Keeping Australian air travel safe: HRM and AirServices Australia
Airservices Australia is the Australian Government agency responsible for managing Australia’s airspace, which is around 11% of the global airspace (Airservices Australia, 2019). There are many challenges presented to Airservices Australia including unprecedented growth in air travel, increased complexity in airspace (more air traffic, unregulated air traffic e.g. drones) as well as a worldwide shortage of air traffic controllers (Airservices Australia, 2019). The Airservices Workforce Plan (2013) identifies some major workforce planning issues including an ageing workforce, high turnover of short tenured employees and a recognition of a need for diversity.
However, recruiting enough air traffic controllers is a challenge. Internationally, according to Eurocontrol (2019), only 6% of all trainees recruited are ultimately selected for the role. Evidence suggests this is even lower in Australia with a success rate of around 3% of candidates making their way to successfully take on the role (Brown, 2019). Airservices recruitment process, (Figure 1) is aimed at creating an effective and efficient recruitment and selection process though a variety of stages.
