    Description: The perfect storm for loss of knowledge has been brewing for years at utilities.

     

    Employees with many years of service, an aging workforce, the last vestiges of pensions and/or a host of retirement options, utility culture and the highly technical nature of the work means that there are a lot of people with a lot of knowledge that could be lost as those people leave. The consequences can include repeating mistakes and otherwise losing lessons learned coupled with new and inexperienced workers that without the benefits of good mentors.
