Key highlights on regulations, policies, and program funding for the transportation professional
Organizations at all levels are facing challenges attracting, retaining, and developing their workforce. For state and local agencies, such challenges can include a competitive hiring environment, recruiting young professionals, and meeting the demands of the public at a time of budgetary constraints.
Luckily, resources like the recently released NCHRP report offer locals and state DOTs the tools to evaluate their internal talent pipelines, assess hiring and retention practices, and identify strategies to mitigate the impact of staff turnover and institutional knowledge loss. The report also includes an action plan decision tree aimed at helping managers respond to real world workforce-based scenarios.
A product of the National Cooperative Highway Research Program, CALTAP staff contributed to this report in collaboration with workforce development partners.
"There can be no doubt that the transportation sector is the most critical sector of our economy."
