Rosterfy, a volunteer and workforce scheduling software company, has been appointed as the Official Workforce Management Systems Provider for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

The technology provided by Rosterfy will support the 13,000 volunteers required to deliver the sporting event. Rosterfy will deliver an end-to-end solution to provide a “more connected, consistent and engaging experience for volunteers”.

Rosterfy will be applying relevant experience from many previous events, including the UEFA Euros 2020, the Super Bowl and Dubai Expo 2020, to ensure Birmingham 2022 not only delivers a world-class event, but also a memorable experience for the volunteers.

Adrian Corcoran, chief information officer at Birmingham 2022, said: “It is fantastic to have Rosterfy join us as our Official Workforce Management Systems Provider for Birmingham 2022. They have a strong track record in large scale events, making them the ideal company to provide comprehensive management of our volunteer workforce.

“Our volunteers will be at the heart of these Games and will shape the experience of those competing and attending. I have no doubt that Rosterfy will help us engage with them and allow them to connect with each other so we can deliver a memorable Commonwealth Games for all.”

Shannan Gove, co-founder of Rosterfy, said: “The team at Rosterfy are thrilled to have been selected as the Official Workforce Management Systems Provider for The Games. We are excited to work alongside the entire workforce team to ensure a world class experience for their volunteers and workforce.

“At Rosterfy we’re passionate about connecting communities to events and causes they’re passionate about. COVID-19 has kept the world in lockdowns and away from experiences that they love for more than a year now and we can’t wait to see the people of Birmingham supporting their city on the world’s stage.

“Time and time again, we continue to see large scale events create a robust volunteer programme only to let it dissolve once the event formally concludes, which isn’t sustainable. We’re excited to be working with Birmingham 2022 to ensure an ongoing legacy of volunteering, where volunteers can be engaged throughout the city for years to come.”
