Workforce Planning Framework

29 June 2017

Guide to analysing and forecasting the skills and roles sports organisations need to be successful.

This Workforce Planning Framework outlines how Sport New Zealand, the New Zealand Recreation Association (NZRA) and Skills Active will work with sport and recreation partners to make research and information available; provide advice, support, guidelines and resources; and raise awareness and promote workforce planning practices.

It draws on international best practice from other sporting organisations as well as organisations outside the sport and recreation sector.

This Framework describes four strategic priority areas:

  • Plan: Plan for a vibrant and sustainable workforce
  • Engage & recruit: Promote the sector as an attractive career and volunteering option
  • Support & develop: Up-skill staff and volunteers, and develop them for future roles
  • Reward & retain: Promote the recognition staff and volunteers
