Guidebook on Building Airport Workforce Capacity

This guidebook is the final product of a two-phase study to identify and evaluate workforce requirements for airports. Phase I, previously published as ACRP Web-Only Document 28, gathered information to analyze current and future airport job requirements and identify mission-critical airport occupations; assess the potential of current airport education, training, and resources to address workforce gaps; and project airport workforce capacity needs over the next 5 to 10 years. ACRP Research Report 186, which is the product of Phase II, builds on that preliminary analysis to identify optimal workforce planning and development strategies and best practices designed to help airports prepare their workforce for emerging industry changes. This report covers critical issues in (1) attracting new talent, (2) building internal staff capacity, (3) planning for future workforce needs, (4) identifying additional practices for future consideration, and (5) recommendations for implementing a workforce capacity building program over time.
