Oil & Gas: Everywhere You Need to be to Fuel the World

oil and gas insuranceWhile the overall trend is an increasing global workforce, the oil & gas industry has been ahead of this trend with large numbers of overseas employees since the 1970’s – often in high risk or remote markets.  Also, while many industries have seen under-employment, the oil & gas industry witnessed a 40% increase in workforce between 2007 and 2013, resulting today in a very tight labor market. 

An important part of recruitment & retention for this industry is the benefits package provided to employees.  Across all industries, including the oil & gas industry, health insurance is the 2nd most important piece of a recruitment package behind salary.  For those workers and their families living in higher risk or remote areas, this is even more critical.  Clements Worldwide has the benefits packages including health, personal accident, and life insurance to protect your employees and give them peace of mind. 

Clements Worldwide can also protect employers from other risks and liabilities that may be amplified in high-risk countries.
