Like other utilities in Ontario, Toronto Hydro is facing workforce attrition and in response to this, is actively recruiting new talent to replace these positions. Special attention is being given to the certified and skilled trades, and designated and technical professional positions. These jobs require a specialized skillset, which take years to acquire, in order to design, build and maintain the distribution system safely. Through varied apprenticeship programs, Toronto Hydro is working to ensure that seasoned trades professionals are able to transfer knowledge to the next generation of employees. Toronto Hydro’s corporate culture and commitment to creating a positive work environment is central to the ability to attract and retain talent. This is accomplished by acknowledging and leveraging the similarities and differences of the 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, employees and customers.
