Helping Grattan Institute focus on creating policy for the Nation

Contributing policy for a nation

Grattan Institute is an independent Think Tank dedicated to developing high quality public policy for Australia’s future. It was formed in 2008 in response to a widespread view in government and business that Australia needed a non-partisan Think Tank providing independent, rigorous and practical solutions to some of the country’s most pressing problems.


Scaling up administrative staff quickly to meet project or event demand

Grattan Institute employs a small team of highly qualified individuals. When a large project comes along, they often need to scale up administrative staff quickly. They turn to Sidekicker to access short-term event and office assistants to help them out. Grattan Institute runs a number of events where additional staff are required to help out with a variety of tasks – from pre-event administration and customer support, to manning registration desks.


“At Grattan we are faced with fluctuating workloads, which can cause resource management issues. With Sidekicker this problem is largely solved as we have hassle-free access to pre-screened, independent assistants when we need them.” – Angela Henderson, Relationships Manager
