Is Your Talent Pool Dwindling?

Is Your Talent Pool Dwindling?

As we continue to navigate a series of unprecedented economic events, market shifts, and more competition in the job market, you may have discovered your talent pool is shrinking.

In the energy industry, jobs are on the rise and there is plenty of work to go around, yet companies struggling to find and retain top talent. There’s a lot to consider when addressing this problem, one major aspect making an even more difficult challenge is inflation. With inflation on a historic rise, wages are struggling to keep up or falling behind altogether (in June, the U.S. inflation rate accelerated to 9.1%, the highest since November 1981).

Inflation has become the main point of discussion when executives are pondering the issue of staffing and retention. At CCL, we are taking proactive steps to help clients navigate these challenges by giving real-time insights and solutions.

Three areas that CCL has helped clients find success are:

  • Workforce Cost/Expenditures: Proactively engage with Contracts & Procurement departments to analyze workforce budgets and contractor wages that are affected by inflation. Provide informed recommendations on salary adjustments to improve retention while staying within budget.
  • Competitor Mapping: Conduct market mapping exercises to identify other projects that pose a risk to retention. We deliver insights to Project Directors and Project Stakeholders in an effort to reduce the risk of teams/contractors leaving for other projects in the industry (especially jobs with slightly higher pay). CCL helps inform decisions so our clients can keep their project teams intact.
  • Compensation Reports: Provide in-depth reports and data gathered by CCL on current compensation rates and benefits packages. This data gives employers a real-time look at what other options candidates are considering within their industry. This helps clients eliminate the guesswork when developing compensation packages and benefits.

Other aspects to consider are health insurance, childcare and remote working. We all know the demand for remote work is on the rise. However, this has also been the catalyst for employees to reconsider what is important to them.

It is hard to calculate all these factors and know how they might pose a risk to your organization. As a specialist agency, CCL has more than 40 years of experience navigating the ups and downs of the energy industry and its effects on the workforce. Utilize our expert insights that can help you evaluate your staffing requirements to find and keep top talent.


Peter Maltby, Founder and Chairman of CCL, Passes Away

Peter Maltby, Founder and Chairman of CCL, Passes Away

It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of Peter Maltby, Founder and Chairman of CCL Global at the age of 76 on 12th December 2021. Peter leaves behind his beloved wife of 46 years, Brigid, three sons, Chris, David & Edward and three Grandchildren, Abby, Max & Yena.

Peter, who began his career as a talented Civil Engineer before moving into the heady world of Contracts Management with NATO, Bechtel and KBR in the 1970s. There, his eye for detail and diligence was perfect for this remit and was duly noticed by his superiors as he moved up the ranks.

Due to the demand of international travel, Peter look for a business opportunity that would keep him closer to home and his young family. In 1981, Peter founded CCL within the burgeoning technical staffing and project consultancy industry in the oil and gas sector. He soon realized that this relatively new commercial space of supplying senior consultants to independent oil, gas and engineering companies had long-term commercial viability and real opportunity attached to it.

CCL had consistent and continuous success for the next several decades within the oil and gas sector and continues to thrive to present day providing a multitude of project and client services within diversified sectors.

Peter’s ethos was to run CCL in the manner that would treat clients, consultants, assigned personnel and internal staff the same, which he believed was not only the right thing to do but also the model that has set CCL down a successful path.

Christopher Maltby, Peter’s son and Managing Director of CCL ‘’Dad built an international business from scratch that was not only a commercial success, but a venture he thoroughly enjoyed. Especially forging numerous friendships and joyful experiences with clients, consultants, international partners and staff across the past 40 years. From a personal standpoint, I will miss him dearly for his positive, energetic spirit as well as what he has done for me during my lifetime. He was truly a fantastic father, mentor, boss and hero to not only myself but my two brothers. He taught me so much of life, endless amounts of wisdom within the business sphere and I wouldn’t be where I am now without him. He will be sorely missed by family, friends and everyone who knew him. In his honor, we will endeavor to manage the company in the same manner in which it was founded and managed for the past 40 years.’’

Through Peter’s vision and tenacity, CCL has flourished over the decades during numerous industry booms and busts. As a result, over 40 years later, CCL remains a family-run business operating in numerous countries throughout the world and across multiple diversified sectors.

His son, Christopher Maltby, CCL’s current Managing Director replaces his father as CCL’s Chairman.
