Employment in the oil & gas – and mining industry offers highly competitive. Wages and benefits, especially in rural or remote areas continue to rise. For example, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), wages for coal miners are 30% higher than the wage earned by the average American.

Safety remains a top priority and #1 business issue for organizations in the mining sector. World markets both on the supply side and the demand side provide large swings in cost pressure and revenue opportunity. Trading organizations and hedge funds influence prices. In particular, costs of fossil fuel including natural gas, petroleum oil, and coal are significantly influenced by supply/demand along with expectations of future markets.

Within the energy sector, alternate sources of fuel and energy may warrant a degree of consideration by many oil & gas organizations. All forms of mining require expensive capital investments, and frequently depend on the use of specialized contracting firms or sub-contracting organizations for portions of the day-to-day operations.

Talent acquisition, cost of talent, and related topics are increasingly becoming top-of-mind business issues faced by oil & gas organizations and other mining operations. As Baby-Boomers near retirement age, a talent gap widens in most energy-based companies and mining operations.

Market uncertainty, public opinion, cost pressures, government regulation, and globalization each impact the oil & gas sector as well as other mineral mining operations.
