Last month, we shared a blog post with a fact from our latest HR Trends and Insights report, Shifting Priorities and a Shifting Workforce. The report outlines the key business shifts the Canadian oil and gas industry has witnessed over the last several years. With these shifts have come the need for new skills and knowledge. Well, we’re back with another fact today – and like Fact #1 – it’s related to technology.

Fact #2: More technologists are needed in the field.
