Recruiting and retaining transportation maintenance workers is an ongoing and increasing challenge.

Recruiting and retaining transportation maintenance workers is an ongoing and increasing challenge. A project sponsored by the Minnesota Local Road Research Board seeks to address this by providing easily accessible online tools that local agencies can use to help recruit and retain maintenance professionals.

Join us for a webinar on July 9 at 9 a.m. hosted by project leaders to introduce and discuss this new resource.

A new website for the project—MNTransportationCareers.com—will launch on Tuesday, July 9, and serve as a portal for jobseekers, public works managers, human resources departments, employment counselors, and others. It will include easily accessible and shareable videos, brochures, a training guide, job board, case studies, and other resources.
