Workforce Skills of the Future Workshop: July 12-13, 2017
This workshop will explore changes in the workforce of water utilities and examine what thought leaders are saying about them. WE&RF funded researchers will combine results of the workshop with the results of literature searches and surveys, compare them with global leaders in the water industry and with other service industries, in an effort to forecast these major changes and provide suggestions to pro-actively address them.
