Course Description

Have you had to address major shifts in work schedules, work capacity and manpower? Are you constantly looking at ways to cover the workload and demands being made on your crew? Do you wonder how you will fill the shoes of a retiring crew member? Succession planning is a hot topic and covers a wide array of focus areas including recording institutional knowledge, writing a job post, keeping current employees happy, planning for promotions within the crew, and more. The goal of this Roundtable discussion is to address your needs and questions, share ideas, and start the succession planning conversation with your public works colleagues. We hope to shed light on some of these questions and more.
