In 2020 the world changed dramatically. As energy and utility companies enter 2021, what workplace transformations will the new year bring? Check out our 5 Culture Trends for energy and utility companies in 2021 and see how you can be prepared to help your employees thrive, no matter what new challenges may come their way.

Culture Trend #1: Emerging from crisis, companies focus on culture.


Workplace culture is in flux. Workers in this industry are providers of critical infrastructure, especially crucial in times of crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic. Energy and utility employees feel the events of 2020 created a “new normal” for the sector, according to the 2021 Global Energy Talent Index. Only 14% of workers in the industry say they expect things to go back to the way they were before the pandemic. Social distancing, workspace flexibility, and reduced headcount were at the top of the list of anticipated changes–all of which will continue to impact workplace culture.

A SHRM study found two out of three companies reported keeping employee morale up to be difficult during the pandemic, and one-third said maintaining company culture was a challenge.
