ATLANTA, Ga. and MELBOURNE, Australia (November 30, 2011) – Multinational Talent Management solutions provider, PageUp People, is moderating a panel discussion at the People in Energy Summit, which is taking place in Houston, Texas today and tomorrow. Led by PageUp People’s Senior Vice President, Global Marketing, Pamela Bartz, the panel participants include senior HR leaders from Cameron International and Baker Hughes.

Bartz commented, “The oil and energy sector are suffering from ‘brain drain’ as experienced resources retire from the workforce. Equally troubling is the ramp up time to develop new talent. Hiring requirements in this sector are complex and highly skilled resources are in demand. PageUp People assists these employers by enabling them to align their multinational Talent Management practices with corporate strategies, while also building a global pipeline of critical skills to sustain future growth.”

The panel, titled “The Changing Face of the Oil & Energy Workforce – Crystallizing Potential in the Industry’s Future Leaders,” examines workforce trends in this dynamic and diverse sector. Discussion topics include how to acquire and develop critical skill sets; ensuring the mobility of talent to meet project demands worldwide; what global sourcing channels can be leveraged; the role of data in driving better human capital decision-making; and how technology supports talent management initiatives.

Bartz concluded, “As with many sectors, the oil and energy industries have identified how human capital can be a key competitive differentiator that is as important as their other investments. PageUp People has considerable expertise in designing and delivering high growth talent management strategies that foster favorable business outcomes. We’re excited to support the People in Energy Summit through our participation and look forward to speaking with companies in the oil and energy industries about our solutions.”
