The recent COVID-19 Pandemic compelled me to share a video on how the Energy Sector workforce is evolving today. I refer to a diverse workforce having no age limit as Multi-Generational. Enjoy and Stay safe. FRANK

A few years ago as President & CEO of Columbia Power Corporation, I spoke at the Marcus Evans Utility Conference in New Orleans regarding the Power Industry Workforce spanning all working generations.  I feel the current COVID-19 Pandemic is teaching the Energy Sector a valuable lesson regarding "social distancing" and how our workforce is going to evolve.  No doubt the pipe line of professional in all industries will see this new breed of worker.  Knowing the utility worker is a critical function in preserving quality of life our ability to keep electric generators operating and supplying electricity will require us to adapt. 

Enjoy this short video and stay safe.

Francis - thanks for sharing.  Years ago we were talking about the aging workforce.  Now we are talking about the multi-generational workforce because many of the people we thought would retire did not.  I still worry that there is a lack of younger people coming into the power industry.
