It's a scary thought that over 50% of all job seekers lie on resumes, CVs and applications, as a study last year from the Society of Human Resource Managers found. In the oil and gas industry more than any other industry, having unqualified people working on high-risk jobs can spell disaster. Safety can be compromised, putting workers, assets and the environment in harm's way and potentially sinking corporate reputations with it.
With the continuing low oil price environment, companies are striving for greater efficiency in process, assets and human capital to survive the fiscally challenging years ahead. The investment in a fly in, fly out (FIFO) or mobile workforce is a significant ongoing business expense, so driving cost savings in this space can have a significant impact to any business.
Bright People Technologies is assisting the industry's leading oil and gas companies to reduce workforce risk and improve efficiences by ensuring the right people are doing the right job at the right time.
