AOD Workforce Study : NGO Insights 2021 is a research study purposefully designed to understand and enhance the AOD sector capacity to attract, develop, engage and retain a suitably qualified and capable workforce that will succesfully meet the needs of clients, their families and significant others, and the broader community in NSW and VIC. The study is part of an applied research partnership between NADA, VAADA and Curtin University. The study seeks to:

  • systematically establish and share robust evidence on the state and experiences of employees and volunteers operating across AOD services
  • inform leaders, policy and practices related to AOD service workplaces about how to best attract, retain, engage and develop their people
  • increased attention and attitude toward evidence-based decision making to make work better and thus improve AOD sector outcomes

Participation is open until 30th September 2021.
