Our People Plan 2021 – 2030

People Plan

Our Vision

In our Strategy for Growth 2021 to 2031, published during the coronavirus pandemic, we set out ambitious plans to transform our Governing Body. The pandemic has been a catalyst and has accelerated some of our plans, showing us just how resilient British Taekwondo can be.

Our People Plan offers an exciting opportunity to build on the positives of what we learned during the pandemic and will support our six strategic objectives, which are:

  • Develop and support our clubs and coaches
  • Provide development pathways for our members
  • Retain and increase participation
  • Operate to the highest standard of governance
  • Innovate and grow our organisation
  • Support success on the world stage

It will ensure we have people with the right skills, in the right roles, delivering the right outcomes, at the right time. This people plan will also take into consideration our volunteer workforce.

The world of work is changing at a rapid rate, with an increasingly diverse working population needing and expecting enhanced flexibility to balance their lives at work and at home. This people plan aims to respond to this and deliver increased organisational agility for British Taekwondo; placing a strong emphasis on working together so we can be prepared to be flexible and adaptable in the future.

We are embedding a personal development culture at British Taekwondo where clear performance targets are set for staff and volunteers in post. This includes access to appropriate CPD where needed to ensure that people have the right skills to deliver the very best outcome for our members.

We aim to be an inclusive organisation with highly motivated staff and volunteers who can use their skills and abilities to make a difference for our clubs and members, and be the best they can be.

Our People Plan has been shaped through surveys of our staff and volunteers and we will continue to hold consultation sessions with them, to ensure we are including what they think is important.

Staff and volunteers have confirmed that our core values are very relevant, but we recognise that developing these further to translate into individual behaviours will help us to more deeply embed them into our new ways of working.

People Plan Summary

This People Plan has been developed with the involvement of staff and volunteers to support the achievement of our Strategy for Growth 2021-2031.
