and Succession Planning Can Be Your Greatest Public Works Legacy!
Who will fill your shoes? By 2010, public works agencies are facing the retirement of 35-40% of their workforce. Who is going to replace them? No one, unless you act now to help secure the future of your community. As a public works professional, you've devoted your career to developing and maintaining the infrastructure that society has come to depend on. Now, your greatest leadership challenge is replacing yourself––seamlessly!
Outmoded recruitment, compensation, training and career development practices must undergo a major overhaul if public works wants to inspire and attract the talented leaders of tomorrow.
Make preparing the next generation of public works professionals the legacy you leave to your community--and your profession.
