First to go would be the HR Department....every last one of them.....and get back to a small Admin section.

Closely following them would be the drones that have created paperwork empires for themselves.

It would look like a Bowling Alley with all the Heads rolling about the place.

That wee callow fellow from the Shetland Islands would have a set of yellow footprints to stand on in front of my Desk all day long.

Instead of a Bentley parked out front....it would be a Diesel 4WD Pickup truck.
Unfortunately BRS are not alone in having an HR department that Iím guessing seemingly expands as the work dwindles. Thatís a common theme repeated over O&G companies at the moment.

As an outsider looking in not specifically aimed at BRS but the obsession in the sector to remove the unfashionable roles which did most of the work behind the scenes particularly at the outstations to me seems a massive error in judgement. Good people were lost as bean counters in far away corporate HQs had their red pens out. It just doesnít seem high level enough for management throughout the sector to get out there and understand how things actually work.

I heard a story recently about someone who was taken into a redundancy meeting to be told by her manager that he didnít know what she actually did! A call to the client would have cleared that up for him.
