Roughly 50% of the utility industry’s workforce will be retirement eligible in this decade.
To maintain and expand the grid effectively, utilities must act now to capture legacy knowledge and attract the millennial workforce.
The utility industry is facing an unprecedented wave of retirement. Faced with this significant challenge, executives, project managers, and hiring teams must consider two core questions:
• How do you capture legacy knowledge before the outgoing workforce retires?
• How do you attract and train the next generation of utility employees?
There are no universal answers for these questions. However, there are proactive steps each utility can take to address these challenges head on.
