May 30 – Addressing Turnover in the Transit Industry

A Design-Thinking Workshop for Transit and Workforce Practitioners

The median age of transit workers is 51.  Research indicates that  approximately 50% of the transit industry’s workforce will retire over the next 10 years. Due to this demographic shift, demand for increasingly sophisticated skills, gaps in training, and industry perceptions, the transit industry needs to address these workforce and human capital issues that are critical to the continuing success of the industry.

This workshop will highlight these workforce trends and strive to pinpoint the contributing factors. Learning from a panel of professionals in the transit and workforce development industries, participants will work in groups to think through the problems and uncover solutions to mitigate the challenges of attracting and retaining the next generation of transit workers.
