It’s been a busy month for Utility People. We kicked off the month by launching our Skill Shortage questionnaire at the Energy UK Conference which was a huge success. It was great to hear so many views on the subject, from apprentices who think their employers are doing a great job, to Senior Managers pulling their hair out trying to find ‘Skilled ‘staff to join their company. The shortage is a real problem for the Industry and if you haven’t completed the questionnaire already please take 2 minutes to share your views by clicking here.
The next stop for us in November was EMEX the event was a fantastic networking opportunity for our team and great to hear about the new technology and innovative solutions that are helping customers to increase their organisations energy efficiency.
Our Final stop was in Barcelona at the European Utility Week and with over 600 exhibitors and 12,000 international visitors, the event was one not to be missed. It was a great place for the Smart Energy community to come together and help the industry to drive efficiencies in meeting sustainable development goals. It was also a great opportunity for Utility People to share our questionnaire and speak with customers about the challenges they face in recruiting and retaining skilled staff.
Within a blink of an eye, November has whizzed by, but what a success it has been. The events have left us with so many key insights into how we can help our customers in the future and have provided us with a strong focus going forward in 2017.
