Electricity Human Resources Canada (EHRC) surveyed sector employers in mid-April 2020 to determine how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected their operations and workforce. While employers look to balance operational reliability and workforce safety, they expressed concern around the ability to hire and retain staff, and financial stability over an extended period of heightened precautions.
The findings were shared with the federal government to help inform their response. Read the summary report to see how sector employers are continuing with essential work while keeping their employees safe, and what kinds of support they are calling for.
We thank all those who contributed feedback and thank all essential workers in the sector who are powering our communities during this time.
