Carefully planned onboarding and training for employees helps Transit Wireless retain its workforce, according to Louise Golding, the company’s senior vice president of people and business operations. She said Transit Wireless focuses on building sourcing pipelines across all aspects of the market in wireless communications, making sure it taps into as many diverse groups’ populations as possible. Golding spoke during an AGL Virtual Summit in June at the session, “Initiatives Grow the Communications Infrastructure Workforce and Increase Diversity,” moderated by Todd Schlekeway, president and CEO of NATE: The Communications Infrastructure Contractors Association.
As a 5G wireless communications company, Transit Wireless finances, designs, builds, operates and maintains networks in transit and other localities, supporting the 5G rollout across smart cities and technology, Golding said. Key partners she named are the New York City Subway and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
In speaking of people Transit Wireless needs to hire, Golding said the company seeks people with learning agility, who are who have a deep technical expertise in engineering and telecommunications and who have a propensity to expand and broaden their knowledge and skill sets into other verticals.
“We’re looking at lot more roles with a broader application for that need while equally retaining that deep expertise that stands out for our engineering excellence,” Golding said.
