Prison Service sets goals for improving workplace

The
Prison Service has published its first HR strategy to improve conditions for
its 44,000 staff.

After
consulting with its staff for two years, the Prison Service identified four
goals that the strategy will attempt to achieve.

The
service is introducing the HR strategy in a bid to boost the performance of its
workforce.

The
scheme will focus on delivering professional HR, developing staff, rewarding
good work and managing bad performance and improving the workplace.

Gareth
Hadley, director of personnel for the Prison Service, said, “The HR strategy
will improve the way we employ and manage our staff. The Prison Service is
critically dependent upon its staff.

“We
will expect to demonstrate a strong commitment to the aim, objectives and
principles of the service and to respond flexibly to new challenges.

“Managers
must provide strong leadership, effective planning and management of
performance, a safe working environment, an open non-discriminatory culture,
recognition and development and effective personnel services.”
