Serving the Correctional Workforce

The correctional workforce faces numerous challenges every day. Difficulties recruiting and retaining qualified correctional officers affects staffing levels. And the pandemic has certainly added its own risks of spreading within confined spaces, with many states shutting down prisons or transferring inmates as the virus takes over. Despite these concerns, administrators must run secure facilities that keep the incarcerated and their workforce safe.

With insufficient staffing and limited budgets, workforce safety and administrative oversight are key concerns. Though use of workforce management software, mobile technology and data-driven analytics agencies will be better able to effectively manage costs, enhance workforce operations and improve employee communications. With these types of tools, the correctional workforce will work smarter and operate safer.
