Ok, let’s cut to the chase. Digital Transformation is critical to the survival of your business. It’s no longer a question of if but when you digitalise.
Introducing our new Candidate Manager, Nicky Gaddu
In a recent blog entitled ‘bringing home the brand before the bread’ Andrew was all loved-up about doing and doing the right thing (not read it yet? When you’ve finished reading mine (ahem) you can check it out here.) Amongst his many words of wisdom was a sentence that pretty much sums up our approach to recruitment here at Haig. So, here it is in all its 12-word glory “To me, life is about relationships and you only need a few.” He then went on to say “when a great Job Order is acquired, you give it everything and more, to the point of obsession”
Any manufacturers out their will likely be familiar with the Japanese term Kaizen; the quest for continuous improvement. And, whilst we’re not talking production line adjustments or plant process tweaks, here at Haig HQ we’re always asking ourselves, “What can we do better?”
Why doing what’s right is the only way
My role as Candidate Manager here at Haig means I’m all about looking after my candidates. My focus is always on helping them to take that next step in their career journey. And this means making sure that when I put them forward for a role, not only is the job right but the business and its culture is a great match too.
Transforming businesses digitally, I keep hearing is straightforward. It's always followed by a 'but', but no matter which way you slice it, it's not straightforward!
Perhaps one of the greatest impacts on global GDP is from the Oil, Gas, Petrochemicals sectors.
If you hadn't noticed the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) is already upon us and the benefits across SMBs and large enterprise are already being seen. Cost savings, new revenue models, increased productivity and efficiencies are significant.
Transforming the Enterprise is no easy series of projects. Several have tried and many have failed. But what choice do you have as the world becomes consumed by Digitalization? And as the economic growth rests with those successfully digitalized firms?
With ongoing and increasing demand for Energy, Oil & Gas is seeing the return of investment and activity in the value chain. But how can companies ensure productive and cost-effective solutions for one of the major components; the worker undertaking these operations?
Is it a Bird? Is it a Plane? Is it a POC? A Prototype? No! it's an MVP!
The Upstream Oil Companies are becoming more cost, energy and environmentally efficient each day.
I am worried the culture of "Fail Fast and Learn Quick" is becoming somewhat of a cliché or at least over-hyped and in so doing will be ignored by those who are in a position to make best use of it.
Is there anything more fundamental to the 4th Industrial Revolution and its subsets; the Data Economy, Smart Manufacturing and the Digital Supply Chain than The Cyber Twin?
We started our journey through the CSFs of Digital Culture a couple of weeks ago, starting out with a tone of "Cultural Offense" and then last week re-orientating the business to "Customer-Centricity".
Oil & Gas is one of the most data and asset rich industries in the world, be that Wells, Rigs, Plants, Pipelines, Refineries, Tanks or Vessels. Keeping those assets running at peak performance and low cost is an essential part of the business.
