Setting the Benchmark on National Corrections Day
Serco Asia Pacific CEO Peter Welling has paid tribute to the dedication of his staff at several correctional facilities in the ANZ region as Australia commemorates National Corrections Day 2021.
Highlighting the achievements of Serco staff employed at Southern Queensland Correctional Centre, Clarence Correctional Centre, Adelaide Remand Centre, Acacia Prison, and Auckland South (Kohuora) Corrections Facility, Welling commented:
“Serco has provided outstanding service in corrections around Australia and New Zealand for the past 15 years. With our Government partners, we focus on rehabilitation and reintegration to reduce reoffending and to support safer communities.
“The range of rehabilitation, education and training programs we provide at our correctional facilities gives us confidence that those in our care are better prepared for release and reintegration into society having been equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to turn their lives around.”
“I would like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our staff who are committed to helping rebuild the lives of those in our care. We are particularly proud that due to the ongoing efforts of our staff and their innovative thinking, to date we have had no COVID-19 cases in any of the five correctional facilities operated by Serco in Australia and New Zealand.
“National Corrections Day provides a great opportunity for us to celebrate the success of our people, recognise their dedication to making a positive difference every day and thank them for their service.”
