The World Petroleum Council Young Professionals Committee launched the 2021 edition and received considerable global input
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
Our 2021 edition of the WPC Youth Survey is focused on 'Youth Perception of the Oil & Gas Industry: Attracting and Retaining Talent'. In an era of energy landscape transformations, identifying, attracting and retaining talents with the skills to unlock opportunities will be a critical factor in the industry's success. On a regular basis, the WPC surveys the perception of students and young professionals (up to the age of 35) on the global Oil & Gas Industry - their drivers and motivators to work in the sector (career development, compensation and rewards, job security, workplace environment, industry reputation). The results of the survey will be shared in December 2021 at the 23rd World Petroleum Congress in Houston, and will provide holistic and fact-based perspectives on talent attraction and retention.
In February 2021 the WPC Youth Survey reached another important milestone to become a recognised reference for the oil & gas industry through the set up of the WPC Youth Survey Experts Committee. A group of HR Experts from different companies, backgrounds and a variety of geographical origins, who provide their guidance and knowledge to the WPC Youth Survey Team.
