While the great crew change plagues the energy industry and poaching is at an all-time high, mid-size companies can compete against the giants when searching for the best and brightest, said Rodney Smoczyk, global director of talent acquisition at EDG, at the People in Energy Summit conference in Houston.
“In the war for talent, there are the haves and have nots,” he said. “Which of these you are is based more on how you package it then on what you actively have in comparison to others. The package is your (EVP) or overall employee experience.”
When companies perfect their EVP, the burden of recruiting top talent during these trying times is lessened, he mentioned. EVP can fall under the employer branding category and is defined as a set of associations and offerings provided by an organization in return for the skills, capabilities and experiences an employee brings to the organization.
