Workforce Strategies for Managers: Build a Workforce Strategy - CANCELED

May 31, 2023

Who Should Attend:

Managers, senior leaders, human resource professionals, and general managers.

Webinar Overview:

This session will open with current workforce trends and explain why talent management is among the top concern of management and boards. We will review how utilities must align a workforce plan with the strategic plan, while identifying the greatest needs and gaps. Talent management is every manager’s responsibility, so the class will focus on how managers can prioritize needs and develop an action plan to address gaps in the workforce. Another key theme in this course is caring for employees and treating them as thoughtfully as other key resources.

The Workforce Strategies for Managers series will help utility managers think about their key resource—the workforce—and develop skills to attract, develop, and retain employees. The series will involve discussion of workforce strategies and help managers develop their teams, with a focus on emerging workforce challenges and opportunities. The series is designed to help managers plan and develop their direct reports to ensure their utility has the right people, in the right spots, at the right time.
