Date & Time:

The Developing Succession Plans for Water Staff training will be held on the following date and time:

April 9 9:00AM-11:00AM 


This training is being held in Pacific Time.


A few of the long-time employees at your utility have decided to retire or otherwise move on. Do you have a plan for replacing these valuable assets? Your options are to advertise for new staff, update job descriptions, ensure that your wages are comparable and hope for the best. Or, with a little forethought you can promote from within. All it takes is some planning, preparation and making sure that your staff are cross trained in multiple genres. The planning and preparation could potentially help to train the operator do billing or training the secretary to become certified as a water operator or to send the monthly reports to the state for example.


This workshop will cover:

·        The basics of seeking new employees

·        Updating job descriptions

·        Advertising for the open position

·        Interviewing job applicants

·        Hiring and training new staff

·        Methodology for cross training staff to fill positions within your organization


This training will be hosted online on GoToTraining.
