Small water systems are struggling to recruit and keep experienced staff. What will happen when your system’s long-term operator or manager retires? Who knows all that they know? This workshop will focus on succession planning, operator recruitment, and staff retention strategies. We will discuss links between workforce development, system sustainability, and long-term planning.

In this workshop, you will learn how to:
- Analyze gaps in your current workforce
- Write compelling job descriptions
- Re-brand your workplace culture to attract qualified applicants to
your candidate pool
- Retain excellent talent long-term
- Recruit and work with Millennials
- Prepare your utility for the Baby Boomer retirement phase with
succession planning tips

Trainer: Khris Dodson, Associate Director - Syracuse University Environmental Finance Center

Who Should Attend:
This workshop is designed for water systems serving 10,000 or fewer people (though systems of any size may attend), especially targeting local government systems facing financial challenges. Owners of privately owned systems, consultants and technical assistance providers serving water systems are also invited to attend.





The Smart Management for Small Water Systems program is administered by the Environmental Finance Center Network (EFCN), a university-based organization creating innovative solutions to the difficult how-to-pay issues of environmental protection and improvement.
