Work for Water Website

The Water Environment Federation and the American Water Works Association have joined forces on a public outreach campaign and web-based clearinghouse that enhances the image of water careers and exhorts students and job-seekers to “Work for Water.”

The “Work for Water” campaign promotes water careers as both professionally fulfilling and aligned to the greatest public health and environmental cause of our day. The outreach addresses one of the water community’s top concerns in the coming decade: the expected retirement of 30 percent of the water workforce and the need to recruit new talent to the industry.

About Workforce Sustainability 

Workforce Sustainability.jpgA shortage of workers spurred by the gradual aging and retirement of baby boomers is beginning to affect all organizations across the nation, and the water sector is no exception.  As more and more baby boomers age and retire, the workforce shortage is projected to be even more acute in the next 10 to 15 years. To respond to these challenges, WEF is working with its members and partners to develop a variety of resources, fact sheets, case studies and networking opportunities.
