The Problem: What You Don't Know Can Hurt You

Your Company Has a Problem
As much as 60% of your workforce may be looking for a new job. And the number one reason an employee might leave is compensation.

Compensation is the Number 1 Reason
for Leaving a Job

Right now, your competitors are posting jobs, searching through candidate resumes, and networking with potential hires, including your employees. With a limited pool of educated and experienced candidates with the technical expertise to find, develop, and manage major oil and gas projects, your competitors may have a good shot at hiring away some of your most talented people simply by hitting the mark on their compensation.

Making matters worse, the average cost to your company to replace an energy industry employee lost because of turnover is between $25,000 and $30,000.

At the same time, you don't want to overpay underqualified employees, negatively impacting the profitability of your company. You need to know what employees and potential employees should be earning.

Your Company Has An Opportunity
By being proactive in seeking out the best candidates for your company's positions, your organization can become an industry leader, or stay in front of the pack.

Offering competitive salaries that compensate employees well is a key component of hiring the most talented individuals. Better compensation can allow you to bring the best talent into your organization.
