With a strong economy, aging population, and record-low unemployment, most industries are struggling through a labor shortage. Many community-owned utilities face the added challenge of competing for senior staff with better-financed investor-owned utilities, rural electric cooperatives, larger municipal utilities, and the vendor sectors. The unique energy workforce solution from MFP-Connect enables utilities to fill critical skills gaps and mentor staff through the placement of retired executives on an interim basis.
