NZFS Volunteer Sustainability Project

An Update From Rachel De Haas of the NZFS Human Resources Team

The research and recommendation phase of the volunteer sustainability project is coming along at a great pace.

Thank you very much to all of the brigades that have welcomed a visit from NHQ HR representatives to talk about their views on how their brigade operates and where areas for improvement may exist both locally and nationally.

These workshops have been very valuable and have given us a lot of feedback to include in our analysis.

There has also been a good response to the volunteer sustainability survey, which offered everyone the opportunity to feed into the project.  The responses are currently being collated and analysed.

Over the next six to eight weeks, all of the information will be brought together into a structured paper with recommendations.  This is a very exciting time for the NZFS - seeing how we can help to improve the attraction, retention and engagement of our volunteer workforce.

If you would like to find out more about any part of this project, please contact Rachel de Haas, Organisational Development Advisor on 027 443 9756 / 04 496 3607 /
