Hula Partners is Exclusive Program Partner for LEAP HR Oil and Gas Conference

HOUSTON - MARCH 28, 2017

March 28, 2017 – Hula Partners, LLC (Hula), makers of Kahuna, the first and only solution to directly address the competency management gap for all workforces, announces it is an Expertise Partner for the LEAP HR Oil and Gas Conference 2017 hosted by Hanson Wade on April 25 and 26. LEAP stands for Leadership, Engagement, Analytics, and Process and represents the “leaps” that HR leaders in the oil and gas industry must make to truly change and improve their companies from the inside out, especially today in this challenging business environment.


Hula, along with OneSubsea and the University of Houston, will present a discussion on why competencies are the key element in understanding your organization’s capabilities and how to measure those business and HR outcomes. All three organizations are committed to promoting awareness of this important strategy and will be sharing their thoughts on how to best incorporate these practices into your company’s business processes. Other speakers include senior management in human resources and talent management from companies such as Sasol, Weatherford, Parker Drilling, BHP Billiton, GE Oil & Gas, Diamond Offshore, and more.


“As the price of oil continues to climb and companies begin to hire once again, organizations are reevaluating their current people strategies around all aspects of talent management. Competencies are playing a large role in the development of new talent management programs as they are being used as the currency to connect the different aspects: recruiting, development, and retention. The LEAP HR Oil and Gas Conference is the perfect place to have these conversations with leading industry professionals about moving forward in this time as the war on talent continues to grow. “ says Tom White, Kahuna Product Manager, Hula Partners.


“Oil and gas companies in 2017 look a lot different to the way they looked in 2016 and in 2015” said Gareth Pearce, Managing Director, LEAP HR at Hanson Wade, the organizers of LEAP HR Oil & Gas. “As they adapt to a  lower for longer operating environment, they are actively looking to challenge traditional thinking about how to build a successful oil and gas business. Among other things, that means looking for partners who can help them make smarter people decisions and thrive in any operating environment. We’re thrilled to count Hula Partners among that select group.”


Hula Partners is excited to be among other exhibitors such as PwC, Arthur J Gallagher & Co, Right Management, and KellyOCG.
