Anti-social hours just not cricket

Durham
Country Cricket Club has called in consultants to help improve work-life
balance for its staff.

DCCC
chief executive David Harker, said, “I believe we’re the first sports club to
participate in something like this and it has given us a better understanding
of different pressures within business. We learned that the management and
staff can improve conditions.”

Graham
Everall, a consultant at GP who provided consultancy help to DCCC, says
work-life balance will change the way sports clubs operate.

“All
sports now have to be run as more of a business and off-the-field activity
places a whole range of burdens on staff," he said.

"There
are lots of employee issues that they didn’t have to deal with in the past. More
and more clubs will have to look at work-life balance because staff are being
asked to work long and anti-social hours.”
