Apprenticeships mean opportunity at Northwestern Energy

November 8, 2018

In Montana, we are celebrating a strong economy with growing wages, additional jobs and a culture of entrepreneurship. But our economic success means workers are in high demand, which brings new challenges for employers who are seeking to recruit and retain skilled employees.

As the labor relations analyst at NorthWestern Energy, I know it's important to have businesses and industries at the forefront of responding to Montana's worker shortage. I've had the privilege to serve as a member of the State Workforce Innovation Board that advises the governor on statewide workforce development strategies. And most recently, I accepted a position as chair of the Apprenticeship Advisory Council for the Montana Department of Labor & Industry, which provides guidance and supports the Montana Registered Apprenticeship Program.
