Florence Water Treatment Facility
Small water systems are struggling to recruit and keep experienced staff. What will happen when your system’s long-term operator or manager retires? Who knows all that they know? This workshop will focus on succession planning, operator recruitment, and staff retention strategies. We will discuss links between workforce development, system sustainability, and long-term planning.
In this workshop, you will learn how to:
– Analyze gaps in your current workforce
– Write compelling job descriptions
– Re-brand your workplace culture to attract qualified applicants to
your candidate pool
– Retain excellent talent long-term
– Recruit and work with Millennials
– Prepare your utility for the Baby Boomer retirement phase with
succession planning tips
