In the energy sector, human resources professionals rarely enjoy a moment of calm. When commodity prices are booming, they are typically short on people to fill various roles; when prices plummet, they are short on positions and oversupplied with eligible workers. Mary Oldcorn, the director of human resources at Calfrac Well Services, is at the crux of this dilemma. But she has proven willing to go above and beyond the typical requirements of an HR professional, and has a deep understanding of how best to manage the volatile swings of the energy industry. During her time at Calfrac, she has continuously proven that approaching even the most difficult tasks with a positive attitude can go a long way.
