Advanced Technologies and the Impact on Transportation Industry: A Workforce Conversation
As technologies advance and are steadily incorporated into the operations of transportation industries, workforce needs evolve at increasingly progressive rate across all levels. Technological impacts are widespread and create internal and external demands on both public and private sector agencies, businesses, and institutions. This webinar’s objective is to identify the impact advanced technologies have on the transportation industry. Presenters will examine the overall industry story – how services, customer relations, and employee needs are influenced. They will speak to current trends, best practices, and skill gaps that must be filled with up-to-date trainings and planning of potentially new certifications. Furthermore, presenters will look at the need for continued educational partnerships and their role in creating a steady pipeline of qualified employees into the workforce. Finally, speakers will conclude with how we merge what we know, with what we need, into proactive steps.
