The Australian not for profit Workforce Study is led by the Centre for Social Impact at The University of Western Australia Business School in collaboration with the University of New South Wales and Swinburne University; and supported through the Australian Research Council, EY, Australian Scholarships Foundation, and Australian Executor Trustees.
The study will answer:
What are the most potent means to make Not-for-Profit work more developmental, healthy, meaningful, and productive? What are the needs and barriers for developing critical knowledge, skills, and abilities to succeed in the Not-for-Profit sector? What can leaders, staff, volunteers and funders do to address the above?
The study’s desired outcomes will be:
Increased attention and attitude toward the Not-for-Profit workforce. Engaged organisations and leaders who adopt evidence-based practices for making work more developmental, healthy, meaningful, and productive. Informed funders and policy makers who use evidence to invest into a successful and sustainable Not-for-Profit workforce and sector.
Findings from the research will be publically available in 2018.
