Saint Paul, MN (PRWEB) February 3, 2010
The future workforce might be the single most important factor to determine the success of energy companies. The energy distribution business is built upon a workforce that can reliably and consistently serve customers around the clock, in all types of weather and load factors. Come to Lake Buena Vista, FL March 10-12, 2010 for Midwest ENERGY Association's (MEA) Spring Executive Summit and Board Meeting to discuss "Our Future Energy Workforce".
"It is imperative that we recognize the current and future challenges we will be presented with to maintain a high performing workforce. Successful companies must proactively identify and adapt to the changing needs of the workforce, rather than expect the workforce of tomorrow to adapt to their business practices. My colleagues and I will attend MEA's 2010 Spring Executive Summit to have a cross-functional discussion on "Our Future Energy Workforce." Because the topic is pertinent, it is time to deal with it so we can bring value to our companies by offering ideas on how to resolve this important issue," says Anthony McCain, chairman of MEA's Board of Directors and vice president of field operations at Nicor Gas.
Presentations will include:
- Disney's Approach to People Management
- Technical College Panel Discussion
- Training Strategy Drives Workforce Performance
- Succession Planning
- Florida Energy Workforce Consortium
- Healthcare of the Future
