Honoring Those Who Serve: Hiring Military Veterans for Utility Positions

Judy Jagdmann chaired NARUC's Task Force on Veterans' Workforce Development in 2017. The Task Force acknowledged the attrition of trained utility employees and veterans as a capable workforce for the utility sector. Commissioner Jagdmann will present the Task Force's final report and highlight best practices and lessons learned in the utility and government sectors for helping veterans transition from military service to utility-related work. Brian McAdoo will explain how Duquesne Light Company created a program to hire veterans, established a dedicated team and plan, and grew the program into the success it is today. Brian will describe Duquesne's real-world experience in diversifying its workforce by hiring veterans.
