Hydro Energy Group uses AI to support contractor wellbeing

An energy recruitment company is using artificial intelligence to help support the health and wellbeing of its contractors.

Recruiters at the Hydro Energy Group are using software to assess comments to ensure the wellbeing of its contractors. A statement from the company said the communications platform “picks up negative emotions, messages or stress signals and flags it to consultants who reach out to contractors and discuss their needs personally”.

Hydro Energy Group CEO Benjamin Burns said the software could be used to assess wellbeing on “particular projects, vessels, locations and then analysed to identify areas of improvement on certain jobs and to create better work environments moving forward by working with both the clients and candidates”.

“We are able to engage with our contractor base 24/7, 365 days a year. It means our contractors can let us know if they’re feeling unhappy about something… This feedback can also be issued to our clients so potential improvements can also be installed,” Burns said.

Hydro Energy Group is headquartered in the South of England, and specialises in offshore and marine, renewables and hydrographic survey markets.
