Petroleum Labour Market Information (PetroLMI)
The goal of the Petroleum Labour Market Information (PetroLMI), a Division of Enform, is to help industry develop a sustainable, skilled and productive oil and gas workforce. PetroLMI develops strategies, solutions, products and services to help the oil and gas industry address its human resource challenges. This is accomplished through provision of expert knowledge on petroleum labour market trends and strategic HR solutions. PetroLMI is the primary resource to address workforce development and labour market issues in the Canadian petroleum industry.
Some of the projects include the following:
- Labour Market Information and HR Trends: Petroleum Labour Market Information (formerly known as Petroleum Human Resources Council of Canada) had developed a model to provide up-to-date labour market information on workforce trends, issues and projections in the short, medium and long term (to 2020). Up-to-date and accurate labour market information (LMI) is vital for attracting, retaining and developing a qualified workforce for the upstream petroleum industry.
- Careers in Oil & Gas Website: The Petroleum Labour Market Informationl, with support from other associations (PSAC, CAPP, CAODC, EPAC, CEPA, CAGC and Enform), developed this website to attract a variety of skilled workers to the oil and gas industry, so the industry has the skilled employees it needs, when it needs them.
- Attraction & Retention Tools: One of the greatest challenges for the industry in meeting the demand for skilled labour is that, for the most part, the petroleum industry’s growth areas are in hard-to-recruit locations. Recruiting people to hard-to-recruit locations for work is just half the battle; companies and communities have to work even harder to get their good people to stay.
- Career Information and Occupational Tools: Occupation Profiles, created by the Petroleum Labour Market Information, details everything you need to know about work, education and career paths for a specific occupation in oil & gas.
