Botanic Gardens Staff Resourcing Review

Xyst provided an independent review of staffing resourcing to help the Parks and Open spaces department to determine appropriate resources and a structure for the Botanic Gardens in the future. There was only enough staff to perform basic maintenance of the gardens so Xyst carried out a benchmarking analysis to assess how other Botanic Gardens from around Australia and New Zealand resource their Botanic Gardens. This analysis suggested staffing structures and provided a recommendation about sufficient staffing numbers to service and maintain the gardens presently and in the future. This was broken into three stages of needs: short term, medium term and long term.
