Sustainability Workshops

Capturing and Transferring Institutional Knowledge

Approximately 50% of our University's workforce will be eligible to retire within the next five years. Many of our employees have been with us for many years, accumulating priceless knowledge. This workshop will cover succession planning tools and best practices you can implement to plan ahead before you or a co-worker retire. Don't lose valuable institutional knowledge, keep it!
