Chemistry for You.
This report valuably complements the work which has been conducted since 2015 on the different facets of diversity and inclusion in the petrochemical sector, by addressing the age-related inclusion and diversity challenges facing the European petrochemical sector. Like many other industrial sectors in Europe, the petrochemical workforce is ageing, with large numbers of employees heading for retirement between now and 2025. At the same time, accessing Europe’s young talent pool may prove difficult because of the drop in the younger population’s interest in petrochemicals. Managing 4 or even 5 generations at the workplace also entails defining career paths which remain relevant and attractive to these different generations while fostering one’s inclusion and diversity policies and practices.
