Successful clubs have good people doing great things. The people in your club, paid or volunteer, are your workforce and they are the people you need for your club to function eg. coaches, officials, volunteers and administrators.

If you understand your workforce, the number of people and skills required for the various roles, you are better placed to achieve your clubs desired outcomes.

Workforce planning is about ensuring you have:

  • the right people
  • in the right roles
  • for the right time
  • with the right skills, and
  • at the right cost.

In addition to these factors you should seek out people who reflect the behaviours and attitudes of the club.

As with any planning process you should apply these best practice principles to your workforce plan:

  • the current situation (current workforce breakdown)
  • what you will need in the future (workforce breakdown to achieve desired outcomes)
  • identify the gaps (what you need to add to achieve desired outcomes).
