For years the industry has been faced with the inevitable outcome to its history of matching workforce levels to commodity prices – the Great Crew Change. A graph of the industry's age distribution looks like a cross-section of a canyon – decent numbers of young people, a lot of older people, and not much in the middle. In these pages we examine the current issues plaguing the industry in terms of recruiting, retention, training, knowledge transfer, etc. and offer suggestions.
