Serco staff set the benchmark on National Corrections Day
Published: 15 Jan 2021
Today Serco celebrates the dedicated staff delivering positive outcomes for local communities and those in custody across Australia and New Zealand for the past 15 years.
To mark the significance of National Corrections Day 2021, formal events for our staff at Southern Queensland Correctional Centre, Clarence Correctional Centre, Adelaide Remand Centre, Acacia Prison and Auckland South Corrections Facility (Kohuora) will acknowledge their outstanding achievements and commitment to the often challenging work they do to rehabilitate offenders and deliver better social outcomes.
Serco Australia CEO Peter Welling welcomed the opportunity to celebrate the achievements and valuable contributions of staff.
“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,” Mr Welling said.
“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,” Mr Welling said.
“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.”
