Paris 2024 undertook a mapping of the human resources required to deliver the Games to help the OCOG, SOLIDEO, and other stakeholders anticipate their recruitment needs and work together to develop appropriate plans to meet those needs.
The mapping, undertaken in 2019 and updated in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, had three objectives:
- Provide an assessment of the number of jobs directly created by the Games from 2018 to 2024, including when in the lead up to the Games they would be required.
- Determine the division of jobs between three broad sectors (construction, operations and organisation, tourism) involved in the delivery of the Games, with a breakdown by profession.
- Study the conditions required to meet human resource needs and to meet commitments in terms of access for those facing barriers to employment.
The mapping allowed Paris 2024 to work with its partners understand the training and labour market preparation required to help ensure the necessary workforce for each broad sector and profession. Specific focus was placed on professions facing recruitment challenges, in order to prepare for those challenges and ensure the successful delivery of the Games.
