Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
With the current competition that exists within and of the workers in the oil fields Midwest, USA, many companies focus in keeping their best workers at any price. If a company is not focusing in this area there is a big threat that the workers leave when a new opportunity arises. To somewhat lead the companies out in this huge geographical area this thesis will try to map out the areas in which a company should put their effort. The method in this thesis will be to find respondents working in this area and ask them impartially and see what they really care about. Interviews have been carried out with 5 different companies working in the oil fields, 15 respondents and in two states. There has been deeper understanding gained in some areas with this thesis but the most useful one is to which extent the working environment plays a huge role in keeping the workers. However to “steal” a worker is offering something more tangible, such as better compensation and benefits.
