Episode Description

The buzz: “Your hires are only as good as your hiring process and those responsible for making hiring decisions” (Roberta Matuson).Digitization is a major disruptor throughout the utilities industry, with the impact on the workforce front and center. With an estimated 30-50% of utilities workers eligible for retirement within the next decade, the industry is facing a serious workforce shortage. The biggest challenge in all this is how to attract and retain the Millennial generation work staff. The experts speak. Robert Thiele, OpenText: “When you look at Millennials, in particular, in the workplace, they have an underlying desire to shape where they work; to make a contribution, to see that the role they play has a direct tie to a benefit in society” (Jim Link, Randstad North America). James McClelland, SAP: “If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn’t change you” (Fred DeVito, Exhale Mind Body Spa). Join us for Impact of Digitization on the Utilities Workforce: How We Do Work – Part 2.
