We rely on our highly-skilled employee base and contractors to keep the power flowing to our growing city. Management approach to employment Corresponds with Toronto Hydro’s Material Aspect: Employee Attraction and Retention Like other utilities in Ontario, we’re facing workforce attrition, and in response to this, are actively recruiting new talent to replace these positions. We’re giving special attention to the certified and skilled trades, and designated and technical professional positions. These jobs require a specialized skill set — which takes years to acquire — in order to design, build and maintain our distribution system safely. Through our varied apprenticeship programs, we’re working to ensure that our seasoned trades professionals are able to transfer their knowledge to the next generation of employees. Our corporate culture is central to our ability to attract and retain talent and we’re committed to creating a positive work environment. This is accomplished by acknowledging and leveraging the similarities and differences of our employees; enabling people to perform individually and collectively to their full capability; and supporting an environment in which talent, contribution and professionalism is cultivated to the benefit of Toronto Hydro, our employees and customers.
