Question

Is Your Utility Experiencing a Labor Shortage?

As older workers retire, many utilities are finding it difficult to replace them, and to attract employees with the skills needed to advance a 21st century industry. According to T&D World, Airswift and Energy Jobline found in a survey of over 17,000 professionals that “48 percent of power professionals are concerned about an impending talent emergency, with 32 percent believing the crisis to have already hit the sector and 38 percent reporting that their company had been affected by skills shortages.”

Is your utility experiencing a labor shortage? If so, do you expect it to worsen? What steps are you taking to address it?

We still don't have any answers to this question, can you help?
