internal barriers inside your company which are stopping your people doing great work

And among the case studies you will hear:

  • How a large integrated oil and gas company in Western Canada managed to increase efficiencies and save costs by rethinking recognition across its business
  • How a large upstream focused oil and gas company has been tailoring employee appreciation through the downturn to unlock the creativity and best efforts of its people
  • And how a large oil and gas industry services company is challenging traditional thinking around recognition to prepare for the point at which the market turns and it needs to recruit and retain top talent.
