4. People

The people in your club, whether they be paid staff or volunteers such as the club office bearers, coaches, referees, umpires or registrar are the lifeblood of your club and your most important asset. Volunteers freely choose to give their time, skills and experience to support your club.

Developing a competent and capable workforce of volunteers and paid staff is critical to the development of your club and the sporting industry in NSW. 

Workforce planning is a continual process used to align the needs and priorities of the organisation with those of its workforce to ensure it can meet its legislative, and regulatory, service to members and organisational objectives.
