Managing volunteers for sporting events.
Most sporting events rely heavily on volunteers’ generous donation of time and labor. Whether juggling a handful of helpers or hundreds of volunteers the truth is the situation can be tricky since volunteers aren’t technically employees. Volunteers cherish their time on the job, want to feel appreciated and know their efforts are helpful. Plus, many volunteers are frontrunners when it comes to donations for fundraisers and ambassadors for the event. That’s why the key to successful management of volunteers is three-fold: what is done before, during and after the event.
