Our People

The ASC has a highly adaptable, capable and diverse workforce. The average staffing level of the ASC in the 2019–20 financial year was 454 full time equivalent staff employed on an ongoing, non-ongoing and casual basis.

Our workforce has access to:

  • Technology that allows them to work anytime, anywhere, delivered as part of our Technology Investment Roadmap.
  • An Enterprise Learning and Leadership Program which is building workforce capability through our Workforce Development Strategy.
  • A culture framework with our values of respect, integrity, teamwork and excellence in action embedded in our recruitment, induction, policy, learning and performance activities.
  • Diversity and inclusion strategies delivered through our Reconciliation Action Plan, human resource policies and culture framework.

Supporting our staff through the global COVID-19 Pandemic

In response to the declaration of a global pandemic by the World Health Organisation on 11 March 2020 the ASC enacted its Business Continuity and Pandemic Plans.

The ASC’s Business Continuity Plan (BCP) provides a timely and coordinated response to emergencies and business impact events for ASC employees, contractors, athletes and support staff and members of the public at the AIS Bruce Campus, State Offices and the European Training Centre in Italy.

Enacted as part of the BCP, the ASC’s Pandemic Plan (PP):

  • Assisted in reducing the impacts of a pandemic on the site, its staff and users.
  • Raised awareness and promoted preventative measures.
  • Provided support throughout the duration of the pandemic.
  • Ensured response activities were consistent with wider government and community responses.

Following enactment of the PP the Pandemic Sub-Committee was convened to provide a coordinated response to all Pandemic related risks across the organisation. Multiple activities were implemented to support the ASC workforce during COVID-19 including:

  • Flexible working arrangements supported by ICT technology which enabled the workforce to quickly transition to work from home.
  • Dedicated online COVID-19 resource centre providing guidance and support materials e.g. leave arrangements, health assessment forms, return to work matrix.
  • An online form completed by staff to capture their weekly working arrangements e.g. on site, at home.
  • Periodical wellbeing staff surveys.
  • Webinars and training materials.
  • Weekly enterprise-wide communications.
  • Mobility program to mobilise the workforce to meet changing needs, internally or as part of the Australian Public Service mobility program.
  • Contribution to broader Government strategies.

The ASC’s Pandemic Sub-Committee continues to monitor Government messages and directions and continues to develop guidance material for staff consistent with advice from the Australian Government Department of Health.

From 1 July 2018 the ASC became a participating institution in the National Redress Scheme.
