All water utilities, especially small systems, are struggling to recruit and retain experienced staff, in particular when a long-term operator or manager retires. This workshop will focus on succession planning and operator recruitment and retention strategies. We will discuss the links between workforce development, long-term system sustainability, and long-term planning that also includes communicating with decision-makers.
