The Solution

eQ8 was engaged to help accelerate SWP capability and capacity, while creating a long-term view across core but distinct business units. eQ8 worked with stakeholders across the business to build future workforce views that responded to the shifting structural challenges within the energy sector. eQ8 was required to build out an internal maturity plan that supported the internal capability uplift of resources, enabling long-term ownership of SWP.

Why eQ8:

  • Philosophy

    Accelerated the maturity and adoption of SWP through the delivery of targeted training and capability uplift across internal resources, enabling velocity in building plans.

  • Process

    Implemented processes to start embedding SWP into broader financial and business planning processes, proactively aligning cross-functionally and capture the workforce implications of business decisions.
