Attracting, Retaining, and Developing the Transportation Workforce: Transportation Planners

The objectives of this research are to (1) identify KSAEEs and talent profiles for state, regional, and local transportation planners that are aligned with existing and emerging agency needs; and (2) provide guidance on how agencies can attract, develop, manage, and retain planning talent. The results of the research can inform university curricula and will assist directors of agency planning programs, human resource managers, and transportation agency leadership in attracting, developing, and retaining planning professionals for near- and long-term transportation agency needs.
