Union Sanitary District has implemented a Succession Planning and Long-Term Staffing Program to address the challenges of a shrinking pool of qualified candidates and the loss of critical knowledge with the upcoming retirement of many long-term employees. Our approach differs from conventional models in that USD partnered with the employees' union in developing and implementing the program. Our program goes beyond addressing succession planning of management staff. USD has also been developing succession plans for key individuals such as electricians, mechanics, operators and administrative staff that possess valuable institutional and technical knowledge.
