Abstract:

Over the past years, it has become more evident that utilities will be facing significant challenges in the future recruiting new employees to replace those members of the baby boomer generation who will be retiring. With increased technical requirements and a decreasing employment pool, developing employees from within to promote to newly vacant positions has become one reasonable solution. In other industries, Mentorship Programs have been shown to increase the success of the internal promotion process.
