Creating a talent pipeline 

Monday, June 19, 2023  

3 – 4 p.m. CT 

Workforce and succession planning is vital to business operations continuity and the ongoing success of public power utilities. It creates a culture to attract, develop, and retain top talent. By learning strategies for creating a talent pipeline, you can help address the challenges of a competitive labor market, fewer people pursuing utility industry careers and a high volume of employees nearing eligibility for retirement.
