Join Rosterfy and Sterling Volunteers for a webinar that will take a closer look at the importance of automating your process to remain engaged with your volunteers during COVID-19.
This webinar will feature Chris Heverin, Managing Director of Spartan Australia and Rosterfy's Co Founder, Shannan Gove, to discuss ways in which the events industry can work collaboratively to come out stronger and more united on the other side of COVID-19.
For our first US based webinar, we are fortunate to have Cassie Poss, Sports Events Manager, Visit Fort Worth and Megan Barr, Volunteer Manager, Indiana Sports Corp to discuss their experience building a successful workforce program.
Our next webinar features Matt Cullen, Volunteer Program Manager, ICC T20 World Cup 2020. Alongside Rosterfy's Co Founder, Bennett Merriman, this webinar will take a closer look at implementing a workforce program for a large scale event including strategies implemented to maximise engagement pre, during and post event.
How events are presented ahead, will be an altered version of what we have known. Many will transition into a form of digital, online or remote version with the underpinning philosophy of connecting still firmly in place.
Earlier this week, Co Founder Shannan Gove caught up with Chris Robb, CEO of Mass Participation Asia to reflect on the challenging landscape that the events industry are currently being forced to navigate.
Keeping volunteers engaged continues to be one of the biggest challenges for any Volunteer Manager. Over the next few months, Rosterfy will continue to share some creative tips for how to engage your existing volunteers and may even help you to recruit a few more!
For this weeks webinar, we are excited to host Zara Lawless, CEO, Mother's Day Classic Foundation and Sarah Clements, General Manager, Mother's Day Classic Foundation to discuss the far reaching impacts of COVID-19 and their bold decision to go virtual.
For our first webinar, we are excited to host Paula Bonaccorsi, National Volunteer Manager, Starlight Children's Foundation Australia to discuss the impacts of COVID-19 on the charity and not for profit sector and the importance of new ways of thinking when it comes to engaging and retaining their volunteers
"An incredible fit!"
"In our experience, [Rosterfy] has been an incredible fit," Hendrickson said. "The partnership, the flexibility, the level of attention-to-detail. It's graphically appealing and easy to navigate. We have volunteers who run the full gamete of ages 18 and up - and to be able to connect with that entire audience is really important to us and something that Rosterfy has been able to provide."

"It is cost-effective, scalable, and is not only easy to navigate administratively, but is quite attractive to the Gen Z students too"
"Though we have access to other online, electronic resources, we extensively researched volunteer management systems that would specifically fit our needs in versatile and valuable ways. Rosterfy quickly rose to the top. It is certainly cost-effective, scalable, and is not only easy to navigate administratively, but is apparently quite attractive to the Gen Z students we work with regularly. They find it visually appealing, and enjoy the volunteer portal, where they can find all communications, as well as certificates of completion, and words of gratitude before, during, and after volunteering. Overall, we look forward to optimizing our Rosterfy experience, and would suggest it for other higher education institutions looking for time-saving technology that is secure, innovative, and effective!”

"It’s made our lives so much easier!"
“Rosterfy has changed the face of how we run Daffodil Day. It enables us to manages the volunteers en-mass in a way that keeps them engaged and keeps them feeling loved. Managing 1,600 to 1,800 people on spreadsheets didn’t give our volunteer team any capacity to look at the volunteering experience – it was all focused on the act of rostering.
“We can retain our volunteer database year-on-year because we’ve improved the technology, their experiences and their training – it’s made our lives so much easier”

"A unique combination of knowledge and experience with a world leading platform"
"This year we have set a new bar for the NFL and successfully delivered the largest ever volunteer workforce for a Super Bowl with over 10,000 volunteers. Rosterfy has been at the core of every single touch point. From initial registration, screening, training, interviewing, assigning roles and shifts, through to game time check in and post event thankyou’s. The platform offers a true end-2- end solution to managing a complex, large scale program. I'm delighted that the success of this program has resulted in Minneapolis for SB LII, partnering with Rosterfy. With the team at Rosterfy being experienced event practitioners they offer a unique combination of knowledge and experience with a world leading platform."
