That’s a good point.
It’s true that the number of employees working for Hydro-Québec has decreased since 2013.
At the request of our shareholder, the Québec government, we cut our workforce by 2,000 jobs. This reduction was achieved by taking into account retirements as well as the operational requirements for ensuring high-quality service.
Our continued objective is to be as efficient as possible, while making sure we have the personnel required to meet the needs of our four million customers. The company now has about 19,500 employees, and hiring depends on our needs and our activities across Québec. For job openings, please go to our jobs site or our LinkedIn page.
