Exploring human resource management practices in nonprofit sport organisations
Contemporary business challenges and globalisation pressures have had asignificant impact on the human resource management (HRM) practices ofmany organisations. Whilst the adoption of more sophisticated, complexand strategic management systems is well documented in the general HRliterature, organisations that operate with both paid and volunteer humanresources have been virtually ignored by scholars. In this paper we reporton a study on the adoption of HRM practices by state sport organisationsin New South Wales, Australia. Our results indicate that despite pressuresto become more strategic in their people management, only a minorityof these sport organisations have formal HRM systems. We also founddifferences between the HRM practices used with paid employees andvolunteers particularly in organisations with formal HR policies. Researchand practical implications for HRM in sport organisations are discussedas well as future challenges.
