Managing sporting events has become big business in the Australian sporting and events scene. The economic and social benefits to the community arising from these events can be significant. However, the special characteristics of these events can produce problems for the management of the human resources within the organisations coordinating the event. The primary aim of this research was to determine how the nature of a pulsating major sport event impacts on management practices in each of the essential human resource (HR) stages. The secondary aim was to reveal the extent to which these management practices were tailored to the pulsating nature of events. The findings were then used to design a benchmark of personnel management practices that could be used to more effectively manage pulsating major sport event organisations.
