Gurgaon, India (PressExposure) February 25, 2009 -- Global Energy Talent announced today a partnership agreement with BÃ³ LÃ¨ Associates to jointly help energy companies source and deploy talent for their projects in Asia. Global Energy Talent provides talent management solutions for the energy industry worldwide. BÃ³ LÃ¨ is Asia's leading executive search firm and the largest in China. With this partnership, energy companies have access to highly effective recruitment solutions for technical and techno-commercial positions throughout Asia including China, Malaysia, India, Vietnam and Indonesia.
The energy industry, particularly the Oil & Gas and the Renewable energy sectors, is expected to grow in Asia despite the global economic slowdown. However, there is a shortage of skilled technical and commercial professionals that work on projects to fulfill this demand. Globally there is expected to be a 40% crunch of technical talent in this industry by 2010. This 'talent crunch' is not only limiting future growth and development, but also seriously impacting current operations in the field.
Finding the right person for these jobs can be complicated. Often the best judges of technical talent, such as geosciences or production engineering, are professionals who work in those disciplines. Global Energy Talent uses a network of subject matter experts with more than 700 years of cumulative hands-on experience in the industry to evaluate candidates. As a result, clients are ensured of top quality professionals with a strong technical and cultural fit.
"This partnership brings together two key capabilities- deep industry and domain expertise in energy and an extensive on-the-ground footprint across Asia," said Yagya Ahuja, CEO of Global Energy Talent. "Companies in the energy industry that are looking to hire," said Louisa Wong Rousseau, Group Managing Director of BÃ³ LÃ¨, "can be assured of finding the right people for the right job at the right place and time throughout the region."
