Resilience – The Most Important Tool In The Workplace Today?
Resilience is currently the defining word in Oil & Gas, not only for employees but for corporations as a whole. In times of acute price sensitivity and drastic cost cutting, business situations become exceptionally fluid and the ability to adapt swiftly to the ensuing changes can be a make or break advantage. Fortunately, resilience is not a trait that people either have or do not have but rather involves behaviours, thoughts and actions that can be learned and developed. So how do we generate more of this type of flexibility in order to make ourselves, and by extension the companies we work for, smarter and fitter for the present economic fluctuations? Read the full article from Louise Martin.

Companies Failing to Fathom Consequences - FQM P&J Article
Companies failing to fathom consequences: It would appear that the connections being made between cutbacks and safety are justified and also nothing new. In times of extreme market pressure, the negative impact of austerity measures upon safety becomes a hot topic, especially against a backdrop of intensified cost reductions, but are these fears truly justified? And if so, what is that nature of the risk that is run? These are the questions that came to mind when I read recently that an industry regulator in Norway was "...concerned that oil companies and service firms didn’t understand the consequences of the cuts they were making."
