TTLT Q1/2023 Updates
Latest news from the TTLT, an EPCA committee made up of people from diverse backgrounds of EPCA Member Companies representatives - reflecting on how to ensure that the Petrochemical industry attracts and retains the best talents, necessary to ensure a smart, resilient, sustainable and inclusive world.
Talents of Today, Leaders of Tomorrow (TTLT)

In January, the Talents of Today Leaders of Tomorrow Committee (TTLT) met to plan for the year ahead. They discussed the continuation and setup of the EPCA STEM Day event and reviewed the EPCA board's input on expanding the theme to include work-life balance's impact on the industry's younger workforce. They also talked about a joint project with the SCPC on attracting and retaining the industry's missing workforce, including topics like mental well-being, sustainability, and ESG.

During their March 16 meeting, TTLT agreed to focus on ESG benchmarking and conducting a study on young workforce perception and recommendations for improving graduate attraction and retention.

Leadership Reimagined

For the past two years, members of the EPCA's TTLT have conducted interviews with several industry leaders to explore potential solutions to current challenges and ways to create a more inclusive and sustainable future for the petrochemical industry. We are pleased to present a highlight video featuring key messages on the theme of Future Leadership.
